Social existence

Author: Richard Quinney
Publisher: Sage Publications, Inc
ISBN: UOM:39076006732346
Release Date: 1982-10-01
Genre: Philosophy

This exciting, ambitious work attempts to rework into the body of social science concerns that are now more often associated with philosophy. Richard Quinney presents a new paradigm, one that draws on metaphysics and Marx. Does a modern capitalist society require an irreligious, secular spirit to justify exploitation? Quinney believes the division between the secular and the sacred approaches, both of which divide the world into social life and spiritual life, is collapsing. This book is nothing less than an attempt to integrate the two. '...it deserves to be read; and its chapter notes, alone, are rich evidence of useful reading.' -- Contemporary Sociology, Vol 13 No 1, January 1984 'Quinney may not acquire disciples but he may well inspire sociologists to undertake a more reflective and critical reconsideration of their own intellectual development and their basic premises.' -- Contemporary Crises, April 1984

ISBN: 9781446209714
Release Date: 2011-02-17
Genre: Social Science

- what is the relationship between the social sciences and the natural sciences? - where do today's dominant approaches to doing social science come from? - what are the main fissures and debates in contemporary social scientific thought? - how are we to make sense of seemingly contrasting approaches to how social scientists find out about the world and justify their claims to have knowledge of it? In this exciting handbook, Ian Jarvie and Jesús Zamora-Bonilla have put together a wide-ranging and authoritative overview of the main philosophical currents and traditions at work in the social sciences today. Starting with the history of social scientific thought, this handbook sets out to explore that core fundamentals of social science practice, from issues of ontology and epistemology to issues of practical method. Along the way it investigates such notions as paradigm, empiricism, postmodernism, naturalism, language, agency, power, culture, and causality. Bringing together in one volume leading authorities in the field from around the world, this book will be a must-have for any serious scholar or student of the social sciences.

Der Fortschritt in der Philosophie

Author: Karl Heinz Haag
Publisher: BoD – Books on Demand
ISBN: 9783941743762
Release Date: 2018-05-27
Genre: Philosophy

Die klassische Metaphysik war zuinnerst irrational durch ihre Erhebung abstrakter Nachbilder empirischer Dinge zu essentiae rerum. Irrational ist aber auch die Folgerung des Nominalismus, nämlich aus der Unmöglichkeit, das Wesen von Seiendem positiv zu bestimmen, den Schluß zu ziehen, Wesen sei ein sinnloser Begriff. Die geistige Überwindung der einen wie der anderen Form von philosophischem Irrationalismus, zu denen alle späteren Systeme bloße Variationen darstellen, verlangt die Erkenntnis, daß der Schritt in die Sphäre des metaphysischen Grundes von sich aus kognoszibler Dinge nur negativ vollziehbar ist. Auf ihn, den negativen Schritt ins Metaphysische, kann ein Denken, das kritisch sein möchte, nicht verzichten. Seine »rationalistische Einstellung« zur erfahrbaren Wirklichkeit bliebe ohne jenen Schritt sachlich unmotiviert: sie würde unverbindlich – reduziert auf eine Weltanschauung, die in allen Entschlüssen – so Popper – »eine gewisse Priorität des Irrationalismus anerkennt«. Dies zu demonstrieren, war das leitende Interesse der Untersuchung über den Fortschritt in der Philosophie.
