Religi Se Argumente Im S Kularen Verfassungsstaat Eine Demokratietheoretische Diskussion from the Author: Daniel Jesche. Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Theorie und Ideengeschichte, Note: 1,3, Universitat Bremen, 32 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Religion ist als Gegenstand offentlicher Diskussion wieder auf der Agenda angekommen. Dies ist nicht erst seit dem 11. September 2001 der Fall. Von der religiosen Rechten in den USA uber das Mullahregime im Iran und dem vermeintlichen Zusammenprall der Kulturen bis zur Debatte um das Tragen eines Kopftuchs in der Schule. Religion wird zusehends unter dem Gesichtspunkt ihrer Vereinbarkeit mit den sie umgebenden Rahmenbedingungen betrachtet. Demgegenuber herrschte in der akademischen Diskussion zur Rolle der Religion lange Zeit Stille(vgl. Haus 2003: 45). Dies mag am gangigen Perzeptionsmuster in den Sozialwissenschaften liegen, welches seit seinen Anfangen einen wahrlich paradigmatischen Status erlangt hat. Die Rede ist von der Sakularisierungsthese. Lange Zeit galt die Sachlage in Bezug auf die Religion als geklart, doch mehr und mehr setzt sich das Bewusstsein durch, dass die Austarierung von Religion und Politik in Form der liberalen Trennungsthese in den westlichen Demokratien einer Neuverortung bedarf. Um diese Neubewertung soll es hier gehen. Dabei stehen sich John Rawls mit seiner Konzeption eines Offentlichen Vernunftgebrauchs" und Jurgen Habermas, der fur eine Neukonzeption des Staatsburgerethos und eine Neuverteilung der Lasten des Pluralismus eintritt, gegenuber. Bevor diese Diskussion zum Hauptgegenstand werden kann, bedarf es zu allererst einer begrifflichen Auseinandersetzung mit der Religion. Das fur das Verhaltnis von Religion und Politik allgemein zugrunde liegende Beziehungsgeflecht soll im darauf folgenden zweiten Teil erarbeitet werden. Hierzu gehort einerseits die Schilderung der Bedeutung der Entstehung des modernen, sakularen Staates, die auch einen ersten Begriff von Sakularisierung mit sich bringt. Andererseits kommt es hier auf die gesellschaftliche K

Why Are Women More Religious Than Men from the Author: Marta Trzebiatowska. Women are more religious than men in almost every society and religious tradition (both old and new). They are also more likely to pray, to worship, to believe in the afterlife, and to consult mediums, fortune-tellers, and horoscopes. This book presents comprehensive evidence for this gender gap in religiosity, discusses the competing explanations put forward by scholars and offers its own answer to the question: 'why are women more religious than men'? The keyargument is that as women's lives become less restricted by patriarchy and traditional religious norms, the gender gap is likely to decrease, or disappear altogether.

The Death Of Christian Britain from the Author: Callum G. Brown. The Death of Christian Britain uses the latest techniques to offer new formulations of religion and secularisation and explores what it has meant to be 'religious' and 'irreligious' during the last 200 years. By listening to people's voices rather than purely counting heads, it offers a fresh history of de-christianisation, and predicts that the British experience since the 1960s is emblematic of the destiny of the whole of western Christianity. Challenging the generally held view that secularization has been a long and gradual process beginning with the industrial revolution, it proposes that it has been a catastrophic short term phenomenon starting with the 1960's. Is Christianity in Britain nearing extinction? Is the decline in Britain emblematic of the fate of western Christianity? Topical and controversial, The Death of Christian Britain is a bold and original work that will bring some uncomfortable truths to light.

Advances In Cross National Comparison from the Author: J├╝rgen H.P. Hoffmeyer-Zlotnik. As the European Union grows together we are faced with an increasing number of European surveys and statistics that rely on national instruments or questionnaires. We lack valid instruments with functional equivalence that allow international comparative analysis. This problem is especially important in the case of demographic and socio-economic variables. The usual practice in comparative social research is to work with national questionnaires and classifications thereby making meaningful comparisons questionable. To overcome these problems this book offers rules of comparison, tested instruments and examples for the measurements of basic demographic and socio-economic variables. The book consists of five parts and a concluding chapter. Part 1 covers general problems and presents solutions for the harmonisation of data from different national and/or cultural contexts. In the second part EUROSTAT and ESOMAR present their established standard instruments. Tested instruments each covering one variable (i.e. occupation, education) are presented in the third part. The fourth part again includes suggested tools for the harmonisation of single variables for which standardised instruments are not yet available (i.e. age, religion, ethnicity, household, family, income). The last part presents selected empirical analyses demonstrating the use and fruitfulness of instruments presented before. This book is mainly written for two groups. First, researchers and practitioners involved in comparative research in Europe. Second, researchers working with data of the statistical offices of European countries and data from institutions of the European Union.

Sociology For Beginners from the Author: Richard Osborne. Sociology is the study of how society functions, or in some cases does not function.

Also outlines are the rapid expansion of sociology in 20th-century America and Britain, the post-World War II dominance of Talcott Parsons, the Chicago School, the rise of Structuralism, postmodernism, globalisation and digital society.

Classical Sociology from the Author: Bryan S Turner. In this book, one of the foremost sociologists of the present day, turns his gaze upon the key figures and seminal institutions in the rise of sociology. Turner examines the work of Karl Marx, Max Weber, Karl Mannheim, Georg Simmel, Emile Durkheim and Talcott Parsons to produce a rich and authoritative perspective on the classical tradition. He argues that classical sociology has developed on many fronts, including debates on the family, religion, the city, social stratification, generations and citizenship. The book defends classical perspectives as a living tradition for understanding contemporary social life and demonstrates how the classical tradition produces an agenda for contemporary sociology.
