Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt


This study examines the moral, social and discursive aspects of lies in the everyday lives of young people. The project is based upon empery collected through two focus group interviews, hence the short bibliography. The focus groups are divided by gender and each contains five participants including a same-sex interviewer. The focus groups were each given a series of questions about definitions and assessments from which we analyzed the discourses of lying within the groups. The empery is analyzed by the analytical devices featured in Sally Wiggins “Discursive Psychology” (2016) and contains a categorization of everyday lies created by collective introspection. The lies are divided into categories by intentions, social acceptance and possible outcomes. Furthermore, the study contains a discussion of the rhetorical methods by which the participants distance themselves and their persona from the delicate subject of lying.
Our main focus is examining the way young people talk about lies in social interactions, and how these discussions can create new discourses. Therefore, the study also contains a social physiological approach to analyzing the social interactions within the groups and how they affect one another through the creation, and discussions of discourses.
The conclusion of the study is that: lies, the intentions and acceptance and the discourses of them, are subjective, and variate from one individual to another.
