„STS“ goes Sociology!? Chancen und Risiken der wissenschaftssoziologischen Beforschung des eigenen Fachs DANNY OTTO Können Theorien und Methoden der „Science and Technology Studies“ („STS“) für die Untersuchung sozialwissenschaftlicher Wissensfabrikation hilfreich sein?

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. […] But the existence of soci- ety, from a family to a state, supposes a certain harmony of sen- timent among its members; and nature has, accordingly, wisely implanted in us a tendency to assimilate in opinions and habits of thought to those with whom we live and act.

Atmosphärencharakters sozialer Situationen zur Folge haben muss. Die neophänomenologische Soziologie führt mit dem Atmosphärenbegriff einen neuen Begriff in die Soziologie ein, der da- her nicht nur für eine Reihe von Teilgebieten der Soziologie, allen voran die Raum- und Emotionssoziologie, analytischen Erkenntnisgewinn verspricht, son- dern für die (Mikro-) Soziologie insgesamt. 4. 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
