"'Norbert Elias was one of the most original minds in the human and social sciences in the twentieth century. The publication of his collected works is an extremely important contribution to the contemporary intellectual and academic scene.' - S. N. EISENSTADT, Hebrew University of Jerusalem"
Bloggat om The Loneliness of the Dying: AND Humana C...
NORBERT ELIAS (1897-1990) was one of the greatest sociologists of the twentieth century. He studied in Breslau and Heidelberg and served as Karl Mannheim's assistant in Frankfurt. In exile after 1933, first in France and then in Britain, he wrote his magnum opus The Civilizing Process. At its ill-timed publication in 1939, it received little note. Only after his formal retirement in 1962 was the book reissued in German and translated into many other languages. That, and a flood of other books and essays, made him an international intellectual celebrity towards the end of his long life. His whole oeuvre is now appearing in new scholarly editions in the Collected Works in English. ALAN SCOTT is Professor of Sociology at the University of Innsbruck, Austria; BRIGITTE SCOTT is a translator and editor for the Austrian Academy of Science's Research Centre on Mountain Research: Man and the Environment, Innsbruck, Austria.
