Abstract

The term "social capital" has become a buzzword with a huge, already diffuse spectrum of application. This should give reason for conceptual and theoretical vigilance. What – in concrete - is the object when "social capital" is mentioned? This question has not been systematically dealt with and even less responsed in a satisfactory degree, although there are many contributions to the discussion of the term. The problem is labelled in the social sciences, but has not been resolved in the context of the specific social-scientific framework. This book takes the neglected metalinguistic perspective. Thus it advances the scientific maturity of the "social capital" debate and contributes to the establishment of a well-founded system in social science terms. It brings up social capital by combining an epistemological and ontological analysis and thus finally develops clarification of the concept.

Abstract

In the German speaking world, questions concerning the voice or speaker of lyrical poems are often oversimplified through recourse to the disputed concept of “the lyrical I.” This volume addresses questions surrounding the expressive agent in lyric poems and thus contributes to the controversial debate about adequate forms for conceptualizing lyric poetry at the intersection between philological traditions and practices specific to lyric poetry.

Abstract

What relevance does gender have as a structuring and structured characteristic within the present circumstances? The authors - dissatisfied with the scientific state of the art - animate this discussion and lead it into new regions of thought. The concept of structure refers to social relations and institutions and focuses on inequalities, always in relation to social and institutional (gender) relations. To this end, the concept of the subject refers to actions and thus focuses more on individuals. The essential question here is: What relevance does gender have as a structuring and structured characteristic within current social conditions, structures and norms? In addition to theoretical contributions to already established subject- and structure-theoretical considerations, other authors concentrate on research-practical turns of the theoretical concepts. This volume aims to capture a dialectical interweaving of individual and social structuring processes in relation to gender.

Abstract

This somewhat unconventional “introduction to rhetoric” does not engage in a historical or systematic survey. Rather, it explores the specific substantive concern of rhetoric: how does persuasive speech help to achieve cooperation based on understanding? In light of this question, the author describes the current status of rhetoric as a modern principle for establishing validity that is based on persuasion.

Abstract

European integration represents a historically unprecedented and new form of a continent's peaceful unification. Therefore, historiography needs innovative theoretical concepts to illustrate this process appropriately; at the present moment, however, integration history is only characterized by an extensive 'theoretical deficit'. The book project 'Acht Geschichten über die Integrationsgeschichte. Zur Grundlegung der Geschichte der europäischen Integration als ein episodisches historiographisches Erzählen' critically adopts this opinion and illuminates the theoretical principles of integration historiography. A proposal regarding the theoretical principles of unification historiography is compiled from an interdisciplinary perspective. The concept of the episodic historiographic narrative (Peter Pichler) understands the unification of Europe as a comprehensive cooperation and transformation process in which various historic strands (e.g. political, economic, cultural, social, legal, religious, etc.) interlink with each other. Therefore it would be most sensible to show their totality as an episodic historiographic network within the historiographic context. This theoretical proposal shall be provided for research as a new meta-perspective and methodical tool.In a first step, the hitherto existing research on integration history is critically reviewed. Furthermore, its discourse will be analysed. Particular attention is paid to include Eastern and Southern European as well as Turkish perspectives. Their synopsis shows the interplay between the Eastern and Southern European 'transition'-narrative and the Turkish perspective on the integration process as the driving force of the debate. Furthermore, 'post-modern' perspectives on integration history represent an important feature of the discourse's acceleration and renewal. The first step ends with the contributors being able to give a first innovative impulse to the discursive renewal of research concerning integration history; the neoterised term 'transnarrative competence' allows for correlation between 'transition'-narrative and Turkish perspectives on integration. In a second step, those theoretical features from recent developments in integration and historical theory are isolated that can contribute to a perspective renewal of research. The concept of the episodic historiographic narrative proposes an interdisciplinary theory based on those elements of political, social, legal and cultural sciences. The analytical narrative mindset of each element is determined and thus reconstructed as one episodic plot line, one episode of European integration history. The net of episodes eventually constitutes the proposed theory of an episodic historiographic narrative. Thus, the concept of the episodic historiographic narrative does not only enable histrorians to overcome the deficit in the theory of integration historiography but also enters new academic ground by uniting interdisciplinary elements to an episodic network.

