Abstract: Traditionelle Wege der Erzeugung, Implementation und Vermarktung neuer Technologien erweisen sich als zunehmend ungeeignet zur Lösung von Zukunftsproblemen. Sozialwissenschaftliche Innovationsforschung, die sich mit gescheiterten Innovationen, risikoreichen Projekten und der Wirkung staatlicher Technologiepolitik befaßt, liefert dafür zahlreiche Hinweise. Auf einer Tagung des Verbundes Sozialwissenschaftliche Technikforschung wurden Ansätze eines gesellschaftlichen Innovationsmanagements diskutiert, das sozialen und institutionellen Faktoren hohe Bedeutung für den Erfolg von Innovationen beimißt. Inhaltsverzeichnis: Dieter Sauer: Perspektiven sozialwissenschaftlicher Innovationsforschung - eine Einleitung (9-22); Hartmut Hirsch-Kreinsen, Volker Wittke: Soziale Konstitution und Internationalisierung von Innovationsprozessen (25-49); Pierre Veltz: Innovation im Spannungsfeld von Globalisierung und Regionalisierung (51-56); Rob van Tulder: Meso Institutions and Innovation Paradoxes (5

Social Science for What?
Language: en
Pages: 192
Authors: Alice O'Connor
Categories: Social Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 2007-04-02 - Publisher: Russell Sage Foundation

Much like today, the early twentieth century was a period of rising economic inequality and political polarization in America. But it was also an era of progressive reform—a time when the Russell Sage Foundation and other philanthropic organizations were established to promote social science as a way to solve the crises of industrial capitalism. In Social Science for What? Alice O’Connor relates the history of philanthropic social science, exploring its successes and challenges over the years, and asking how these foundations might continue to promote progressive social change in our own politically divided era. The philanthropic foundations established in the early 1900s focused on research which, while intended to be objective, was also politically engaged. In addition to funding social science research, in its early years the Russell Sage Foundation also supported social work and advocated reforms on issues from child welfare to predatory lending. This reformist agenda shaped the foundation’s research priorities and methods. The Foundation’s landmark Pittsburgh Survey of wage labor, conducted in 1907-1908, involved not only social scientists but leaders of charities, social workers, and progressive activists, and was designed not simply to answer empirical questions, but to reframe the public discourse about industrial labor. After World War II, many philanthropic foundations disengaged from political struggles and shifted their funding toward more value-neutral, academic social inquiry, in the belief that disinterested research would yield more effective public policies. Consequently, these foundations were caught off guard in the 1970s and 1980s by the emergence of a network of right-wing foundations, which was successful in promoting an openly ideological agenda. In order to counter the political in-roads made by conservative organizations, O’Connor argues that progressive philanthropic research foundations should look to the example of their founders. While continuing to support the social science research that has contributed so much to American society over the past 100 years, they should be more direct about the values that motivate their research. In this way, they will help foster a more democratic dialogue on important social issues by using empirical knowledge to engage fundamentally ethical concerns about rising inequality. O’Connor’s message is timely: public-interest social science faces unprecedented challenges in this era of cultural warfare, as both liberalism and science itself have come under assault. Social Science for What? is a thought-provoking critique of the role of social science in improving society and an indispensable guide to how progressives can reassert their voice in the national political debate.

In this collection of essays, we reflect on what it means to practise the social sciences in the twenty-first century. The book brings together leading social scientists from the Asia-Pacific region. We argue for the benefit of dialogue between the diverse theories and methods of social sciences in the region, the role of the social sciences in addressing real-world problems, the need to transcend national boundaries in addressing regional problems, and the challenges for an increasingly globalised higher education sector in the twenty-first century. The chapters are a combination of theoretical reflections and locally focused case studies of processes that are embedded in global dynamics and the changing geopolitics of knowledge. In an increasingly connected world, these reflections will be of global relevance
Biologising the Social Sciences

Authors: David Canter, David Turner
Categories: Psychology
Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-02-20 - Publisher: Routledge

You can hardly open a paper or read an academic journal without some attempt to explain an aspect of human behaviour or experience by reference to neuroscience, biological or evolutionary processes. This ‘biologising’ has had rather a free ride until now, being generally accepted by the public at large. However, there is a growing number of scholars who are challenging the assumption that we are little more than our bodies and animal origins. This volume brings together a review of these emerging critiques expressed by an international range of senior academics from across the social sciences. Their arguments are firmly based in the empirical, scientific tradition. They show the lack of logic or evidence for many ‘biologising’ claims, as well as the damaging effects these biological assumptions can have on issues such as dealing with dyslexia or treating alcoholism. This important book, originally published as a special issue of Contemporary Social Science, contributes to a crucial debate on what it means to be human. "This collection of articles by David Canter and his colleagues, rigorously argued and richly informative [...] are of immense importance. It is astonishing that, as Canter puts it in his brilliant overview of biologising trends [...] there are those in the humanities who need to be reminded "that human beings can talk and interact with each other, generating cultures and societies that have an existence that cannot be reduced to their mere mechanical parts".
