The sensory revolution in the social sciences is transforming the ways in which the senses and the sensorium are studied and understood in relation to bodies in action. This is the first book to investigate the impact, and challenges, of this revolution for those interested in physical culture. Providing vivid examples of sensory scholarship in action from sport, physical activity, leisure and recreation, this book brings together leading figures to discuss how we go about seeking the senses, how we engage in somatic work, and how we create meanings and come to understand ourselves and others as embodied beings in a variety of social settings over time. Featuring original reflections on athletics, running, cycling, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, glow sports, jiu jitsu, mixed martial arts and yoga, this ground breaking collection showcases the latest sensory research in physical culture as well as paving the way both conceptually and methodologically for future work in this area. Seeking the Senses in Physical Culture: Sensuous scholarship in action is fascinating reading for all those interested in physical cultural and body studies; the sociology, psychology and philosophy of sport; leisure and recreation studies; and physical education.

The seas and oceans are currently taking centre stage in academic study and public consciousness. From the plastics littering our seas, to the role of climate change on ocean currents from unequal access of marine resources to the treacherous experiences of seafarers who keep our global economy afloat; now is a crucial time to examine how we live with the sea. This ambitious book brings together an interdisciplinary and international cohort of contributors from within and?beyond?academia. It offers a range and diversity of insights unlike previous collections. An ‘oceanic turn’ is taking place, with a burgeoning of academic work that takes seriously the place of seas and oceans in understanding socio-cultural and political life, past and present. Yet, there is a significant gap concerning the ways in which we engage with seas and oceans, with a will to enliven action and evoke change. This book explores these challenges, offering insights from spatial planning, architectural design, geography, educational studies, anthropology and cultural studies. An examination through these lenses can help us to better understand human relationships with the seas and oceans, and promote an ethic of care for the future.

The last two decades have witnessed a proliferation of qualitative research in sport and exercise. The Routledge Handbook of Qualitative Research in Sport and Exercise is the first book to offer an in-depth survey of established and emerging qualitative methods, from conceptual first principles to practice and process. Written and edited by a team of world-leading researchers, and some of the best emerging talents, the book introduces a range of research traditions within which qualitative researchers work. It explores the different methods used to collect and analyse data, offering rationales for why each method might be chosen and guidance on how to employ each technique successfully. It also introduces important contemporary debates and goes further than any other book in exploring new methods, concepts, and future directions, such as sensory research, digital research, visual methods, and how qualitative research can generate impact. Cutting-edge, timely and comprehensive, the Routledge Handbook of Qualitative Research in Sport and Exercise is an essential reference for any student or scholar using qualitative methods in sport and exercise-related research.

Wahrscheinlicher Grund des ungewöhnlichen Buch-Erfolges ist der revolutionäre Inhalt von "Theologie der Hoffnung". Moltmann propagiert darin ein umstürzlerisches, gesellschaftsänderndes - wie er sagt: ursprüngliches - Christentum und offeriert damit Christen und Kirchen eine Theologie, die zu aktiven, ja aggressiven Auseinandersetzungen mit der politischen Umwelt ermächtigt und anfeuert. Die Christen, so ruft Moltmann seine Glaubensbrüder auf, sollen der Wirklichkeit nicht mehr "die Schleppe nachtragen, sondern die Fackel voran".

Die Akzentuierung des Positiven ist ein Grundsatz, der im geschäftlichen Alltag von Organisationen oft verloren geht. Wertschätzendes Organisieren liefert hier neben einem innovativen theoretischen Rahmen auch neue Praxisformen, die wachsende Effizienz-, Leistungs- und Qualitätsanforderungen erfüllen. Wertschätzendes Organisieren setzt dabei zwei zentrale Gedanken um: dass wir uns insbesondere für die Dinge engagieren, die uns etwas bedeuten und die wertvoll für uns sind, und dass diese Bedeutungen und Werte in Beziehungen hergestellt werden. Im Mittelpunkt dieses Bandes steht der prominente Text von Kenneth Gergen et al. »Die Wertschätzende Organisation« (Titel der US-amerikanischen Originalausgabe: »The Appreciative Organisation«), der hier erstmalig in deutscher Übersetzung vorliegt. Experten aus unterschiedlichen Berufsfeldern diskutieren die neue Konzeption und untersuchen ihre Praxistauglichkeit.

Beschreibung: This book is a collection of papers in which cultural-historical activity theory (CHAT) is used to study science, technology and innovations. In the 16 chapters of the book an activity theoretical approach is developed through dialogue with the relevant theoretical approaches of science and technology studies, such as actor network theory, symbolic interactionism and Knorr-Cetinas's theory of objectual cultural practice. The book has three parts. The first one comprises empirical studies on creativity and change in research work and innovations. The cases studied include research groups in analytical chemistry, aerosol physics, biotechnology as well as innovations in medical technology by research-based firms. In making sense of the distributed creation, CHAT is put in dialogue with the systemic view of psychology of creativity, the systemic approach in history of technology as well as sociological theories of creativity. The second part compares systematically the similarities and differences between Deweyan pragmatism and CHAT, and shows how they can be used in a complementary way in empirical research. The third part evaluates actor network theory, constructivist conceptions of learning as well as the concept of routine largely used in organizational studies from the position of CHAT. In addition the concept 'object of activity' central in activity theory is discussed and elaborated in two chapters. The autor: Reijo Miettinen is Professor of Adult Education in the University of Helsinki and he was Vice director of the Center for Activity Theory and Developmental Work Research in 1995-2007.

Ästhetik des Performativen

Spätestens seit den 60er Jahren lassen sich zeitgenössische Kunstwerke nicht mehr in den Begriffen herkömmlicher Ästhetiken erfassen. Anstatt "Werke" zu schaffen, bringen die Künstler zunehmend Ereignisse hervor, die in ihrem Vollzug die alten ästhetischen Relationen von Subjekt und Objekt, von Material- und Zeichenstatus außer Kraft setzen. Um diese Entwicklung nachvollziehbar zu machen, entwickelt Erika Fischer-Lichte in ihrer grundlegenden Studie eine Ästhetik des Performativen, die den Begriff der Aufführung in den Mittelpunkt stellt. Dieser umfaßt die Eigenschaften der leiblichen Kopräsenz von Akteuren und Zuschauern, der performativen Hervorbringung von Materialität sowie der Emergenz von Bedeutung und mündet in eine Bestimmung der Aufführung als Ereignis. Die Aufhebung der Trennung von Kunst und Leben, welche die neueren Ausdrucksformen anstreben, wird hier ästhetisch auf den Begriff gebracht.
