    In this seminar series we will discuss contributions to sociological theory based on keynote talks and current publications. The guiding topic for presentations and for selecting publications for discussion is: "Social Practice and Sociological Theory".

  • From Globalization to World Society

    The contributions to this volume take their point of departure from two sources of a theory of world society: world polity research and systems theory. The authors aim to map out the common ground shared by world polity research and systems theory and to assess their potential to inform empirical analyses of globalization.
