Abstract [en]

A recent report by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention in cooperation with the Swedish Security Service shows that the Internet has been extensively used to spread propaganda by proponents of violent political extremism, characterized by a worldview painted in black and white, an anti-democratic viewpoint, and intolerance towards persons with opposing ideas. We provide five arguments suggesting that philosophical dialogue with young persons would be beneficial to their acquisition of insights, attitudes and thinking tools for encountering such propaganda. The arguments are based on stated requirements for problem solutions given by experts in violent political extremism, recent research about the effects of philosophical dialogue in young persons’ thinking skills, and parts of the basic theoretical framework of Philosophy for Children. Philosophical dialogues seem a promising way for young people to achieve a stronger democratic awareness and a more tenacious resistance against extremist views online.

Abstract [sv]

En nyligen publicerad rapport från Brottsförebyggande rådet i samarbete med Säkerhetspolisen visar att Internet i stor utsträckning används som ett propagandaverktyg av förespråkare för våldsam politisk extremism, karakteriserad av en svartvit världsbild, ett anti-demokratiskt förhållningssätt och intolerans mot oliktänkande. Vi presenterar fem argument för att filosofiska samtal med unga människor skulle hjälpa dem att förvärva insikter, förhållningssätt och tankeverktyg som kan användas för att bemöta propagandan från extremistiska rörelser av detta slag. Våra argument baserar sig på förslag på strategier för att motverka våldsam politisk extremism framförd av experter inom detta område, nytillkommen forskning om effekter av filosofiska samtal på unga människors färdigheter i tänkande samt delar av det grundläggande teoretiska ramverket för filosofi för barn (Philosophy for Children). Filosofiska samtal verkar vara ett lovande sätt för unga människor att nå en starkare demokratisk medvetenhet och ökad motståndskraft mot extrema åsikter på Internet.
