AbstractAvhandling (doktorgrad) - Norges idrettshøgskole, 2016
The main research question in this thesis is why sport morally matters, or, reframed in Honneth’s
terminology, what is the potential of sport as a sphere for recognition? I have argued for the relevance
of Honneth’s theory in order to gain insight into sport and its value both to athletes and to society.
Honneth seeks a description of human agency that is constituted and maintained through
intersubjective relationships. To individuals, receiving recognition in three forms, love, rights and
solidarity, is vital for developing basic self-confidence, self-respect, and self-esteem. These forms of
‘practical relation-to-self’ are essential for identity-formation and autonomy, as well as being
prerequisites for self-realization (Honneth, 1995, p. 129). Since recognition is intersubjective, it has to
be mutual in order to be a manifestation of recognition. It therefore also affects a person’s
relationship to other persons.
Paper 1 seeks to answer the research question by discussing the three forms of recognition, or the lack
of them, within sport. Paper 2 discusses the concept of love within sport. Paper 3 discusses the concept of rights within sport. Paper 4 discusses the concept of solidarity within sport.

The Evolution of beliefs and opinions on matters related to marriage and sexual behaviour among French-speaking Catholic Quebecers and English-speaking Protestant OntariansMalherbe, Paskall; Miller, Caia; Laplante, Benoit (Canadian Population Society, 2006-01-01)<b>English</b><p>The authors argue that the important changes in behaviour related to family andsexual life that were seen in Quebec during the second half of the 20th centuryare a consequence of a major transformation of the foundation of the normativesystem shared by the members of Quebec's main socio-religious group, French speakingCatholics. Using data from Gallup polls, the authors compare theevolution of the opinions of French-speaking Quebec Catholics and English speakingOntario Protestants on matters related to sexual and family behaviourfrom the 1950s to the beginning of the 2000s. The general result is that theevolution of the differences between the two groups is compatible with thehypothesis.<p><b>French</b><p>Les auteurs proposent d’expliquer les importants changements qui se sontproduits, dans le Québec de la deuxième moitié du 20e siècle, dans lescomportements liés à la famille et à la vie sexuelle par la transformation dusystème normatif des membres de son principal groupe socio-religieux, lesfrancophones catholiques. À partir des données de sondages Gallup, ilscomparent l'évolution des opinions des francophones catholiques du Québec etdes anglophones protestants de l’Ontario sur des questions liées à la famille etau comportement sexuel et de famille des années 1950 à 2000. L’évolution desdifférences entre les deux groupes est compatible avec l’hypothèse.
