Daneben entwickelt sich in den letzten Jahren eine soziologische Theorierichtung, die eng am Begriff der Praxis ausgerichtet ist und vor allem in ihrer postkolonialen Ausformung universellen Gesellschaftsdiagnosen höchst skeptisch gegenübersteht. Diese Ansätze kommen zu Neudefinitionen soziologischer Grundbegriffe, indem sie etwa die Rolle der menschlichen Körper und der materialen Dinge bei der Entstehung und Reproduktion von Praktiken und Praxisformen zentral thematisieren. Die praxistheoretische Perspektive verspricht, so die Ausgangshypothese des Bandes, nicht nur hinsichtlich der Thematisierung des Religiösen fruchtbare Anknüpfungspunkte für die Religionssoziologie zu liefern, sondern zeigt außerdem, wie sich die Axiome des klassischen Modernitätsdiskurses praxistheoretisch revidieren oder möglicherweise neu fassen lassen.

Download E-books Soziologie: Zehn einführende Vorlesungen (German Edition) PDF

By Armin Nassehi

Dieses Buch soll anders sein. Es führt in den soziologischen Blick und in die wichtigsten soziologischen Grundbegriffe ein, ohne aber in lexikalischer Genauigkeit, definitorischer Schärfe und simulierter Neutralität soziologische Sätze in Stein zu meißeln. Eher von leichter Hand wird versucht, der Soziologie und der Erarbeitung ihres spezifischen Blicks über die Schulter zu schauen. Das Buch erzählt eine Geschichte, die Geschichte von Herrn A, einem Banker, der in Liebesdingen und in seinem Beruf Einiges erlebt. An dieser Geschichte wird der soziologische Blick praktisch, gewissermaßen empirisch, eher kurzweilig eingeübt. Das Buch richtet sich nicht nur an Studierende der Soziologie, sondern auch an all jene, die einen Blick in ein exertions soziologischen Denkens wagen wollen.
