Max Weber by Gregor Fitzi( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungMax Weber (1864? 1920) zählt zu den Mitbegründern der deutschen Soziologie und ist nach wie vor einer der einflussreichsten Denker des 20. Jahrhunderts. Gregor Fitzi stellt Webers Grundthesen vor: die Methodologie der Sozialwissenschaft, die Theorien der Moderne und des abendländischen Rationalismus sowie Webers Studien zur Wirtschaftsgeschichte. Darüber hinaus zeigt er Max Weber als Mann der Politik und der Öffentlichkeit und behandelt die Rezeption seiner Arbeiten in den Sozialwissenschaften. Viele aktuelle Auseinandersetzungen mit Weber belegen die bis heute ungebrochene A
Max Webers politisches Denken by Gregor Fitzi( )

10 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auf der Lehrerfahrung des Autors basierend, ist der Band so konzipiert, dass er die schwierige Lektüre von Webers "Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft" begleiten und erleichtern soll. Den Studenten kann das Buch somit als Einführung in das zentrale soziologische Werk Max Webers dienen. Mit dieser Zielsetzung schließt der Band eine Lücke in der Fachliteratur, da die Sekundärliteratur über Max Webers Werk zwar Weiterführung und anspruchsvolle Exegese bietet, jedoch nur bedingt zur Einführung taugt
The challenge of modernity : Simmel's sociological theory by Gregor Fitzi( )

15 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The complete collected works of Georg Simmel are now available. Yet, the standing of Simmel's sociological theory is still a subject of controversy. Is Simmel only a brilliant impressionist, a flâneur in the territories of modernity? Providing an illuminating and coherent presentation of Simmel's sociological theory, The Challenge of Modernity seeks to demonstrate how Simmel contributed a structured sociological theory that fits the criteria of a 'sociological grand theory'. Indeed, starting by the theory of modernity and its dimensions of social differentiation, monetarisation, culture reification and urbanisation; it reconstructs the architecture of Simmel's sociological epistemology. Particular attention is dedicated to the theory of 'qualitative societal differentiation' that Simmel develops within his cultural sociology, with the late work being presented as a double contribution to the foundation of sociological anthropology and to the social ethics of complex societies. Presenting the entirety of Simmel's manifold oeuvre from the viewpoint of its relevance for sociology, this comprehensive volume will appeal to scholars and advanced students who wish to understand Simmel's relevance for socio-political thought and become acquainted with his contribution to sociological theory. It will also be of interest to the wider public who seek a critical assessment of our age in theoretical terms
Populism and the crisis of democracy by Gregor Fitzi( )

13 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The contributions to this volume Politics, Social Movements and Extremism take serious the fact that populism is a symptom of the crisis of representation that is affecting parliamentary democracy. Right-wing populism skyrocketed to electoral success and is now part of the government in several European countries, but it also shaped the Brexit campaign and the US presidential election. In Southern Europe, left-wing populism transformed the classical two parties systems into ungovernable three fractions parliaments, whereas in Latin America it still presents an instable alternative to liberal democracy. The varying consequences of populist mobilisation so far consist in the maceration of the established borders of political culture, the distortion of legislation concerning migrants and migration, and the emergence of hybrid regimes bordering on and sometimes leaning towards dictatorship. Yet, in order to understand populism, innovative research approaches are required that need to be capable of overcoming stereotypes and conceptual dichotomies which are deeply rooted in the political debate. The chapters of this volume offer such new theoretical strategies for inquiring into the multi-faceted populist phenomenon. The chapters analyse its language, concepts and its relationship to social media in an innovative way, draw the contours of left- and right-wing populism and reconstruct its shifting delimitation to political extremism. Furthermore, they value the most significant aftermath of populist mobilisation on the institutional frame of parliamentary democracy from the limitation of the freedom of press, to the dismantling of the separation of powers, to the erosion of citizenship rights. This volume will be an invaluable reference for students and scholars in the field of political theory, political sociology and European Studies."--Provided by publisher
Populism and the crisis of democracy by Gregor Fitzi( )

11 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today, Western democratic societies are facing a serious threat from both populist parties and social movements. Not only the debates in the course of the presidential elections in the US or UKs Brexit, but also the critical role the National Front will play in the upcoming presidential elections in France, and populist tendencies all over Europe as well as populist regimes in Hungary or Poland pose serious threats to the democratic culture of Western societies and its core institution citizenship. Against the background of these developments the volume attends to serious lacunae in the debate on populism in the social sciences, particularly in sociology. First, the chapters included contribute to clarifying conceptual uncertainties of what populism actually means; second, they analyse the ways populism develops and turns into a strong political force; third, they thoroughly discuss the most critical aspects of recent populist debates as security, social exclusion, migration, religion, gender, and law."--Provided by publisher

