Community & society (Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft) by Ferdinand Tönnies( Book )

180 editions published between 1887 and 2012 in 9 languages and held by 2,886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ferdinand Tonnies's Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft (first published in 1887) is a classic of social and political theory in the later-modern period. It focuses on the universally endemic clash between small-scale, kinship and neighbourhood-based 'communities' and large-scale competitive market 'societies'. This theme is explored in all aspects of life - in political, economic, legal and family structures; in art, religion and culture; in constructions of 'selfhood' and 'personhood'; and in modes of cognition, language and human understanding. Tonnies is best known as one of the 'founding fathers' of modern sociology, but the present work lays greater emphasis on his relationship to European political thought and to developments in philosophy since the seventeeth-century scientific revolution, particularly the legacies of Hobbes and Kant. It can be read at many different levels: as a response to developments in Bismarckian Germany; as a more general critique of the culture of modernity; as a theoretical exercise in social, political and moral science; and as an unusual commentary on the inner character of 'democratic socialism'. This new translation and introduction make Tonnies's classic but difficult work accessible to English-speaking readers interested in social and political theory, intellectual and social history, language and cultural studies, and the history of economic thought."--Jacket
The elements of law, natural and politic by Thomas Hobbes( Book )

73 editions published between 1869 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book discusses Hobbs's tripos, in three discourses: The first, Humane nature, or the fundamental elements of policy, being a discovery of the faculties, acts and passions of the soul of man, from their original causes, according to such philosophical principles as are not commonly known, or asserted; The second, De corpore politico, or the elements of law, moral and politick, with discourses upon several heads, as of the law of nature, oaths and covenants, several kinds of governments, with the changes and revolutions of them; The third, Of liberty and necessity, wherein all controversie concerning predestination, election, free-will, grace, merits, reprobation, is fully decided and cleared"--Book
Custom; an essay on social codes by Ferdinand Tönnies( Book )

45 editions published between 1905 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Custom, Ferdinand Tönnies illustrates the relationship of custom to various aspects of culture, such as religion, gender, and family. Tönnies argues that all social norms are evolved from a basic sense of order, which is largely derived from customs. As such, custom refers to the ideal, and the desirable, and it mediates subjective aspects of social life. Tönnies makes observations in Custom that are just as true today as when they were written over a century ago. The pivotal idea in Tönnies work is the observation that custom, like its individual counterpart habit, has three distinct aspects: a fact--an actual way of conduct; a norm--a general rule of conduct; and a will. The analysis, extended into the field of collective behavior, helps to explain how far custom can be regarded as a manifestation of a common will. Custom is a classic contribution in the grand canon of law and society scholarship. Moreover, the volume introduces several key elements of Tönnies' work focusing on broader sociological thought, which benefits both the theoretical understanding of law as an object of social science reflection, as well as provides empirical insights into the roles of law in society.--Back cover

Behemoth: the history of the causes of the civil wars of England by Thomas Hobbes( Book )

32 editions published between 1889 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Behemoth is Thomas Hobbes's narrative of the English Civil Wars from the beginning of the Scottish revolution in 1637 to the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660. It is his only composition to address directly the history of the events which formed the context of his writings in Leviathan and elsewhere on sovereignty and the government of the Church. Although presented as an account of past events, it conceals a vigorous attack on the values of the religious and political establishment of Restoration England. This is the first fully scholarly edition of the work, and the first new edition of the text since 1889. Based on Hobbes's own presentation manuscript, it includes for the first time an accurate transcription of the passages which Hobbes had deleted in the text, and notes made by early readers."--Jacket
Kritik der öffentlichen meinung by Ferdinand Tönnies( Book )

23 editions published between 1922 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Am r. März 1907 wurde mir vom Herrn Verlagsbuchhändler und Schriftsteller O. HAERING - der angesehene Verlag ist seitdem auf die Firma J ULIUS SPRINGER übergegangen - der Antrag gestellt, ein Werk über die öffentliche Meinung zu verfassen. Herr HAERING machte mich auf das damals neue Buch von GABRIEL TARDE "L'opinion et la foule" aufmerksam; ihn habe Herr Professor GEORG JELLINEK darauf hingewiesen. Ich schätzte seit vielen Jahren T ARDE s Schriften hoch, wußte aber auch, daß unsere wissenschaftlichen Voraussetzungen, insbesondere die soziologischen, ziemlich weit voneinander entfernt waren; Herr HAERING selber sprach-die Ansicht aus, ein deutsches Buch über die öffentliche Meinung müsse anders gestaltet sein. Ich willigte ein, ein solches zu verfassen; den Gegenstand hatte ich schon in meiner Schrift "Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft" (1887) zu be rühren gewagt, indem ich den Begriff der öffentlichen Meinung in meine Lehre vom sozialen Willen aufnahm. Meine Zurüstungen zu dem Werke waren während der nächsten Jahre durch vermehrte akademische Tätigkeit, die der Statistik und Sozialökonomik galt, dann zumal durch den Weltkrieg und die Pflichten, die er auch dem Gelehrten auferlegte, gehemmt worden. Dennoch begann ich im Jahre I9I5, das Werk zu schreiben, und habe seitdem bis zum Herbst 1921 darin fortgefahren, wenngleich mehrmals durch größere und kleinere Arbeiten, die aus den Nöten der Zeit entsprangen, Unter brechungen eingetreten sind. Zu diesen Arbeiten rechne ich auch das kleine Buch "MARx' Leben und Lehre" (Jena I921)

Englische Weltpolitik in englischer Beleuchtung by Ferdinand Tönnies( Book )

16 editions published in 1915 in 3 languages and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dies Büchlein ist verfaßt worden um der Wahrheit willen. Die Zeugnisse der angesehensten englischen Autoren können nicht widerlegt werden. Sie werfen das beste Licht auf die gegen wärtige europäische Krisis. Das Büchlein ist nicht verfaßt worden, um den Nationalhaß zu schüren. Der Verfasser unterscheidet streng zwischen dem englischen Volke und der englischen Weltpolitik. Sogar die jeweiligen Leiter dieser Politik kennen zumeist Kräfte dieser Politik nur unzulänglich. die treibenden Das englische Volk besteht aus sehr verschieden gearteten Teilen. Neben den wirklichen Engländern sind Schotten, Walliser, Iren und die mannigfachen Mischungen dieser Volksstämme vor handen; dazu Abkömmlinge von Deutschen, Vlamen, Franzosen, Skandinaviern u. a. Außerdem sind Charakter und Denkungsart verschieden nach Tätigkeit oder Müßiggang, Beruf und Stand und sozialer Klasse; also überaus mannigfach und verwickelt. Freilich werden, noch mehr als in anderen Ländern, die oberen Schichten von den unteren bewundert und nachgeahmt. Die wirkliche Herrschaft in Großbritannien und Irland ruht seit Jahrhunderten in den Händen einer Oligarchie von Grund herren; diese läßt die Spitzen der Handels-und Geldaristokratie neben sich gedeihen und nimmt sie sogar in sich auf; das Ver hältnis zwischen beiden Herrschergruppen beruht auf dem still schweigenden Einverständnis, daß Englands Bestimmung ist, die Erde ZU beherrschen und auszubeuten zu beider Bereicherung. Seit 50 Jahren hat die eigentliche Volksmenge, besonders die Arbeiterschaft, auf diese ihre geborenen Herren durch Presse und parlamentarische Vertretung einen wachsenden Einfluß gewonnen in Sachen der inneren Politik. Die auswärtige Politik ist Domäne Vorwort
