Verkörperungen des Sozialen

Neophänomenologische Grundlagen und soziologische Analysen

Series: KörperKulturen

Social reality is not only, as the sociological mainstream suggests, the result of rationally and norm-oriented acting individuals. Rather, it is just as much the product of the interaction of embodied subjects. Body is a fundamental conditions for the constitution and construction, representation and reproduction of sociality. On the basis of New Phenomenology, Robert Gugutzer develops cornerstones of a neo-phenomenological sociology and presents "embodiment" as a sociological basic concept. Using six case studies on sport, dance, film, religion, education and identity as examples, the untapped cognitive potential of a body-based sociology is illustrated.
