Messages from Georg Simmel by Horst Jürgen Helle( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As founder of the humanist version of sociology, Simmel sent powerful messages that are identified and explained in this book: interpretation - things are often not what they appear to be; change- culture and society evolve over time; interaction - reality is socially constructed; alienation - people define the value of money without taking responsibility for this construction. Simmel sees humans defining objects in interaction as valuable or worthless, but then they refuse to acknowledge having anything to do with the process of value attribution. He is critical in politics as well; Simmel is concerned that socialism is treated as a political movement and not viewed as a potential form of social interaction."--Publisher's website
China : promise or threat? : a comparison of cultures by Horst Jürgen Helle( )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in English and French and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'China: Promise or Threat?' Helle compares the cultures of China and the West through both private and public spheres. For China, the private sphere of family life is well developed while behaviour in public relating to matters of government and the law is less reliable. In contrast, the West operates in reverse. The book's twelve chapters investigate the causes and effects of threats to the environment, military confrontations, religious differences, fundamentals of cultural history, and the countries' orientations for finding solutions to societal problems, all informed by the Confucian impulse to recapture the lost splendour of a past versus faith in progress toward a blessed future. The West has promoted individualism while China is locked in its kinship society

Essays on religion by Georg Simmel( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The noted German sociologist and philosopher Georg Simmel wrote a number of essays that deal directly with religion as a fundamental process in human life. These essays set forth Simmel's mature reflections on religion and its relation to modernity, personality, art, sociology, psychology, philosophy, and science. They also include his views on methods in the study of religion and his thoughts on achieving a broader perspective on religion. Originally published between 1898 and 1918, the last twenty years of Simmel's life, the essays are collected here in English for the first time." "The essays provide an excellent picture of the development of the characteristic doctrines of Simmel's thought as applied to religion, based on phenomenological analysis of human experience that emphasizes the subjective dimensions of life."--Jacket

Georg Simmel: Einführung in seine Theorie und Methode by Horst Jürgen Helle( )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georg Simmel is and will continue to be one of the most important authors for all the humanities. This is true because hardly anyone else has forseen the enormous changes in culture, politics, and in the social conditions in general, that would occur in the course of the 20th century like he did. It is also true because he discovered a new way of thinking, one which made this premonition of dramatic change possible. Georg Simmel ist und bleibt ein wichtiger Autor für den ganzen Bereich der Geisteswissenschaften. Nicht nur weil Simmel die gewaltigen kulturellen, politischen und allgemeinen sozialen Umwälzungen des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts wie kaum ein anderer vorausgesehen hat, sondern auch, weil er die Art zu denken entwickelt hat, ohne die eine Voraussicht nicht möglich war

Soziologie und Symbol : ein Beitrag zur Handlungstheorie und zur Theorie des sozialen Wandels by Horst Jürgen Helle( Book )

9 editions published in 1969 in German and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diese Habilitationsschrift erscheint als Buch zu einer Zeit, in der die Institution der Habilitation lebhaft diskutiert wird. Sie wurde geplant, geschrieben und der Fakultät vorgelegt, als diese Diskussion noch kaum begonnen hatte, also unter dem Eindruck, daß die Anfertigung einer Schrift dieser Art für den zukünftigen Hochschullehrer eine Pflicht sei. Mit dem Hinweis auf diese Verpflichtung konnte der Verfasser eine Reihe von Berechtigungen gewinnen, die ihm Anlaß zur Dankbarkeit geben: Die weitgehende Befreiung von den Alltagsaufgaben eines Wissenschaftlichen Assistenten während der letzten Jahre ist Heinz Kluth zu danken, dem Inhaber des Lehrstuhls, an dem der Verfasser seit 1961 gearbeitet hat. Für die einjährige Beurlaubung, die mir einen Aufenthalt in den USA ermöglichte, habe ich ebenfalls Heinz Kluth und auch der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg zu danken. Ein Forschungsstipendium zur wissen schaftlichen Arbeit am Department of Sociology der University of Chicago gewährte die Dachorganisation der gelehrten Gesellschaften der USA, der American Council of Learned Societies, New York

Theorie der symbolischen Interaktion ein Beitrag zum verstehenden Ansatz in Soziologie und Sozialpsychologie by Horst Jürgen Helle( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in German and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der vorliegende Band stellt die Entwicklung der Theorie der Symbolischen Interaktion (TSI) seit Herbert Blumer dar. Sein Werk wird jedoch nicht singulär betrachtet, sondern in den Werdegang des "verstehenden" Ansatzes der Soziologie eingeordnet. Der Autor skizziert zunächst die Grundlagen der Verstehenden Soziologie sowie den Weg der europäischen Soziologie zwischen Positivismus und Neukantianismus. Ausführlich behandelt er auch den direkten Bezugspunkt Herbert Blumers: die Arbeiten Georg Herbert Meads, des "geistigen Vaters" der TSI. Zum Abschluss werden die spezifischen Fragestellungen weiterer TSI-Vertreter wie Anselm Strauss, Tamotsu Shibutani und besonders Erving Goffman erörtert
