Abstract

The work of Pierre Rosanvallon has increasingly found itself at the center of debates in democratic and political theory – although only few of his numerous monographs have thus far been translated from French. This interdisciplinary volume, the first comprehensive collection on his political thought in English, seeks to lay the groundwork for the study of this eminent political thinker and historian. Following a hitherto untranslated opening essay by Rosanvallon, the chapters – written from a variety of disciplinary perspectives including political theory, political science, philosophy, and history – cover a wide range of topics from the history of democracy to sovereignty, populism, and the function of the press in liberal democratic regimes.&#xD;

Abstract

Scholars have long seen trust as a foundational social good. We therefore have ample studies on building trust in free markets, on cultivating trust in the state, and on rebuilding trust through civil society. The contributors to this volume, instead, take a step back. They ask: Can mistrust ever be more than the flip side of trust, more than the sign of an absence or failure? By looking ethnographically at what a variety of actors actually do when they express mistrust, this volume offers a richly empirical trove of the social life of mistrust across a range of settings.

Abstract

Die kontroversen Diskussionen um die politische Entwicklung in Russland seit der Machtübernahme durch Wladimir Putin im Jahr 2000 reißen nicht ab. Der Abbau demokratischer Rechte, wirtschaftliches Wachstum und Stabilität werden als Kennzeichen der Putin'schen Herrschaft hervorgehoben. Philipp Casula fokussiert in seiner Analyse hingegen auf die Genese des politischen Diskurses im Zeitraum 2000-2008 und erarbeitet dessen hegemoniale und populistische Tendenzen mithilfe der Ansätze von Ernesto Laclau. Die Studie wirft ein neues Licht auf die russische politische Entwicklung und produziert Erklärungen für die Regime-Stabilität Russlands unter Putin jenseits üblicher transformationstheoretischer Modelle.

Abstract

"About projections" gives insights into world maps, their ways of representation and the associated worldviews. On the one hand, the projection is presented as an ideal projection in the sense of a worldview that describes prevailing mental images, values, order principles, ways of thinking or explanatory models of the world. On the other hand, the focus is on the geometric projection that underlies world maps: every world map faces the difficulty of displaying the spherical surface in a two-dimensional plane. In a reconstruction various paradigmatic worldviews are shown on the basis of world maps. In a deconstruction, conventional ones are contrasted by alternative world maps. The wide variety of possible world maps shows that world maps do not represent a status quo, but are merely a subjective interpretation of the world at a given time, which remain subject to constant upheavals.&#xD;

Abstract

House of Cards, Borgen und Co. – seit einiger Zeit boomen Fernsehserien, die explizit den politischen Betrieb fokussieren. Diese erreichen nicht nur ein akademisches Nischenpublikum, sondern erzielen insgesamt hohe Zuschauerquoten. Die Beiträge des Bandes analysieren, wie der Gegenstand Politik in den Serien aufgegriffen und als Material für ihre auf Unterhaltung ausgerichteten Erzählungen aufgearbeitet wird. Über die Auseinandersetzung mit popkulturellen Produkten zeigen sie, wie politische Bilder in populären Filmen und Serien konstruiert und reproduziert werden und wie diese sich auf Wahrnehmungen und Vorstellungen von Politik auswirken. Das Interesse gilt dabei den konstruierten Bildern von Politik im Allgemeinen, aber auch den sich darin äußernden nationalen Besonderheiten.

Abstract

Sustainability has become a leading principle of social change that combines different objectives – be it green capitalism based on ecological modernization or a socio-ecological transformation that could ring in a post-capitalist era. The social dimensions of sustainability as well as the paradoxes relating to a sustainable development in global capitalism are examined in this programmatic text by Sighard Neckel and his research team in Hamburg. Basic sociological perspectives of sustainability are the subject, as are prospects of concrete fields of a critical-reflexive social research on the social conflicts centering around sustainability.