The Routledge international handbook of Simmel studies by Gregor Fitzi( )

4 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Routledge International Handbook of Simmel Studies documents the richness, variety and creativity of contemporary international research on Georg Simmel's work. Starting with the established role of Simmel as a classical author of sociology and including the growing interest in his work in the domain of philosophy, this volume explores the research on Simmel in several further disciplines including art, social aesthetics, literature, theatre, essayism and critical theory, as well as in the debates on cosmopolitanism, economic pathologies of life, freedom, modernity, religion, and nationalism. Bringing together contributions from leading specialists in research on Simmel, the book is thematically arranged in order to highlight the relevance of his oeuvre for different fields of recent research, with a further section tracing the most important paths that Simmel's reception has taken in the world. As such, it will appeal to scholars across the social sciences and humanities, and to sociologists, philosophers and social theorists in particular, with interest in Simmel's thought"--

Grenzen des Konsenses : Rekonstruktion einer Theorie "transnormativer Vergesellschaftung by Gregor Fitzi( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in German and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Auseinandersetzung mit der Debatte über die vorpolitischen Bedingungen moderner Rechtstaatlichkeit (Böckenförde, Habermas, Ratzinger) sowie mit Luhmanns Rechtsoziologie bietet Fitzis Grenzen des Konsenses den systematischen Leitfaden, um die Untersuchung transnormativer Vergesellschaftung in die gegenwärtige Theorielandschaft einzuordnen und ihre Tragweite abzustecken. Integrationsprozesse in komplexen Gesellschaften lassen sich nicht mehr auf der Grundlage gemeinsamer Wertvorstellungen vollziehen. Die vorpolitischen Ressourcen moderner Rechtstaatlichkeit stoßen an ihre Grenzen. Dennoch arten sozialpolitische Spannungen in der Regel nicht in offene Konflikte aus. Transnormative Vergesellschaftungsformen ermöglichen es, Handlungsarrangements mit begrenzter raum-zeitlicher Geltung zu etablieren. Gesellschaften entwickeln eine Spannkraft, die sie gegen die politisch unbeherrschte Dynamik von Weltwirtschaft und -gesellschaft resistent macht. Die normative Ausrichtung weiter Teile der sozialwissenschaftlichen Theorie hindert diese daran, die vorsystemische Schwelle in den Blick zu nehmen, an der die Legitimationsverfahren transnormativer Vergesellschaftung ansetzen. Gibt die Theorie die normative Lesart des soziologischen Kanons auf, die Parsons etablierte, so zeigt sich, dass klassische soziologische Forschungsprogramme wesentliche Bausteine zur Analyse transnormativer Vergesellschaftung bieten. Sie stellen die Geltungsfrage sozialer Strukturen ins Zentrum der Aufmerksamkeit. Tönnies', Simmels und Webers Werke sind neu zu lesen. Viele Übermalungen sind abzutragen. Die soziologische Theoriebildung wird durch Plessners anthropologische Begründung der Notwendigkeit transnormativer Vergesellschaftung grundlegend ergänzt

