In this book on shaping a meaningful and ethical life, the renowned, Pulitzer Prize–winning author explores how character, courage, and human and moral understanding can be fostered by reflecting on the lives of others, through stories. Based on Robert Coles’ legendary course at Harvard, this provocative book addresses such questions as, “Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going?” It calls on us to become stronger and more aware, by reflecting on ourselves and others with the help of great literature and art. Dr. Coles shows how the work of writers, artists, and thinkers of the past two centuries can inspire our own reflections on the daily lives we lead. He offers a compelling call to venture outside of our own selves and lives and to listen, attentively and with growing humanity, to the way others get through life. Coles encourages us to examine our own character, kindness, and complexity by looking carefully at our perceptions of others, and by studying the wisdom of authors from Charles Dickens to Flannery O’Connor, from James Agee to George Orwell, and many others. In this influential conversation about empathy and engagement, Coles inspires us to seek out deeper meaning in our lives, and guides us toward achieving greater clarity, strength, and richness of understanding, amid the moral, psychological, and social complexities of the modern world. From the Hardcover edition.

Is sociology best understood as simply chipping away at our ignorance about society, or does it have broader roles and responsibilities? If so, to what—or perhaps to whom—are these responsibilities? Installing humanity as its epistemological and normative start and endpoint, this book shows how humanism recasts sociology as an activity that does not merely do things, or effect things, but is also self-consciously for something. Rather than resurrecting problematic classical conceptions of humanism, the book instead constructs its arguments on pragmatic grounds, showing how a pragmatic humanism presents an improved picture of both the nature and value of the discipline. This picture is based less around the claim that sociology is capable of providing authoritative revelations about society, and more upon its capacity to offer representations of the social in epistemologically open, transformative, ethical, and hopeful ways. Ultimately, it argues that sociology’s real value can only be disclosed by replacing its image as a discipline aimed towards disinterested social enlightenment with one of itself as a practice both dependent upon, and at its best self-consciously aimed towards, human ends and imperatives. It will appeal to scholars and students across the social sciences, and to those working in social theory, sociology, and philosophy of the social sciences in particular.

Der vierzehnjährige Ponyboy Curtis lebt allein mit seinen älteren Brüdern Soda und Darry, seit die Eltern bei einem Autounfall ums Leben gekommen sind. Ponyboy ist ein Greaser - so nennen sich die Jugendlichen aus den Slums der Großstadt, die einen endlosen Kleinkrieg gegen die arroganten Socs aus den wohlhabenden Familien der West Side führen. Dieser Krieg hinterlässt nicht nur sichtbare Wunden, sondern auch Narben auf der Seele: der nervöse Jonny hat panische Angst vor den Socs, seitdem sie ihn brutal zusammengeschlagen haben. Als Pony und Jonny eines Abends von einigen betrunkenen Socs überfallen werden, dreht Jonny durch und ersticht einen der anderen Jungen. Mit Ponyboy flieht er aus der Stadt und versteckt sich in einer alten Holzkirche. Dort kommt es zur zweiten Katastrophe: Beim Versuch, einige Kinder aus der brennenden Kirche retten, wird Jonny schwer verletzt. Dass die Greaser die Socs in einer großen Schlacht besiegen, ist für Ponyboy nun nicht mehr so wichtig. Durch Jonnys Tod beginnt er zu verstehen, wie sinnlos Hass und Gewalt tatsächlich sind.
