Abstract
This study examines the meaning of the concept “political correctness”, which in a period of surprisingly short time has undergone great changes.

This study examines the meaning of the concept “political correctness”, which in a period of surprisingly short time has undergone great changes. Political correctness has for a long time been a noted and debated concept, which today has generated in a varied area of use, in general based on a way to label opinions of a debating person. The dissection of the concept is examined by a thorough analysis of primary material consisting of debate articles with the intention of identifying similarities and variation. The analysis is performed through narrative method and two different theoretical outsets; postcolonial theory and Lukes’ theory of power. Through these methods the study is allowed to gather recurring patterns and compile an evolved comprehension of the concept of political correctness.
Thoroughly the analysis discusses what effects a central concept has in terms of indirect influences on the general debate. This paper presents a background in order to describe the purpose of the general discussion and conclusion in the paper.
The analysis leads to the conclusion of an awareness of the forthgoing complexity of political correctness, which generates insecurity in the public debate. After studying the material it is clear that it exists a complex of problems concerning the finding of a definition of the term. (Less)
