Boy-next-door goes Punk : A study of people in the late modern era (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka hur den senmoderna människans åsikter yttrar siggällande utbildning, arbete, fritidssysselsättning, resor, konsumtion och tro. Vidare vill jag undersöka ifall informanterna och deras åsikter kan kopplas samman med Mary Douglas teorier om kulturella typer och hur det yttrar sig. Jag vill även analysera om de är klassificerbara som David Brooks nyligen introducerade typ, BoBos. Slutligen vill jag undersöka huruvida mina informanter är typiska för dagens senmoderna samhälle.

Den slutsats jag kom fram till var att informanterna är typiska för dagens senmoderna samhälle och att har de karaktäristiska drag som med fördel kan hänvisas till BoBos. De är individualistiska, relativistiska och delvis paradoxala, vilket också är tydligt i deras åsikter om hur de själva kan kategoriseras som grupp.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how the late modern man's opinions manifest themselves with regards to education, work, leisure, travel, consumption and faith. Furthermore, I examine whether the informants and their views may be linked to Mary Douglas's cultural theory of cultural types. I also want to analyze whether they are classifiable as David Brooks` recently introduced type, BoBos. Finally, I examine whether my informantsare typical of today's late modern society.

The conclusion I came to was that the informants are typical of today's late modern society and that they usefully can be referred to as BoBos. They are individualistic, relativistic and partly paradoxical, which is apparent in their views of themselves as being classifiable as a group.
