Die soziale Unrast unserer Tage hat sich eine eigene Sprache zu gelegt: Der revolutionare Jargon der Gegenwart gibt sich, wie dies kiirzlim M. Rainer Lepsius bemerkte, soziologisch oder wird doch als solmer empfunden. Es haufen sich die Soziologismen im Umgang mit gesellschaftlichen Fragen. Eine Fachsprame, die sich eigentlich nom nimt allgemein zu etablieren vermomte, wurde bereits zum Ritual. Es wird deshalb mit Begriffen hausiert, die eher verdunkeln als erhellen. Vollends unwissenschaftlich gibt sie sich in ihrer Paro lenhaftigkeit, zu der sie mi~braucht wurde. Parolen allenfalls eignen sich fiir politische Erweckung, nicht aber fUr wissenschaftliche Ent deckung. Mi~verstandnisse, gewollt propagierte und ungewollt provozierte, haben die moderne Sozialwissenschaft stets begleitet. Nur scheint, da~ heute die leise aber eindringlime Spracl1e der echten Wissenschaft im Jahrmarkt der Gefiihle und Aufwallungen unterzugehen droht. Die wissenschaftliche Arbeit leidet an unechten Fragen, mit denen besonders die Sozialwissenschaftler in durchaus repressiver Art iiber smiittet werden. Was also ist das Geschaft des Sozialwissenschaftlers? Das wissen schaftlime Bemiihen: Die Sume nach Erklarung. Er hat Soziales zu erkHiren. Indem er erklart, legt er alIen faIls den Grund zur Veran derung. Er kann und solI indes nicht verandern ohne Erklarung, sonst verHi~t er das Feld der Wissenschaft. Es ist zwar durchaus legitim, die Wissenschaft zu verlassen und etwa Politiker zu werden, nur ist von vorgetauschter Wissenschaftlichkeit zur falschen Zeit am falsmen Ort abzusehen

Coming to my senses : the autobiography of a sociologist by George Caspar Homans( Book )

16 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Those interested in the development of scientific theory and in the nature of academic life will appreciate this intellectual autobiography written by one of America's leading sociologists. Following his family tradition (The Education of Henry Adams was written by his great-uncle), George Caspar Homans describes how his ideas about the proper nature of theory in social science, both in form and content, have developed over time. The chief interest of the book lies in the description of this process. Homans' career has spanned many of the key periods of development in social research, and his own work has been central to the process. He was the first major sociologist to outline the sociological implications of psychologists' work on learning or behavior theory. His contributions to modern sociology have had a major impact on the study of small groups, the problem of theory and methods of theory construction, and the study of basic characteristics of social behavior. He is regarded as the father of social exchange theory. Homans considers academic and intellectual as well as nonacademic influences on his development: personalities of highly idiosyncratic individuals against whose views of culturalism, functionalism, and structuralism he reacted, discussions with colleagues, reading, as well as his ancestry, his childhood in Boston, his literary education and later social-life in Boston, and his experiences as a sea captain in the Navy in World War II. This is an absorbing book, both an autobiography and a history of the development of the social sciences in the post World War II era"--provided by publisher
