Experimentalism and Sociology From Crisis to Experience

Has society become a ›real-world laboratory‹? Tanja Bogusz asks this question in her book as she traces back the experimentalist approach from early American pragmatism to contemporary world society. She recommends that sociology, as a discipline, transforms from a science of crisis towards an experimental science of experience, focusing on heterogeneous cooperation to overcome the epistemic disparities of our time. The speakers will discuss the book’s core ideas, as well as its impact on current global challenges.

Springer Nature is delighted to invite you to join the author and the internationally renowned panellists at this online event.
