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 hard work soziologischen Denkens wagen wollen.
