Die Metamorphose der Welt by Ulrich Beck( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als 1986 Risikogesellschaft erschien, machte das Ulrich Beck schlagartig berühmt. Der Soziologe wies nicht nur auf die Nebenfolgen der Industriemoderne hin, er betonte zugleich, dass die Welt sich auch dann permanent verändert, wenn wir meinen, einen vorübergehenden Zustand mit Institutionen und Konzepten einfrieren zu können. Mit beispielloser Neugier spürte Beck den Indizien des Wandels nach und öffnete uns mit der Lust an der terminologischen Innovation die Augen für Individualisierung, Globalisierung und die Transformation der Arbeitswelt. Am 1. Januar 2015 verstarb Ulrich Beck überraschend und viel zu früh. Bis zu seinem Tod arbeitete er an einem Buch, das beides ist: Summe und radikale Weiterführung seiner Theorie. Während es früher Fixpunkte gab, an denen wir erkennen konnten, was stabil blieb und was nicht, erleben wir heute eine allumfassende Verwandlung, die uns orientierungslos werden lässt. Die Metamorphose der Welt ist der Versuch, diese Globalisierung des Wandels zu verstehen und hochaktuelle Herausforderungen wie Erderwärmung und Migration auf den Begriff zu bringen.

In der mittleren Ebene Erzählungen aus den kapitalistischen Jahren by Frank Jakubzik( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alles beginnt mit einem ebenso allgegenwärtigen wie zumeist überhörten Stöhnen: Die Mitarbeiter in der "mittleren Ebene" des IT-Konzerns McWorthy leiden still unter den Zumutungen ihres Jobs. Nie können sie sicher sein, wo sie sich befinden und wohin sie unterwegs sind (oder sein sollten). Letztes Mittel der Selbstbewahrung: die Flucht ins Irrationale. Das Upgrade in die First Class wird zum Lebenszweck; die Opferung eines USB-Sticks zum Karriere-Boost, der eigene Unfalltod im geliebten Cabrio zum irgendwie erleichternden Wunschtraum. Mit allen möglichen Einbildungen und Fiktionen versuchen die Figuren dieser Erzählungen, sich das Arbeitsleben erträglich zu machen, oder überwinden sich zu neuen Verbiegungen und Unterwerfungen. Unausgesprochen steht hinter allem die Frage: Warum haltet ihr das alles aus?
Retrotopia by Zygmunt Bauman( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We have long since lost our faith in the idea that human beings could achieve human happiness in some future ideal state, a state that Thomas More, writing five centuries ago, tied to a topos, a fixed place, a land, an island, a sovereign state under a wise and benevolent ruler. But while we have lost our faith in utopias of all hues, the human aspiration that made this vision so compelling has not died. Instead it is re-emerging today as a vision focused not on the future but on the past, not on a future-to-be-created but on an abandoned and undead past that we could call retrotopia. The emergence of retrotopia is interwoven with the deepening gulf between power and politics that is a defining feature of our contemporary liquid modern world - the gulf between the ability to get things done and the capability of deciding what things need to be done, a capability once vested with the territorially sovereign state. This deepening gulf has rendered nation-states unable to deliver on their promises, giving rise to a widespread disenchantment with the idea that the future will improve the human condition and a mistrust in the ability of nation-states to make this happen. True to the utopian spirit, retrotopia derives its stimulus from the urge to rectify the failings of the present human condition - though now by resurrecting the failed and forgotten potentials of the past. Imagined aspects of the past, genuine or putative, serve as the main landmarks today in drawing the road-map to a better world. Having lost all faith in the idea of building an alternative society of the future, many turn instead to the grand ideas of the past, buried but not yet dead. Such is retrotopia, the contours of which are examined by Zygmunt Bauman in this sharp dissection of our contemporary romance with the past"--
The bourgeois : between history and literature by Franco Moretti( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The bourgeois ... Not so long ago, this notion seemed indispensable to social analysis; these days, one might go years without hearing it mentioned. Capitalism is more powerful than ever, but its human embodiment seems to have vanished. 'I am a member of the bourgeois class, feel myself to be such, and have been brought up on its opinions and ideals, ' wrote Max Weber, in 1895. Who could repeat these words today? Bourgeois 'opinions and ideals' -- what are they?" Thus begins Franco Moretti's study of the bourgeois in modern European literature -- a major new analysis of the once-dominant culture and its literary decline and fall. Moretti's gallery of individual portraits is entwined with the analysis of specific keywords -- "useful" and "earnest," "efficiency," "influence," "comfort," "roba"--And of the formal mutations of the medium of prose. From the "working master" of the opening chapter, through the seriousness of nineteenth-century novels, the conservative hegemony of Victorian Britain, the "national malformations" of the Southern and Eastern periphery, and the radical self-critique of Ibsen's twelve-play cycle, the book charts the vicissitudes of bourgeois culture, exploring the causes for its historical weakness, and for its current irrelevance
Die bezifferte Welt : wie die Logik der Finanzmärkte das Wissen bedroht ; Postdemokratie III by Colin Crouch( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in German and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Herbst 2014 wurde bekannt, der englische National Health Service wolle in Zukunft jedem Arzt 55 Pfund bezahlen, der bei einem Patienten Demenz diagnostiziert. Die Empörung war groß: Steigt so nicht das Risiko von Fehldiagnosen? Wissen Ärzte nicht auch ohne solche Anreize, was zu tun ist? Das Beispiel zeigt, dass die Logik des Neoliberalismus trotz der großen Krise weiterhin auf dem Vormarsch ist. Der damit verbundene Wandel betrifft alle Lebensbereiche: Schulen, Krankenhäuser und Polizei werden im Rahmen des großen Zahlenspiels umstrukturiert und dem Diktat der Kennziffern unterworfen; aus Studenten und Fahrgästen sollen Kunden werden, die agieren wie Rechenmaschinen. Auf dem Weg in die>>Informationsgesellschaft<<bleibt eine zentrale Ressource auf der Strecke: das Wissen selbst. Colin Crouch zeichnet nach, wie der Neoliberalismus alternative Formen des Wissens und der Expertise korrumpiert. Anders als seine Apologeten behaupten, ist der Markt keine perfekte Wissensmaschine, die aus anonymen Entscheidungen Transparenz herbeizaubert, im Gegenteil: Lässt man die Logik der Finanzmärkte ungehindert operieren, kann sie das Immunsystem unserer Gesellschaften zerstören
Race, empire, and the idea of human development by Thomas McCarthy( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Offering an unusual perspective on the past and present of our globalizing world, this book will appeal to scholars and advanced students of philosophy, political theory, the history of ideas, racial and ethnic studies, social theory, and cultural studies."--Jacket

