Studenteropgave: Fagmodulprojekt


This project report examines the individual’s opportunities and limitations for self-realization while being unemployed.
For the project to clarify which conditions must be present, in order for the late-modern individual to realize oneself, an analysis of our theoretical data and semi-structured interviews, has been conducted. The project has been substantiated by the use of critical theoretical orientation, supported by Axel Honneth's recognition theory and Hartmut Rosa's theoretic regards of alienation and acceleration.
First of all, this has led us to conclude, that there are many nuances of being unemployed and it would take an immense effort to draw a complete picture of unemployment, as there are just as many different experiences of being unemployed, as unemployed themselves.
Furthermore, the analysis reveals the historical, social og structural conditions, which are the basis for understanding worklife and the circumstances of the danish labor market today. From the theoretical work of Axel Honneth, we find that our informants seek recognition from the social community at the workplace. Additionally, when looking at the discussing analysis, it can be concluded that there are situations in which the individual becomes alienated at work and recognition from the workplace then becomes less important, than dealing with the pressure that comes from the danish society today.
