Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate what the phenomenon of ethical competence can mean and what function reading of fiction might mean for the development of ethical competence. Furthermore, it has also discussed what conclusions one can draw from this for ethics education in the religious studies subject.

In order to answer the essays aim, the aim has been divided into two main questions and a discussion question. The main questions were: what is ethical competence? What does the reading of fiction mean for the development of ethical competence? The discussion question was: what conclusions can be drawn from the answers from question 1 and 2 in relation to ethics education in religious studies? The basic data to answer the essay questions consists of two theories on reading and which importance fiction has. The material was then examined and analyzed with a sort of qualitative text analysis.

The results of the study show two different theories about what ethical competence can mean. The theories show different, but similar, conclusions on how the reading of fiction can be seen as a source if a person wants to develop its own ethical competence. It was also discussed whether ethical competence should be seen as part of the ethics education or not. The results of this discussion was that it’s possible to argue that the development of ethical competence of students should be seen as an integral part of ethics education as ethical competence contains elements that should be seen as part of the general education mission (fostransuppdrag) that the school in Sweden has.
