Skam ondskabens psykologi

Kathrine Jacobsen

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


In the current project my focus has been on how shame can play a role in the development of evil within man. To begin with I have made a presentation of my understanding of evil and shame based on the chosen theorists. Following I have gone more in to depth by explaining shame and how the individuals handle shame based on some chosen concepts. Among others I look into the concepts of cognitive dissonance, stigma and developmental psychology. After finding that shame develops in ones early ages I have further looked into how Erik Erikson describes the development of our identity. It is a theoretically based project and in my final discussion I will use all the chosen theory and hold it against my own thoughts and this will finally end up in a conclusion.