The comfort of things by Daniel Miller( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in German and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eugenik und andere Übel by G. K Chesterton( )

Gemeinschaften : auf der Suche nach Sicherheit in einer bedrohlichen Welt by Zygmunt Bauman( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sicherheit und Freiheit zählen zu den Grundbedürfnissen des Menschen. Gemeinschaft - schon das Wort konnotiert Wärme. Sie bietet Schutz, beschneidet aber zugleich unsere Individualität und unsere Freiheit. Man muß immer wieder versuchen, diese beiden gleichermaßen kostbaren Werte auszubalancieren, störungsfrei in Einklang kommen sie nie. In Gemeinschaften greift Zygmunt Bauman die Möglichkeiten und Gefahren auf, die sich aus diesem Dilemma ergeben. Mit essayistischer Brillanz diskutiert er einen Begriff, der in den Debatten über die Zukunft von Umwelt und Gesellschaft eine zentrale Stellung einnimmt
The rights of others : aliens, residents and citizens by Seyla Benhabib( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Rights of Others examines the boundaries of political community by focusing on political membership - the principles and practices for incorporating aliens and strangers, immigrants and newcomers, refugees and asylum seekers, into existing polities. Boundaries define some as members, others as aliens. But when state sovereignty is becoming frayed, and national citizenship is unraveling, definitions of political membership become much less clear. In her Seeley Lectures, political theorist Seyla Benhabib makes a powerful plea, echoing Immanuel Kant, for moral universalism and cosmopolitan federalism. She advocates not open but porous boundaries, recognizing not only the admittance rights of refugees and asylum seekers, but also the regulatory rights of democracies. The Rights of Others is an intervention in contemporary political theory, of interest to students and specialists in politics, law, philosophy, and international relations."--Jacket

The fateful question of culture by Geoffrey H Hartman( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in German and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What defines "culture wars"? Can art and literature restore and reconnect us to the world? Or does culture, in the guise of politics, divide and separate us? What is finally at stake in the "culture wars"? In this book Geoffrey H. Hartman explores the varied meanings of culture in a fractured postmodern world. Engaging a wide range of literature and criticism, Hartman considers culture's many uses, generating the subtle yet immense hope that flows from a great artist such as Wordsworth but also the terrible capacity to destroy, as evidenced by the cultural politics of Nazi Germany. Hartman calls for the restoration of literature to its place as the focus of thinking about culture and for the renewal of aesthetic education to help ensure the balance between art, culture, and politics."--Jacket
Daten, Drohnen, Disziplin : ein Gespräch über flüchtige Überwachung by David Lyon( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Thema Überwachung ist allgegenwärtig: Wir werden in der U-Bahn gefilmt, machen Privates auf Facebook öffentlich, Minidrohnen werden bald so billig sein, dass Neugierige ihre Nachbarn ausspionieren können. All das ist nicht nur für die Politik eine Herausforderung, sondern auch für die Soziologie. In dem in diesem Band dokumentierten Gespräch unternehmen Zygmunt Bauman und David Lyon, der Begründer der "Surveillance Studies", den Versuch, Foucaults Idee des Panoptikums und Deleuze' Überlegungen zur Kontrollgesellschaft auf den neuesten Stand der Technik zu bringen
The global age : state and society beyond modernity by Martin Albrow( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many authors who discuss the idea of globalization see it as continuing pre-established paths of development of modern societies. Post-modernist writers, by contrast, have lost sight of the importance of historical narrative altogether. Martin Albrow argues that neither group is able to recognize the new era which stares us in the face. A history of the present needs an explicit epochal theory to understand the transition to the Global Age. When globality displaces modernity there is a general decentering of state, government, economy, culture, and community. Albrow calls for a recasti
