Abstract


The 14 articles in this collection present theories, questions and research areas in German sociology of knowledge. The contributions analyze the construction of reality with regard to knowledge. As a science of "the real," sociology of knowledge gains access to other disciplines such as ethnology, systems theory, communication studies or cognitive science. The collection emphasizes a critical approach to the possibilities and capacities of sociology of knowledge as such. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0901278
