Außenseiter

Zur Soziologie abweichenden Verhaltens

​ „Der Mensch mit abweichendem Verhalten ist ein Mensch, auf den diese Bezeichnung erfolgreich angewandt worden ist; abweichendes Verhalten ist Verhalten, das Menschen als solches bezeichnen“: Es ist einer der klassischen Sätze der Devianzsoziologie in einem der Klassiker des Feldes. Howard S. Becker betont fernab von alten und simplistischen Fragen danach, „warum Menschen Regeln brechen“, welche Situationen und welche Prozesse dazu führen, dass Menschen in Positionen geraten, in denen sie als „Regelbrecher“ betitelt werden, wie sie mit diesen Positionen umgehen und sich auch gegen diese wehren. „Außenseiter“ erschien erstmals 1963 in New York und wurde 1981 bei S. Fischer in deutscher Übersetzung publiziert. Seit den frühen neunziger Jahren vergriffen, liegt hier nun eine von Michael Dellwing überarbeitete und herausgegebene Version vor.

Langweiliges Verbrechen

Warum KriminologInnen den Umgang mit Kriminalität interessanter finden als Kriminalität

Crime ist – neben Sex – ein spannendes Thema. Die Boulevardpresse bestätigt das täglich. Gerade aber eine wachsende Zahl von KriminologInnen sieht das anders. Sie finden das Verbrechen langweilig. Kriminalität ist für sie das Ergebnis von Etikettierungen. Und diese Etikettierungen interessieren sie – unter interaktionstheoretischen, sozial-ökologischen, polit-ökonomischen und herrschaftssoziologischen Gesichtspunkten. Die Wahrnehmungs- und Bedeutsamkeitsdifferenzen zwischen einem Großteil der KriminalwissenschaftlerInnen und großen Teilen der Bevölkerung sind größer geworden. Der Band gibt viele Antworten auf die mit diesen Entwicklungen gestellten Fragen.

GRIT - Die neue Formel zum Erfolg

Mit Begeisterung und Ausdauer ans Ziel

Die neue Formel zum Erfolg: Leidenschaft Ausdauer und Zuversicht Eine Mischung aus Ausdauer und Leidenschaft, nicht IQ, Startbedingungen oder Talent entscheidet über den Erfolg eines Menschen. Diese These hat die Neurowissenschaftlerin und Psychologin Angela Duckworth in dem Wort GRIT zusammengefasst, das im Englischen so viel wie Biss oder Mumm heißt, und hat damit weltweit Aufsehen erregt. Auf Basis ihrer eigenen Geschichte, von wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen und anhand ungewöhnlicher Leistungsbiografien ist sie dem Geheimnis von erfolgreichen Menschen auf den Grund gegangen, seien sie Sportler, Bankmanager oder Comiczeichner. Sie weist nach, dass nicht "Genie", sondern eine einzigartige Kombination aus Begeisterungsfähigkeit und langfristigem Durchhaltevermögen darüber entscheidet, ob man seine Ziele erreicht. Mit zahlreichen Beispielen, die jeder auf seine Situation anwenden kann, erläutert Angela Duckworth das Konzept der motivierten Beharrlichkeit. Und sie fordert dazu auf, im Wissen um GRIT Lernen und Bildung neu zu denken.