Populism and the crisis of democracy( Book )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is no threat to Western democracies today comparable to the rise of right-wing populism. While it has played an increasing role at least since the 1990s, only the social consequences of the global financial crises in 2008 have given it its break that led to UK's `Brexit' and the election of Donald Trump as US President in 2016, as well as promoting what has been called left populism in countries that were hit the hardest by both the banking crisis and consequential neo-liberal austerity politics in the EU, such as Greece and Portugal. In 2017, the French Front National (FN) attracted many voters in the French Presidential elections; we have seen the radicalization of the Alternative fur Deutschland (AfD) in Germany and the formation of centre-right government in Austria. Further, we have witnessed the consolidation of autocratic regimes, as in the EU member states Poland and Greece. All these manifestations of right-wing populism share a common feature: they attack or even compromise the core elements of democratic societies such as the separation of powers, protection of minorities, or the rule of law. Despite a broad debate on the re-emergence of `populism' in the transition from the twentieth to the twenty-first century that has brought forth many interesting findings, a lack of sociological reasoning cannot be denied, as sociology itself withdrew from theorising populism decades ago and largely left the field to political sciences and history. In a sense, Populism and the Crisis of Democracy considers itself a contribution to begin filling this lacuna. Written in a direct and clear style, this set of volumes will be an invaluable reference for students and scholars in the field of political theory, political sociology and European Studies. This volume Concepts and Theory offers new and fresh perspectives on the debate on populism. Starting from complaints about the problems of conceptualising populism that in recent years have begun to revolve around themselves, the chapters offer a fundamental critique of the term and concept of populism, theoretically inspired typologies and descriptions of currently dominant concepts, and ways to elaborate on them. With regard to theory, the volume offers approaches that exceed the disciplinary horizon of political science that so far has dominated the debate. As sociological theory so far has been more or less absent in the debate on populism, only few efforts have been made to discuss populism more intensely within different theoretical contexts in order to explain its dynamics and processes. Thus, this volume offers critical views on the debate on populism from the perspectives of political economy and the analysis of critical historical events, the links of analyses of populism with social movement mobilisation, the significance of `superfluous populations' in the rise of populism and an analysis of the exclusionary character of populism from the perspective of the theory of social closure.--
Urban change and citizenship in times of crisis( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Urban Change and Citizenship in Times of Crisis addresses the fact that in the beginning of the twenty-first century the majority of the world's population is urbanised, a social fact that has turned cities more than ever into focal sites of social change. Multiple economic and political strategies, employed by a variety of individual and collective actors, on a number of scales, constitute cities as contested spaces that hold opportunities as well as restrictions for their inhabitants. While cities and urban spaces have long been of central concern for the social sciences, today, classical sociological questions about the city acquire new meaning: Can cities be spaces of emancipation, or does life in the modern city entail a corrosion of citizenship rights? Is the city the focus of societal transformation processes, or do urban environments lose importance in shaping social reality and economic relationships? Furthermore, new questions urgently need to be asked: What is the impact of different historical phenomena such as neo-liberal restructuring, financial and economic crises, or migration flows, as well as their respective counter-movements, on the structure of contemporary cities and on the citizenship rights of city inhabitants? The three volumes address such crucial questions thereby opening up new spaces of debate on both the city and new developments of urbanism. The contributions toTheories and Conceptsoffer new theoretical reflections on the city in a philosophical and historical perspective as well as fresh empirical analyses of social life in urban contexts. Chapters not only critically revisit classical and modern philosophical considerations about the nature of cities but no less discuss normative philosophical reflections of urban life and the role of religion in historical processes of the emergence of cities. Composed around the question whether there can be such a thing as a successful city', this volume addresses issues of urban political subjectivities by considering the city's role in historical processes of emancipation, the fight for citizenship rights, and today's challenges and opportunities with regard to promoting social justice, integration, and diversity. Consequentially, theory-driven empirical analyses offer new insight into ways of solving problems in urban contexts and a genuine approach to analyse the Social Quality in cities

At times of triumphant neo-liberalism cities increasingly become objects of financial speculation. Formally, social and political rights might not be abolished, yet factually they have become inaccessible for large parts of the population. The contributions gathered in this volume shed light on the clash between the perspectives of restructuring and reordering urban environments in the interest of investors and the manifold and innovative agencies of resistance that claim and stand up for the rights of urban citizenship. Renewed waves of urban transformation employ state coercion to foster the expulsion of poor and marginalised inhabitants from those urban spaces that attract interest from speculators. The intervention of state agencies triggers the work of hegemonic culture for reframing the housing issue and implementing moral and political legitimation, as well as legislation that restricts urban citizenship rights. The case studies of the volume comparatively show the different and sometimes contradictory patterns of these conflicts in Berlin, Sydney, Belfast, Jerusalem, Amsterdam, and stanbul as well as in metropoles of Latin America and China. Innovative resistance agencies emerge that paint possible paths for the re-establishment of the right to the city as the core of urban citizenship

The contributions to Urban neo- liberalisation bring together critical analyses of the dynamics and processes neo- liberalism has facilitated in urban contexts. Recent developments, such as intensified economic investment and exposure to aggressive strategies of banks, hedge- funds and investors, and long- term processes of market- and state- led urban restructuration, have produced uneven urban geographies and new forms of exclusion and marginality. These strategies have no less transformed the governance of cities by subordinating urban social life to rationalities and practices of competition within and between cities, and they also heavily impact on city inhabitants' experience of everyday life. Against the backdrop of recent austerity politics and a marketisation of cities, this volume discusses processes of urban neo- liberalisation with regard to democracy and citizenship, inclusion and exclusion, opportunities, and life- chances. It addresses pressing issues of commodification of housing and home, activation of civil society, vulnerability, and the right to the city
