Moral Vitalism : An inquiry concerning predictors of individual extent of belief in good and evil as agentic forces (English)
Abstract [sv]

Moralisk vitalism beskriver en tro på goda och onda krafter som oberoende och självständigt tänkande, krafter som kan påverka människor och händelser i världen. Konceptet moralisk vitalism och instrumentet för att mäta grad av tro på det presenterades av Bain et al. (2015). Tidigare forskning indikerar att det kan finnas ett samband mellan grad och tro på moralisk vitalism och sprititualitet (Bain et al., 2015) samt personlighetsdraget neuroticism (Lace et al., 2016).

Syftet med den föreliggande studien var att undersöka de eventuella sambanden vidare.

Studien använde sig utav en kvantitativ ansats med 51 deltagare. För att samla in data gällande personliga värderingar så användes Portrait Values Questionnaire 40-items av Schwartz (2012) och för att mäta neuroticism så användes Big Five Index (John & Srivastava, 1999).

Studiens resultat visar, inom stickprovet, på ett positivt samband mellan konservativa värderingar och grad av tro på moralisk vitalism. Inom ramarna för studiens storlek så tyder detta på att individer som har konservativa värderingar tenderar att i högre grad tro på moralisk vitalism.

Abstract [en]

Moral vitalism describes a belief in good and evil forces as independent, and thinking, agents that possess the capacity to influence people and events in the world. The concept of moral vitalism and the instruments to measure the degree of belief in said concept was introduced by Bain et al. (2015). Previous research suggests a potential correlation between the extent of belief in moral vitalism and spirituality (Bain et al., 2015) and the personality trait neuroticism (Lace, 2016).

The purpose of the present study was to examine these relations further.

The study used a quantitative design and had 51 participants. For the collection of data concerning personal values, the Portrait Values Questionnaire 40-items (Schwarts, 2012) was used and for the measuring of neuroticism, the Big Five Index (John & Srivastava, 1999) was used.

The results of the study point to, based on the present sample, a positive correlation between conservative values and the extent of belief in moral vitalism. Within the limitations of the study's sample size, this indicates that individuals who have conservative values tend to a greater extent to believe in moral vitalism.
