Présentation de l'éditeur :

This lucid and lively book, punctuated with witty, incisive examples, is addressed both to the layman who wants to know what sociology is all about and to students and sociologists who are concerned about the larger implications and dimensions of their discipline. Professor Berger places sociology in the humanist tradition and recognizes it as a "peculiarly modern, peculiarly timely form of critical thought." Without underestimating the importance of scientific procedures in sociology, he points out its essential affinity with history and philosophy, and he shows how sociology in this sense can contribute to a fuller awareness of the human world.

"Unlike puppets," he notes, "we have the possibility of stopping in our movements, looking up and perceiving the machinery by which we have been moved. In this act lies the first step towards freedom." Professor Berger discusses this consciousness in detail, in relation to one's own biography, to the operations of social institutions, and to the makeup of an individual as a product of this institutions. In each instance, he outlines the major contributions to sociology of such classical sociologists as Weber, Pareto, and Drukheim in Europe; Veblen, Cooley, and Mead in the United States; and some of the most important names in the field today.

März 1929 in Wien) ist ein österreichisch/US-amerikanischer Soziologe. Leben: Peter L. Berger, 1929 in Wien geboren, lebt seit dem Jahre 1946 in den USA, wo er Soziologie und Philosophie studierte. Er studierte zunächst am Wagner College, wo er einen B.A. erwarb. Im Anschluss studierte er an der New School for Social Research in New York (M.A. 1950, Ph.D. 1952). In den Jahren 1955 und 1956 arbeitete er an der Evangelischen Akademie Bad Boll. In den Jahren 1956 1958 lehrte und forschte er als Assistenzprofessor an der University of North Carolina; von 1958 1963 arbeitete er am Hartford Theological Seminary. Darauf folgten Professuren an der New School for Social Research in New York, der Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ) und dem Boston College. Seit dem Jahre 1981 ist Berger Professor für Soziologie und Theologie an der Boston University, seit 1985 als Direktor des Institute for the Study of Economic Culture (heute: Institute on Culture, Religion and World Affairs). Berger veröffentlichte eine Reihe viel beachteter Bücher und Artikel. Das zentrale Arbeits- und Forschungsfeld Bergers bildet die Religionssoziologie. Bekannt wurde er u. a durch seine gemeinsam mit Thomas Luckmann verfasste wissenssoziologische Arbeit Die gesellschaftliche Konstruktion der Wirklichkeit aus dem Jahre 1966 (engl.) und 1969 (dt.), durch sein gemeinsam mit Brigitte Berger (Long Island University) und Hansfried Kellner (TH Darmstadt) publiziertes Werk Das Unbehagen in der Modernität (engl. The Homeless Mind. Modernization and Consciousness), in welchem wissenssoziologisch bereits im Jahre 1973 die "Globalisierungsdebatte" und die Debatte um die "Wissensgesellschaft" vorweggenommen wurde. Sowohl in Bergers Invitation to Sociology (dt. Einladung zur Soziologie) als auch in dem 1981 gleichfalls mit Hansfried Kellner publizierten Buch Sociology Reinterpreted. An Essay on Method and Vocation (dt. Für eine neue Soziologie 1984) wird eine an Max Weber orientierte wissenssoziologische Sicht der Soziologie vorgestellt. 2000 erhielt er den Ludwig-Wittgenstein-Preis der Österreichischen Forschungsgemeinschaft. Um die Situation des religionskulturellen Pluralismus auf den Begriff zu bringen, spricht Berger von einem häretischen Imperativ: Keine religiöse Tradition gelte mehr fraglos. Alle Gläubigen oder Glaubenswilligen, eine jede und ein jeder für sich, seien gehalten, aus den Traditionsbeständen Passendes auszuwählen (das griechische Wort haíresis bedeutet Wahl" oder Auswahl"). Auch die, die sich zu einer religiösen Orthodoxie bekennen, kämen in global pluralistisch gewordener Umgebung nicht umhin, sich für ihre Rechtgläubigkeit eigens zu entscheiden. Alle, so die aufmunternd gemeinte Botschaft dieses Befundes, sind Häretiker. . Aus: wikipedia-Peter_L._Berger.
