The safe, well-known&nbsp;<br>everyday life is being disturbed, and the patients lose their opportunity to&nbsp;<br>have a normal youth, either periodically or permanently. Childhood cancer&nbsp;<br>survivors narrate that their cancer survival is characterized by positive words to rhetorical symbolize that the&nbsp; individual has beaten cancer: a success or a&nbsp;<br>victory. Surviving cancer are rarely without physical, mental and social late&nbsp;<br>effects. The survival has an underexposed downside: the risk of a life with severe&nbsp;<br>late effects that is significant for the survivors and have great consequences&nbsp;<br>for their ability to be a part of and contribute to society.&nbsp;<br>This article present sub results from the empirical qualitative Ph.D.-project&nbsp;<br>Social Consequences of Childhood Cancer including qualitative interviews and&nbsp;<br>observational studies. The study exposes some of the social consequences of&nbsp;<br>childhood cancer that occur post-cancer based on the perspective of 23 survivors&nbsp;<br>(aged 18-39). In addition, Erwing Goffman's and Aaron Antonovskys&nbsp;<br>theories of stigma and performance, as well as other relevant research literature,&nbsp;<br>are used to discuss and substantiate the consequences caused by late&nbsp;<br>effects described by child cancer survivors.&nbsp;</p> 2020-09-08T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Dansk Sociologi Co-creation and co-production: An interdisciplinary conceptual exploration 2021-09-09T13:20:14+00:00 Ella Paldam <p>In recent years, the two concepts of co-creation and co-production have become&nbsp;<br>key in project organization in the private and the public sectors in Denmark.&nbsp;<br>Yet, the conceptual and practical implications of the two concepts remain&nbsp;<br>unclear. Are they just a new tool that harnesses volunteerism to cut process&nbsp;<br>costs? This paper uses the results from a systematic literature search to&nbsp;<br>explore the interdisciplinary history of the two concepts. Co-production was&nbsp;<br>coined in political economy to study infrastructure and societal redistribution&nbsp;<br>of resources. Co-creation emerged in the literature on user-led innovation&nbsp;<br>and product development. The two concepts are translated into one word in&nbsp;<br>Danish, samskabelse. The literature search shows that the Danish concept of&nbsp;<br>samskabelse was used in two specific research fields before the more recent&nbsp;<br>surge of the concept began: in systems theoretical psychology and in anthropological&nbsp;<br>research on indigenous peoples’ religions. From these four fields of&nbsp;<br>origin, the paper suggests four basic assumptions in samskabelse: 1) Attention&nbsp;<br>to resources is necessary to understand incentives, 2) shared creativity leads&nbsp;<br>to innovation, 3) any collaboration is a system of relations, and 4) any collaboration&nbsp;<br>is situated in the contexts of all the partners. In conclusion, the paper&nbsp;<br>discusses how co-production and co-creation may be useful when partners&nbsp;<br>from different sectors or disciplines wish to collaborate.&nbsp;</p> 2020-09-08T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Dansk Sociologi Struggle for Recognition versus Communicative Action – A Comparative analysis of the concept of praxis in Honneths and Habermas’ political philosophy and political sociology 2021-09-09T13:19:46+00:00 Øjvind Larsen <p>The concept of praxis is one of the most fundamental concepts in political&nbsp;<br>philosophy and political sociology from Antiquity to our time.&nbsp;<br>Aristotle creates a concept of praxis, which is one of the fundamental concepts&nbsp;<br>in political philosophy and political sociology. Hegel gives the concept&nbsp;<br>a new formation with his concept of praxis as Sittlichkeit or Ethical Life. Both&nbsp;<br>Habermas and Honneth take their point of departure in the young Hegel’s&nbsp;<br>scriptures, when they try to formulate a new concept of praxis, which can be&nbsp;<br>relevant for our time.&nbsp;<br>In a smart maneuver, Habermas places language as a substitute for Hegel’s&nbsp;<br>concept of the spirit. On this basis, Habermas succeeds in formulating&nbsp;<br>a practical political philosophy, which can unite praxis and Ethical Life in a&nbsp;<br>theory of communicative action. Habermas’ political philosophy leads immediately&nbsp;<br>to a political sociology, which can be the basis for an empirical sociological&nbsp;<br>exploration of the institutions of modern society.&nbsp;<br>Honneth is critical towards Habermas’ linguistic form of political sociology.&nbsp;<br>Honneth wants to sustain classical critical theory’s substantial perspective.&nbsp;<br>He focusses on Hegel’s concept of struggle for recognition, which he places&nbsp;<br>in a modern democratic perspective. Honneths political sociology forms&nbsp;<br>the basis for an empirical research in conflicts and violations in the institutions&nbsp;<br>of society.&nbsp;</p> 2020-09-08T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Dansk Sociologi Problemet med ikke-vestlige indvandrere 2021-09-09T13:19:17+00:00 Lisbeth B.
