Most widely held works by K Knorr-Cetina
The practice turn in contemporary theory by Theodore R Schatzki( )
20 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The essays focus on three overall themes: the character and establishment of social order, the psychological basis of human activity, and contemporary posthumanist challenges. Philosophers such as Wittgenstein and Heidegger who have been influential in the shaping of practice theory are also discussed. In examining these themes and thinkers, the essays document how practice theory stands opposed to prominent modes of thought such as individualism, intellectualism, structuralism, systems theory, and many strains of humanism and poststructuralism."
The sociology of financial markets by K Knorr-Cetina( )
24 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Sociology of Financial Markets approaches financial markets from a sociological perspective. It seeks to provide an adequate sociological conceptualization of financial markets, and examine who the actors within them are, how they operate, within which networks, and under which cognitive and cultural assumptions. Patterns of trading, trading room coordination, cognition and emotions, and global interaction are studied to help us better understand how markets work and the types of reasoning underlying these institutions." "Addressing many important topics from a sociological perspective for the first time, this book will be key reading for academics, researchers, and advanced students of financial markets in Business, Management, Economics, Finance, and Sociology."--BOOK JACKET
The manufacture of knowledge : an essay on the constructivist and contextual nature of science by K Knorr-Cetina( Book )
47 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The anthropological approach is the central focus of this study. Laboratories are looked upon with the innocent eye of the traveller in exotic lands, and the societies found in these places are observed with the objective yet compassionate eye of the visitor from a quite other cultural milieu. There are many surprises that await us if we enter a laboratory in this frame of mind... This study is a realistic enterprise, an attempt to truly represent the social order of life in laboratories and institutes of research, just as they are. By bringing the philosophical issues to the surface as matter

The Oxford handbook of the sociology of finance by K Knorr-Cetina( Book )
16 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Recent years have seen a surge of interest in the workings of financial institutions and financial markets beyond the discipline of economics, which has been accelerated by the financial crisis of the early twenty-first century. The Oxford Handbook of the Sociology of Finance brings together twenty-nine chapters, written by scholars of international repute from Europe, North America, and Asia, to provide comprehensive coverage on a variety of topics related to the role of finance in a globalized world, and its historical development. Topics include global institutions of modern finance, types of actors involved in financial transactions and supporting technologies, mortgage markets, rating agencies, and the role of financial economics. Particular attention is given to financial crises, which are discussed in a special section, as well as to alternative forms of finance, including Islamic finance and the rise of China. The Handbook will be an indispensable tool for academics, researchers, and students of contemporary finance and economic sociology, and will serve as a reference point for the expanding international community of scholars researching these areas from a broadly-defined sociological perspective."--Publisher's website

in Undetermined and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing from the growing tradition of survey research approaches to the study of management practices in science, in research, and experimental development, this study embraced a multi-faceted evaluation of scientific productivity and effectiveness at the levels of both the individual scientists and the research unit. The questionnaires incorporated a wide variety of indicators for social- psychological and sociological factors such as satisfaction with the working environment, ratings of supervisory qualities, perceptions of influence patterns and the latitude in the choice of research themes. Additionally, the collection includes actual research output of the scientists individually and of the research unit as a whole, the professional experience of the research workers, the availability and quality of resources and the extent of communication within and between research units. The survey was conducted with five standardized questionnaires, translated into the national languages of the participating countries. The questionnaires were administered respectively to the head of the research unit, to the administrative officer, to staff scientists, to technical support staff, and to external evaluators
