  • Der zündende Funkeby Nico Stehr

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2014; Not Available

    Diese Schrift ist ein Versuch, nützliche und positive Lehren aus den ungewöhnlichen letzten zehn Jahren der Klimapolitik von 2003 bis 2013 zu ziehen. Eine der wichtigsten Schlussfolgerungen lautet: ?Top-down?-Klimaschutzmaßnahmen haben bis jetzt ihre Ziele nicht erreicht und werden sie wohl nie erreichen. Nur eine spontane, grundsätzlich bezahlbare... more...

  • Die Freiheit ist eine Tochter des Wissensby Nico Stehr

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2015; Not Available

    Der wechselseitige Einfluss von Wissen und Freiheit (und damit Demokratie) in modernen, hochkomplexen Gesellschaften wie auch der Wandel ihrer Beziehungen im Laufe der Moderne ist eines der faszinierendsten Themen unseres Zeitalters. Es handelt sich dabei wohl kaum um eine einmal festgeschriebene, statische Beziehung, sondern um eine historisch-dynamische... more...

  • The Fragility of Modern Societiesby Nico Stehr

    SAGE Publications 2001; US$ 18.00

    This book argues that knowledge is now central to the modern economy and its productive processes. It is also essential for social relations, social cohesion and conflict resolution. We have moved from a society based around heavy commodities to symbolic goods, from situated markets to non-place-specific locations, from machines to software and from... more...

  • Knowledge Politicsby Nico Stehr

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 69.95

    This book argues that new technologies and society's response to them have created a relatively new phenomenon, "knowledge politics." Nico Stehr describes Western society's response to a host of new technologies developed only since the 1970s, including genetic experiments, test-tube human conception, recombinant DNA, and embryonic stem cells; genetically... more...

  • Moral Marketsby Nico Stehr

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 65.95

    Nothing affects modern society more than the decisions made in the marketplace, especially (but not only) the judgments of consumers. Stehr's designation of a new stage in modern societies with the term "moral markets" signals a further development in the social evolution of markets. Market theories still widely in use today emerged in a society that... more...

  • Climate and Societyby Nico Stehr; Hans von Storch

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 62.00

    Climate and Society presents from a transdisciplinary view, climate and its changes, impact and perception. The history of climate and its different approaches over time — which are anthropocentric and more system-oriented, academic and application-driven — are reviewed, as are the possibilities of managing climate, in particular by steering... more...

  • Expertsby Nico Stehr; Reiner Grundmann

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 54.95

    In this book, Stehr and Grundmann outline the theoretical significance and practical importance of the growing stratum of experts, counsellors and advisors in contemporary society, and claim that the growing spectrum of knowledge-based occupations has led to the pluralisation of expertise. As decision makers in organizations and private citizens,... more...

  • Knowledgeby Marian Adolf; Nico Stehr

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 47.95

    Almost everything we do is based on our knowledge of the world around us: how we dress in the morning, how we go about our work, how we interact with other people ? all these things rest on our understanding of how we know life. Knowledge might be seen as the most central as well as the most under-researched trait of social life: we mainly think of... more...

  • Knowledge and Politics (RLE Social Theory)by Volker Meja; Nico Stehr

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 47.95

    Karl Mannheim?s Ideology and Utopia has been a profoundly provocative book. The debate about politics and social knowledge that was spawned by its original publication in 1929 attracted the most promising younger scholars, some of whom shaped the thought of several generations. The book became a focus for a debate on the methodological and epistemological... more...
