Symbolic interactionism; perspective and method by Herbert Blumer( Book )

49 editions published between 1969 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a collection of articles dealing with the point of view of symbolic interactionism and with the topic of methodology in the discipline of sociology. It is written by the leading figure in the school of symbolic interactionism, and presents what might be regarded as the most authoritative statement of its point of view, outlining its fundamental premises and sketching their implications for sociological study. Blumer states that symbolic interactionism rests on three premises: that human beings act toward things on the basis of the meanings the things have for them; that the meaning of such things derives from the social interaction one has with one's fellows; and that these meanings are handled in, and modified through, an interpretive process." -- From the jacket

Industrialization as an agent of social change : a critical analysis by Herbert Blumer( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 2018 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Herbert Blumer wrote continuously and voluminously, and consequently left a vast array of unpublished work at the time of his death in 1987. This posthumously published volume testifies further to his perceptive analysis of large-scale social organizations and elegant application of symbolic interactionist principles. Blumer's focus on the processual nature of social life and on the significance of the communicative interpretation of social contexts is manifest in his theory of industrialization and social change. His theory entails three major points: industrialization must be seen in processual terms, and the industrialization process is different for different historical periods; the consequences of industrialization are a function of the interpretive nature of human action and resembles a neutral framework within which groups interpret the meaning of industrial relations, and the industrial sector must be viewed in terms of power relations; industrial societies contain inherently conflicting interests. The editors' introductory essay outlines Blumer's metatheoretical stance (symbolic interactionism) and its emphasis on the adjustive character of social life. It places Blumer's theory in the context of contemporary macro theory, including world systems theory, resource dependence theory, and modernization theory."--Provided by publisher

Symbolischer Interaktionismus : Aufsätze zu einer Wissenschaft der Interpretation by Herbert Blumer( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Herbert Blumer gehört als Begründer und Hauptvertreter des symbolischen Interaktionismus zu den einflussreichsten Sozialwissenschaftlern des 20. Jahrhunderts. Aufgrund ihres pointierten Stils sind seine Schriften Glanzstücke interpretativer Sozialwissenschaft, in denen er sich unermüdlich gegen Versuche ausspricht, Abstraktionen zu reifizieren. Stattdessen müsse man sich an jenen Prozessen und Praktiken orientieren, in denen sozialen Bedeutungen ausgehandelt werden.>>Intime Bekanntschaft<<statt blindes Vertrauen auf Statistiken und Experimente lautet seine Losung, die an Aktualität nichts verloren hat
