English title: Life Politics in a Post-Traditional Society - An Empirical Study on Anthony Giddens' Theory of Modernisation
Author(s): Juhani Saari -
Type: Thesis / dissertation
In this study I examine some of the proposals made by Anthony Giddens in his publications concerning the advent of life politics in high modernity. Using linear regression analysis in the ESS Round 3 data I propose that the less traditional, the less anxious and the more capable of autonomy an individual is, the more likely he/she is to embrace the idea of life politics. The findings made from the linear model are consistent with Giddens' theory.
