Sociology throws new light on the world we think we know. It can challenge long-held assumptions and it offers a spectrum of possibilities to extend our understandings of everyday life, politics, culture and relationships. It opens our eyes to alternatives for tackling social problems and connects every one of us to each other. Being Sociological is an entertaining, inspiring, intelligent introduction to this vast and illuminating subject. Each chapter follows a clear path through a core sociological process – from working and consuming to believing and communicating. With intriguing examples, clear definitions of essential jargon and stimulating theoretical explanation, the book focuses on the most important issues and ideas that inform sociology. The new edition: • Expands the international range of examples and voices represented • Draws on expertise of leading academic contributors from across seven countries • Includes even more coverage of hot topics in new chapters on globalization and the environment • Uses a clear structure throughout each chapter to ease the reading experience • Aids understanding and learning with new features, including discussion points, annotated suggestions for further reading, an expanded glossary, and enhanced web support at http://www.palgrave.com/sociology/matthewman2e. This is the resource all students new to the subject need in order to start their sociological journey with understanding, knowledge, imagination and confidence.

If today students of social theory read Jurgen Habermas, Michel Foucault and Anthony Giddens, then proper regard to the question of culture means that they should also read Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall and Slavoj Zizek. The Routledge Handbook of Social and Cultural Theory offers a concise, comprehensive overview of the convergences and divergences of social and cultural theory, and in so doing offers a novel agenda for social and cultural research in the twenty-first century. This Handbook, edited by Anthony Elliott, develops a powerful argument for bringing together social and cultural theory more systematically than ever before. Key social and cultural theories, ranging from classical approaches to postmodern, psychoanalytic and post-feminist approaches, are drawn together and critically appraised. There are substantive chapters looking at – among others – structuralism and post-structuralism, critical theory, network analysis, feminist cultural thought, cultural theory and cultural sociology. Throughout the Handbook there is a strong emphasis on interdisciplinarity, with chapters drawing from research in sociology, cultural studies, psychology, politics, anthropology, women’s studies, literature and history. Written in a clear and direct style, this Handbook will appeal to a wide undergraduate and postgraduate audience across the social sciences and humanities.

An essential volume for anyone interested in the history of sociology, the development of sociological theory, or the history of women in the profession, this well-researched, compellingly argued book makes the case for the active and significant presence of women in the creation of sociology and social theory in its founding and classic periods. Further, Lengermann and Niebrugge explain how the women came to be erased from the history of sociology and identify the political and intellectual currents that now make their recovery both possible and important. The volume focuses on 15 women in eight chapters. Each chapter begins with a biographical sketch situating each thinkers ideas in a historical, social, and cultural context. Next, the authors analyze the womans theory, summarizing its underlying assumptions, explicating its major themes, and introducing key vocabulary. The chapter concludes with excerpts from the original texts of the women founders. All the theories discussed in this text share a moral commitment to the idea that sociology should and could work for the alleviation of socially produced human pain. The ethical duty of the sociologist is to seek sound scientific knowledge, to refuse to make the knowledge an end in itself, to speak for the disempowered, to advocate social reform, and to never forget that the appropriate relationship between researcher and subject is one of mutuality.

This is the first textbook for sociological theory that is modeled after the texts routinely available for introductory sociology courses. It is concise (although it covers a lot of ground), written in a highly accessible fashion, and includes much of the pedagogy that one expects to find in an introductory text. The book stems from the need of some instructors for a short text to be used in one-semester courses in contemporary sociological theory, or sociological theory more generally. At least some students (and their instructors) have found other texts too long, too dense and too complex. This volume is not only short, but comparatively light (but not lightweight) and less technical.

"This Ph.D. dissertation is framed as a historical comparative analysis of the sociology profession. The focus will be put on the emergence and the development of the profession and its organizational arenas. The analysis will present data from three sociology fields - Sweden, Britain and the US - as these fields relate to the three models of professionalization that have been outlines by the sociology of the professions. Performing a comparative analysis of an individual profession will help reveal similarities and differences between the cases being considered. The aim of the dissertation is twofold. First, it seeks to add to theorizing about the relationship between gender and professions by exploring the ways in which the emergence, organization and knowledge production of an academic profession has interrelated with gender in the historical development of sociology as a profession. Contents include: Introduction, Sociology of the professions through gender lens, the Professional project, Gendering professional associations, Patterns of closure in academic departments, Gender and the sociological canon, Homo sociologicus: subjective reminiscences, Conclusions."

