Loneliness and Hearts of Stone : A Study about Moral Development, Ethics Teaching and Astrid Lindgren´s Books (English)
Abstract [en]

This is a study about the following of Astrid Lindgren’s books The Brothers Lionheart and Mio, my son. The purpose of this study is to find out how moral development according to Lawrence Kohlberg’s theory may apply to the books protagonists.

I have used a hermeneutic method for the analysis of Lindgren’s books. The books belong to the category children’s literature which is a valuable contribution to teaching from many aspects. The study shows that the books are well suited for teaching because there are many ethical questions to be discussed. The books may also help the pupils with their questions about life and help them to create their very own identity. Throughout the books the pupils get to learn about loneliness and how to handle it.
