The power of dialogue : critical hermeneutics after Gadamer and Foucault by Hans-Herbert Kögler( )

28 editions published between 1991 and 1999 in English and German and held by 2,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exemplifying a fruitful fusion of French and German approaches to social theory, The Power of Dialogue transforms Jurgen Habermas's version of critical theory into a new "critical hermeneutics" that builds on both Hans-Georg Gadamer's philosophical hermeneutics and Michel Foucault's studies of power and discourse. At the book's core is the question of how social power shapes and influences meaning and how the process of interpretation, while implicated in social forms of power, can nevertheless achieve reflective distance and a critique of power. It offers an original perspective on such issues as the impact of prejudice and cultural background on scientific interpretation, the need to understand others without assimilating their otherness, and the "truth" of interpretation
Empathy and agency : the problem of understanding in the human sciences by Hans-Herbert Kögler( )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in English and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In particular, the debate concerning simulation - whether agents interpret others by means of implicit theoretical assumptions, or whether they instead simulate their behavior by putting themselves in their shoes - has produced a wide set of important empirical and philosophical insights. This book takes up those insights and discusses their impact in the context of the most important paradigms in social methodology today."--Jacket

Enigma Agency Macht, Widerstand, Reflexivität by Alice Pechriggl( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long description: The discovery of the unconscious and the psychoanalytical term of (subconscious) acting have blown apart classic theories of action. Yet the term agency, which has become the basic term of post-disciplinary social research, makes it possible that resistance and subjectivity can still be maintained despite this death of the subject: It allows for the illumination of new aspects of doing and not doing, respectively acting, from the points of view of hermeneutics/pragmatism, group-analysis/ psychoanalysis and social studies. In this book, the authors suggest various agency concepts that establish the self socially situated between structures of power and control as well as creative and reflexive acting potentials

Role tension in the academy : a philosophical inquiry into faculty teaching and research by Nicolas Michaud( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation seeks to understand the conjunction of faculty roles as teachers and as researchers. This understanding is pursued through philosophical analysis. Discourse ethics, in particular, is used as a framework by which to best understand the roles played by faculty and if the roles of teacher and researcher are, in fact, commensurable. The purpose of the work is two-fold: 1) to develop a construct that may be used by future researchers to better understand the roles played by faculty, and 2) to suggest a best-construct that enables future researchers to propose how actual lived roles should be instantiated in the world. The dissertation reviews a series of university handbooks, professional association ethical guidelines, and philosophical arguments to establish how the roles of faculty are best understood. The investigation illuminates the tensions at the heart of faculty roles. This tension is not definitionally embedded in the roles of faculty as teacher and researcher. Rather, the tension emerges from the failure of institutions to fully actualize faculty roles as normatively grounded in human communicative interaction. As a result, the work suggests that in order to best resolve the cognitive dissonance that may be experienced as a result of role ambiguity, faculty should engage in a process of self-reflection and community dialectic in order to best determine how “faculty” can be actualized in a way that best benefits all stakeholders
The mechanics and fixed operations of human experience by James Di Netta( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract This paper will use the natural laws of the universe and amassed evidence to support a dynamic systems theory approach to explain the mechanics and fixed operations of the human experience taking place inside a causally determined universe without the possibility of free will. By reductionary methods, the universe and all its’ contents, including human agents, will be exemplified as complex dynamic systems. In so doing, the human experience is reduced to being comprised of information acting and reacting with other information existing in the universe, specifically ideas. Allowing ideas to take on a physical manifestation shows how the feedback of information directly results in the rise of human consciousness and the sensation of control and volition over actions. Thus, the methods and philosophies used in this paper will set out to rebut metaphysical libertarian views asserting alternative possibilities by way of Rollback Arguments and two other libertarian arguments raised by Alfred R. Mele. This paper aims to provide a description and deeper appreciation for the mechanics and fixed operations of the human experience in a universe where free will is nonexistent
