Architectural atmospheres : on the experience and politics of architecture by Gernot Böhme( )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing awareness of the atmospheric dimensions of architecture in contemporary architectural practice as well as in social and architectural theory.

The book is essential reading for architects, planners, and social theorists who take an interest in how we experience architecture and in how to improve architectural and urban design
Invasive technification : critical essays in the philosophy of technology by Gernot Böhme( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technology has extended its reach to the human body - not just in a literal sense, through implants, transplants and technological substitutes for biological organs, but in a more figurative sense too. Technological infrastructure and the instutions of a technified society today determine what perception is, how we communicate and what forms of social life are possible. A fundamental new conception of technology is therefore required. Technology can no longer be seen simply as a means of efficiently attaining pre-established ends. Rather, it needs to be considered as a total structure, somethi
Finalization in science : the social orientation of scientific progress by Gernot Böhme( Book )

15 editions published in 1983 in English and German and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays on Finalization in Science - The Social Orientation of Scientific Progress comprise a remarkable, problematic and controversial book. The authors propose a thesis about the social direction of scientific research which was the occasion of a lively and often bitter debate in Germany from 1976 to 1982. Their provocative thesis, briefly, is this: that modern science converges, historically, to the development of a number of 'closed theories', i. e. stable and relatively completed sciences, no longer to be improved by small changes but only by major changes in an entire theoretical structure. Further: that at such a stage of 'mature theory', the formerly viable norm of intra-scientific autonomy may appropriately be replaced by the social direction' of further scientific research (within such a 'mature' field) for socially relevant or, we may bluntly say, 'task-oriented' purposes. This is nothing less than a theory for the planning and social directing of science, under certain specific conditions. Understandably, it raised the sharp objections that such an approach would subordinate scientific inquiry as a free and untrammeled search for truth to the dictates of social relevance and dominant interests, even possibly to dictation and control for particularistic social and political interests
Ethics in context : the art of dealing with serious questions by Gernot Böhme( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and German and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gernot Bohme places philosophical ethics in the context of our individual and social lives. Arguing against the conception of ethics as a body of knowledge, Bohme defines morality as a matter of 'serious questions'. In the case of an individual, a serious question is one that determines that person's mode of living. In the case of society, a serious question is one that shapes our social norms." "In Ethics in Context, Bohme explores the key areas of moral living and moral discourse. He examines some of the urgent issues affecting society today, such as the moral implications of reproductive technology, man's mastery over nature the right of citizenship."--Jacket
The Knowledge society : the growing impact of scientific knowledge on social relations by Gernot Böhme( Book )

17 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Architektur und Atmosphäre by Gernot Böhme( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and German and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is fast-growing awareness of the role atmospheres play in architecture. Of equal interest to contemporary architectural practice as it is to architectural theory and aesthetics, this 'atmospheric turn' owes much to the work of the German philosopher Gernot Böhme. Atmospheric Architectures: The Aesthetics of Felt Spaces brings together Böhme's most seminal writings on the subject, through chapters selected from his classic books and influential articles, many of which have hitherto only been available in German. This is the only translated version authorised by Böhme himself, and is the first coherent collection deploying a consistent terminology. It is a work which will provide rich references and a theoretical framework for ongoing discussions about atmospheres and their relations to architectural and urban spaces. Chapters explore the philosophical and aesthetic dimensions of atmospheres, examining atmospheres in different media, whether acoustics, light and space, corporeal and ephemeral spaces, at stage sets and sacred spaces. Combining philosophy with architecture, design, landscape design, scenography and visual arts, the essays together provide a key to the concepts that motivate the work of some of the best contemporary architects, artists, and theorists: from Peter Zumthor, Herzog & de Meuron and Juhani Pallasmaa to Olafur Eliasson and James Turrell. The volume also includes a general introduction to the topic, including coverage of its history, development, areas of application and conceptual apparatus"--
Das Andere der Vernunft : zur Entwicklung von Rationalitätsstrukturen am Beispiel Kants by Hartmut Böhme( Book )

30 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in German and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coping with science by Gernot Böhme( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gernot Bohme, a distinguished and original contributor to critical theory's philosophy of science project, sets out the main theses of this program in an important volume for science studies scholars. Stressing that science is a necessary aspect of advanced societies, Bohme explores the most fundamental questions about its social, political, and cultural roles in modern society." "In light of the mixed blessings of technical society, Bohme questions whether we can continue to regard the institution of science as the top of a hierarchy of knowledge or as a neutral means of progress, let alone as a benign force for good. Science and its future are too important to be left to the scientists; society, Bohme insists, must take control of its scientific future."--Jacket

Ästhetischer Kapitalismus by Gernot Böhme( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenn ein neues Smartphone auf den Markt kommt, bilden sich frühmorgens Schlangen vor den palastartigen Shops. Das zeigt, dass es heute nicht nur um den Gebrauchswert einer Ware geht (dass man mit einem solchen Gerät telefonieren oder im Internet surfen kann), sondern auch um das, was Gernot Böhme als ihren »Inszenierungswert« bezeichnet. Die Inszenierung von Produkten und Lebensstilen ist ein zentrales Merkmal des ästhetischen Kapitalismus, dessen Erscheinungsformen Böhme nachspürt. Indem er sich mit der Ideologie des Wachstums, der Soundlandschaft in Shoppingcentern und dem Zusammenhang von Leistungsideologie und Konsum befasst, leistet er einen wichtigen Beitrag zu einer Rekonstruktion und Erweiterung der Theorie der Kulturindustrie auf den Bereich des Wirtschaftslebens. „Aus der von Adorno beschriebenen Kulturindustrie ist eine ästhetische Ökonomie geworden, der luxurierende Verschwendung und ein erotisch-perverses Verhältnis zur Eskalation von Konsum und Verbrauch immanent sind. Illustriert und entfaltet wird die These vom ästhetischen Kapitalismus durch Essays etwa über die Gläserne Manufaktur des VW-Konzerns in Dresden oder eine Frankfurter Shopping-Mall. Dass diese ästhetische Ökonomie der Verausgabung an der recht unschönen Ökologie knapper Ressourcen ihre Grenze findet bzw. finden wird, ist die stets mitklingende und hinreichend bekannte Begleitmusik der Essaysammlung, deren Reiz auch darin liegt, dass sie noch einmal ein Panorama linker Kapitalismus- und Kulturkritik von Adorno bis Baudrillard bietet“ (NZZ) - Gebrauchswert