Zu Recht gilt Max Weber (1864–1920) heute international als einer der einflussreichsten Denker des 20. Jahrhunderts. Seine Werke zählen in den Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften zu den Schlüsseltexten der wissenschaftlichen Ausbildung. Dirk Kaesler zeichnet knapp und anschaulich die entscheidenden Stationen seines Lebens und Wirkens nach und macht deutlich, wie eng sowohl die Themen der wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten Webers als auch deren Ergebnisse mit zeitgenössischen und familienbiographischen Zusammenhängen verflochten sind.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Methodologie und Methoden, Note: Leistungsnachweis, Universität Duisburg-Essen (FB Soziologie), Veranstaltung: Einführung in die Soziologie, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Max Weber wird am 21. April 1864 in Erfurt geboren, sein Vater war ein nationalliberaler Politiker und später Abgeordneter. Diese nationalliberale Einstellung im Elternhaus prägte Weber entscheidend für sein späteres Leben. Weber studierte Jura, Nationalökonomie, Philosophie und Geschichte in verschiedenen Städten, seine Studienzeit wurde aber durch den Wehrdienst unterbrochen. Er promovierte mit Auszeichnung in Jura und die Habilitation folgte drei Jahre später in römischem Recht und Handelsrecht. Im Alter von 28 Jahren veröffentlicht Weber im Auftrag des Vereins für Sozialpolitik die Studie „Die Verhältnisse der Landarbeiter im ostelbischen Deutschland“, diese Schrift bestätigte seinen wissenschaftlichen Ruf. In dieser Schrift fordert Weber die Schließung der deutschen Grenzen gegen das Eindringen polnischer Arbeiter, da er der Meinung war, dass gesunde Bevölkerungsverhältnisse eine grundlegende Voraussetzung für eine jede Volkswirtschaft sind.1 Im Jahre 1893 heiratete Weber Marianne Schnitger, die spätere Frauenrechtlerin, eine der Hauptfiguren der Frauenbewegung. Ein Jahr später wird er zum Professor der Nationalökonomie an der Universität Freiburg/Breisgau berufen, in seiner dortigen Antrittsvorlesung legte er den Grundstein für sein später entwickeltes Werturteilsfreiheitpostulat der Wissenschaften. 1897 übernimmt Weber den Lehrstuhl für Nationalökonomie an der Heidelberger Universität, diesen muß er jedoch wegen einer Erkrankung aufgeben, insgesamt sieben Jahre kann er nur eingeschränkt arbeiten, in dieser Zeit unternimmt er mehrere Reisen durch Europa und Amerika. Erst nach dieser Zeit publiziert Weber wieder, er veröffentlicht unter anderem die Schriften „Die `Objektivität ́ sozialwissenschaftlicher und sozialpolitischer Erkenntnis“ sowie „Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus“. In der erstgenannten Schrift stellt Weber dar, dass es nicht Aufgabe einer Erfahrungswissenschaft sei, bindende Normen und Ideale zu ermitteln. In letzterer zeigt er auf wie die Religion das wirtschaftliche Verhalten prägt, die Protestanten haben laut Weber eher [...]

Was ist Theorie und welche Bedeutung haben Ideologien und Werturteile für sie? Wie könnte ein kultur- und sozialwissenschaftlicher Theoriebegriff aussehen? Die Tatsache, dass eine zweite Auflage des vorliegenden Werks zustande kam, lässt das Bedürfnis nach einer konkreten Beantwortung der Frage erkennen. Das Buch antwortet auf die oben genannten Fragen, indem es zunächst klärt, wie sich Theorien in den verschiedenen Wissenschaftsbereichen definieren lassen. Anschließend werden die wichtigsten Theoriedebatten des 20. Jahrhunderts dargestellt, aber auch kritisch bewertet. Am Schluss des Bandes steht die Zusammenführung der unterschiedlichen Ansätze im Konzept einer Dialogischen Theorie, die den Besonderheiten der Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften Rechnung trägt.
