Organizing, interaction and society
7.5 ECTS credits
The Simmelean perspective on organising is presented. For the purpose of making empirical connections to the theoretical frames, three central sociological field studies are studied: Foot Whyte's, Street Corner Society, Moss Kanter's Men and Women of the Corporation and Jackall's Moral Maze: The world of corporate managers. The point is to show how Simmel's theories can be used in different empirical fields. Students find their own examples and apply sociological organisation theory.
