Abstract

In the present work it is next to the actual goal, i. the determination of the collective symbols, the determination of their hierarchy and semantization, and also a test of the method itself. What services does the method perform, how powerful is it when it comes to determining a complex and complicated object of culture in its form and function , In order to enable comparisons specific to individual cultures, the study was also carried out for Polish and German culture (see Fleischer 1995 and 1996). The entire analysis is in the context of the system-theoretical cultural theory established by the author in 1989 (Fleischer 1989 and 1994), whose examination represents the analysis. It is therefore a theory-based, system-theoretical-constructivist work, which is to examine the hypotheses and the predictions of the theory.

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.

Abstract

In the 'life' of technical objects and infrastructures repair and maintenance are central practices, both economically and culturally. This book foregrounds these activities, rarely examined until now, and looks into the forms of knowledge of different cultures of repair. In the process, the expertise and political ambitions of human actors receive as much consideration as the internal dynamics of the objects themselves. The articles focus on practices such as watch or computer repair, as well as on spaces such as the home, the hospital, the Repair Cafe, and the city of the 'Global South'. In addition, the book also investigates the extent to which repair and repair-friendly design can contribute to more sustainability.

Abstract


Popular entertainment and entertainment are considered essentially aesthetic phenomena. But is there a specific "aesthetics of the popular"? And how can mass arts affect the development of worldviews and identity orientations in a problematic way? Kaspar Maase focuses on the "mainstream" of mass arts and their everyday usage practices. In his study, he develops an understanding of popular culture as a network of practical interactions between people, texts, things, contexts, and situations, thus providing basic orientations for empirical research in a variety of disciplines.
