The Sociology of Octavio Paz Oliver Kozlarek1 Solitude ripens originality in us, bold and disconcerting beauty, poetry. But solitude also ripens the perverse, the asymmetrical, the absurd, the forbidden. Thomas Mann2 Octavio Paz was not a sociologist, and it would be quite inaccurate to adduce that he was, because his attitude towards sociology or, at least, to a certain kind of sociology, was always both critical and distanced. However, one may well ask: what is sociology after all? Are the boundaries it shares with other intellectual and academic fi elds

For a Sociology of Flesh and Blood Questions to Loïc Wacquant How important is it in your view to focus on the implicit dimensions (tacit knowl- edge, knowing-how, sens pratique, etc.) of social interaction? It is crucial if we are to overcome three perennial flaws that cramp social sci- ence and prevent us from developing vibrant, full-color accounts of society and history: a dualistic and disincarnated vision of the agent, constituted of an acti- ve mind mounted on an absent, inert, and dumb body; a flattened and negative notion of structure construed as a

Bad Habits and the Origins of Sociology Bernhard Kleeberg »Man is by nature a social animal.

DOING SOCIOLOGY: DER LEIB ALS ERKENNTNISMEDIUM Eine Soziologie, die die Bedeutung der Leiblichkeit der Menschen für soziale Belange ernst nimmt, kommt nicht umhin, danach zu fragen, inwiefern die

Explanans vs. Explanandum, Freedom vs. Cohesion: The Conceptual Structure of Urban Sociology JAN KEMPER Sociological topics and theoretical approaches change parallel to the dynamics of social reality. Conceptual explorations of urban sociologists can therefore be described in an epistemological realist manner, as the academic reaction to specific “urban” situations as well as to broader economic, political, and cultural conditions. Seen in this way, cognitive interests and conceptual structures in urban sociology are perceived merely as

analysis as fundamental concept for analyzing my empirical data. Science policy, as a specific field of public policy, can be viewed through mul- tiple lenses and with different focal points of analysis: As in other social science research, manifold conceptual approaches exist as theoretical frames of policy in general, and science policy in particular. Policy processes have been considered from a variety of scientific perspectives, such as sociology and political sciences, anthropology, international relations, psychology, economics, or management sci- ences (Sutton
