Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This study is based on qualitative and hermeneutic methods. The investigation summarises how four textbooks present Buddhism in (school) subject Religion, such as texts and images. Two of them are used in Religious studies A, the rest is used in Religious studies 1. The study rests on the theories of orientalism and christocentrism, where both can be related to the concept of making secondary. In the research background there are descriptions of how the western world looks upon Buddhism in a historical perspective, but also how Buddhism in a modern age is represented. The (school) subject Religion for Religious science A was written in 2008 and the (school) subject Religion for Religious science 1 in 2006 and 2007. In an overview the analysis shows that all of the four textbooks are putting most of the focus in Buddha, the buddhist teaching, monks, nuns and temple life. The buddhist teaching is also more centrally described than the practical concept.
