  • Att köra eller inte köra Hur de äldre, åldrande och bilkörning har diskuterats i svensk transportpolitik
  • 2008
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • <p>The objective of this study is to analyse the formation of older and ageing drivers in Swedish transportation policy. Documents from the Swedish Government, the Riksdag and, in a few cases, public authorities and newspapers are analysed. The discourse-analytical framework is inspired by Foucault’s archaeology, which is used as a tool box.</p> <p>The study identifies/constructs three periods in the formation of older and ageing drivers. In the first period (1934–1967) there is a discursive gap between statements about driver selection and traffic safety. Driving in ‘old age’ is a problem for medical expertise and mandatory tests are proposed. The proposals are rejected, as older people’s driving is not a problem in the discourse of traffic safety.</p> <p>In the second period (1967–1991) ‘older drivers’ is made up as a category of interest. ‘Older drivers’ become an accident population in the discourse of traffic safety due to changes in statistical practices. In the third period (1991–2006) a discourse of older peo-ple’s mobility is appearing alongside the discourses of traffic safety and driver selection.</p> <p>Moreover, the study traces how the statements of older and ageing drivers are ordered by more general ideas of the aged and ageing. Double discourses of ageing are followed by a dichotomisation in ‘healthy’ and ‘sick older drivers’ in the 1990s. The idea of an abrupt exit in old age alters to a more gradual exit, in its turn followed by challenging the very idea of exit.</p>

  • Recognizing Aspects of Oneself in the Theory of Gerotranscendence
  • 2009
  • Rapport (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • <p>The theory of gerotranscendence describes a development involving new understandings of the self, relationships to others, and fundamental existential questions. When learning about the theory, individuals frequently claim that they recognize aspects of themselves in it. This represents a bottom-up relationship between reality and theory, where the validity of a theory is spontaneously confirmed by individuals of flesh and blood – not by any formal theory testing procedure. But what does it really mean to recognize aspects of oneself in a scientific theory, and how should such recognition be understood?</p> <p>The present paper reports on an in-depth study of a single individual case of such recognition or identification. The informant had first learned about the theory of gerotranscendence through a short presentation on a TV program. Because she felt she was familiar with aspects of the theory and saw them in herself, she emailed her insights to the second author. This self-report was followed by lengthy in-depth interviews with the informant conducted by the first author. The interviews revealed how this active, alert and mentally healthy subject had felt an immense relief and happiness when she learned about the theory, because the theory presented evidence that the development she was experiencing was both normal and healthy. A narrative analysis suggests that the informant’s individual life, including positively handled crises and turning points in a life course category labeled ‘Life as a hurdle race’, has paved the way for certain reevaluations and reconsiderations that may be prerequisites for the development of gerotranscendence. The informant’s earlier notes in diaries and small booklets rule out any suspicion that the life story she presented may have been tailored to fit the theory.</p>
