Social Constructionism: Sources and Stirrings in Theory and Practice offers an introduction to the different theorists and schools of thought that have contributed to the development of contemporary social constructionist ideas, charting a course through the ideas that underpin the discipline. From the New Science of Vico in the 18th century, through to Marxist writers, ethnomethodologists and Wittgenstein, ideas as to how socio-cultural processes provide the resources that make us human are traced to the present day. Despite constructionists often being criticised as 'relativists', 'activists' and 'anti-establishment' and for making no concrete contributions, their ideas are now being adopted by practically-oriented disciplines such as management consultancy, advertising, therapy, education and nursing. Andy Lock and Tom Strong aim to provoke a wider grasp of an alternative history and tradition that has developed alongside the one emphasised in traditional histories of the social sciences.

Now in its third edition, this successful book introduces students to the area of social science theory and research known as social constructionism. Using a variety of examples from everyday experience and from existing research in areas such as personality, sexuality and health, it clearly explains the basic theoretical assumptions of social constructionism. Key debates, such as the nature and status of knowledge, truth, reality and the self are given in-depth analysis in an accessible style. Drawing on a range of empirical studies, the book clearly defines the various different approaches to social constructionist research and explores the theoretical and practical issues involved. While the text is broadly sympathetic to social constructionism, it also adopts a critical perspective to the material, addressing its weaknesses and, in the final chapter, subjecting the theory itself to a more extensive critique. New to this edition: Extended coverage of the relationship between 'mainstream' psychology and social constructionism and how the two fields can engage with each other. An exploration of the rise and popularity of neuroscience and the challenge it poses to social constructionism. New material on the field of psychosocial studies. Updated coverage of existing key issues such as age and sexuality, and inclusion of more recently emerging issues (e.g. status and role of affect). Updated discussion of key social constructionist contributors, with revised references. Updated chapter on research methods, including more on narrative and critical narrative analysis, and personal construct methods. The third edition of Social Constructionism extends and updates the material covered in previous editions and will be an invaluable and informative resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students across the social and behavioural sciences.

Der vorliegende Band befasst sich mit „Identität“, einem der wichtigsten sozialwissenschaftlichen Konzepte zum Verhältnis von Individuum und Gesellschaft in spätmodernen Lebenswelten. Das ist für Psychotherapie und Soziotherapie heute von herausragender Bedeutung, will man Persönlich-keitsentwicklung, Gesundheit, Risiken, Belastungen ohne Ausblendung des Sozialen und ohne verkürzende Individualisierungen verstehen und Störungen bzw. Erkrankungen wirksam behandeln. Das Identitätsthema wird zunächst interdisziplinär in seinen psychologischen, philosophischen, soziologischen, gendertheoretischen Dimensionen von führenden Autoren dargestellt (Hurrelmann, Keupp, Levold, Stumm, Zarbock u.a.). Die weiteren Beiträge befassen sich mit der therapeutischen Relevanz von Identitätskonzepten und ihrer Umsetzung in die Praxis der verschiedenen Psychotherapieformen. Das war lange vernachlässigt worden. Jetzt werden erstmalig schulenübergreifend Identitätsfragen von Experten der Verhaltenstherapie, wissenschaftlichen Gesprächspsychotherapie, systemischen Therapie, Psychoanalyse, der Integrativen Therapie u. a. handlungskonkret aufgegriffen. Mit diesem Band wird eine „identitätstherapeutische Wende “im Spektrum der Kernthemen von Psychotherapie, Soziotherapie und Supervision auf den Weg gebracht.

Joint Action: Essays in honour of John Shotter brings together a cross-disciplinary group of fifteen respected international scholars to explain the relevance of John Shotter’s work to emerging concerns in twenty-first century social science. Shotter’s work extends over forty years and continues to challenge conventional scientific thinking across a range of topics. The disciplines and practices that Shotter’s work has informed are well established throughout the English-speaking world. This is the first publication to examine the importance of his influence in contemporary social sciences and it includes authoritative discussions on topics such as social constructionism, democratic practice, organisational change, the affective turn and human relations. The geographical diversity and disciplinary breadth of scholarly contributions imbues the book with international scope and reach. Joint Action presents a contemporary reflection on Shotter’s work that demonstrates its influence across a range of substantive topics and practical endeavours and within disciplines including management studies and philosophy as well as psychology. As such, it will appeal to researchers and postgraduate students of social sciences and related disciplines, as well as to those who have heard of Shotter’s work and want to know more about its utility and value in relation to their own research or practice.

Taleb ist einer der prägenden Denker des 21. Jahrhunderts – Antifragilität ist sein zentrales Werk In seinem Weltbestseller Der Schwarze Schwan problematisierte Nassim Nicholas Taleb die zunehmende Unberechenbarkeit der Welt. Jetzt liegt sein wichtigstes Buch vor: In Antifragilität liefert „der führende Denker unserer Zeit“ (Times) eine wirkmächtige Gebrauchsanweisung, wie wir selbst, unsere Unternehmen und Strukturen, Chaos und unberechenbare Ereignisse nicht nur überstehen, sondern sogar davon profitieren können. Denn alles, was nicht antifragil ist, wird verschwinden. Nassim Nicholas Taleb, der Aufklärer und Schreck aller „Versicherer“ und Analysten schickt in seinem neuen Buch heutiges Risikomanagement und Prognostik in die Wüste. Nicht indem wir Zufälle und Ungewissheit um jeden Preis abzuwehren versuchen, gewinnen wir, sondern indem wir sie zu Stärken ummünzen. Talebs Konzept der Antifragilität ist eine große, praktisch-philosophische Antwort auf die Herausforderungen unsicherer Zeiten. Seine Beispiele bedienen das ganze Spektrum von Finanzen und Wirtschaft, Politik, Wissenschaft, Privatleben. Er zeigt, warum kleine Strukturen besser sind als große, Stadtstaaten besser als Nationen, warum Silicon Valley mehr Erfolg hat als das Bankensystem, warum Zahnärzte und LKWFahrer antifragiler sind als Bischöfe und Geschäftsführer, warum Schulden abhängig machen und warum alles, was zu kompliziert ist, von der Bildfläche verschwinden wird. Multidisziplinär und mit großer Übersicht umreißt Antifragilität ein neues Denken für eine Welt, die bei allem Fortschritt niemals berechenbar sein wird.