Abstract

This book presents the development and present status of adaptions of chaos theory for literary studies. Furthermore the integration of these methodological approaches into a discipline that is oriented towards cultural studies is demonstrated. The publication consists of four parts. The first part of the work deals with the issues created through questions posed by historical philosophy and historiography. It discusses how reflections on linear time, as well as on the description and explanation of sequences, circularity and synchronicities lead to an increased complexity in the semanticts of time in the notion of the objects analized. It also discusses the integration of discourses from other disciplines into literary history. It is demonstrated that both aspects - increased complexity and supplementary discourses - are highly influential in hermeneutical literary studies.The second part deals with changes in the notion of time in the modern and so-called post-modern era. It focuses especially on non-linearity, the increasing importance of historical time in the natural sciences and on the effect of this tendency on the analysis of highly complex structures outside of the natural sciences. In the third part of the publication concrete examples of the adaption of chaos theory for literary studies are examined - especially their epistemological interest, their position within the framework of the discipline and their interdisciplinary potential. This part elucidates the potential of focusing on the literary text and its particularities under the premises of chaos theory and how such an interdisciplinary approach helps to bridge the cap between the natural sciences and the humanities.In the final part of the publication the social and cultural relevance of historical knowledge as a frame of reference in times of increasing (temporal and social) complexity is examined. With reference to the explanatory power of hermeneutical procedures "chaostheoretical literary studies" are proposed as a working hypothesis. The approach is intended as a model which can be integrated into cultural analysis and not provides descriptions and explanations for highly complex literary texts, hypertexts and virtual realities, but also regards scientific and technical production and distribution of knowledge as an important part of culture and thus integrates it into its analysis.

Abstract

Gemeinschaft ist wieder Thema. Das gilt gerade auch in den Sozialwissenschaften. Die nach wie vor ungeklärte Frage lautet jedoch: Warum? Dieses Buch bietet eine bisher ausstehende systematische Erklärung zur neuen Gemeinschaftsdiskussion. Grundthese dabei ist, dass die von Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern geführte Debatte weniger als wissenschaftliches denn als ideologisches Phänomen zu sehen ist, welches insbesondere aus Perspektive des Wohlfahrtssystems eine wichtige Funktion erfüllt und beobachtbar wird, wenn man die neue Argumentation um Gemeinschaft in Relation zur bisher dominierenden fordistisch-keynesianischen Wohlfahrtsstaatsdoktrin setzt.

Abstract

Das bisherige institutionell arrangierte Verhältnis von Sicherheit und Risiko ist angesichts der massiven Veränderungen der inneren, der sozialen und der äußeren Sicherheit in der Krise. Moderne Gesellschaften stehen vor der Frage, wie und in welchen Formen dieses Verhältnis neu bestimmt und auf soziale, rechtliche und politische Weise neu arrangiert werden kann. Der Fokus dieses Bandes zielt auf die Evaluierung politischer, sozialer und technischer Umgangsweisen mit Risiko sowie auf die Analyse der gesellschaftlichen Imaginationen, die mit diesen unweigerlich verknüpft sind.

Abstract

Die umfassende gesellschaftspolitische Problematik von Sicherheit und Risiko in den globalisierten westlichen Gesellschaften ist nicht erst seit "9/11" oder der aktuellen Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise virulent. Dieser Band versammelt die wichtigsten Stimmen der sozial-, kultur- und humanwissenschaftlichen Disziplinen, um nicht nur grundlegend in die Thematik einzuführen, sondern auch, um Antworten zu geben auf die Frage nach dem rasanten Wandel unseres Verständnisses von Gefahr, Bedrohung, Unsicherheit und riskantem Verhalten.
