Vad tror du att du egentligen tror?: En studie av gymnasieelevers uppfattning kring religion och religiositet
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This essey examines high school student’s religiosity and their views on religion. This view is later compared with the student’s description of their own faith. The essay uses a qualitative research method where the students are given open questions which they answer freely. The answers are then analyzed by attribution theory, knowledge sociology and the theory of late modern religiosity. This essey shows that students are very inconsistent in their presentation of what they believe compared to how they define their faith. Students also tend to have little confidence in the institutionalized religions and authorities; this gives them an individualized transcendent view on the world. This worldview that is generally influenced by external factors consists of religious influences from many cultures and religions that are mixed together into a personal faith.
