Der Schwarze Schwan

Publisher: Albrecht Knaus Verlag
ISBN: 9783641171933
Release Date: 2015-11-02
Genre: Social Science

Talebs Weltbestseller endlich wieder im Handel erhältlich. „Der Schwarze Schwan: Die Macht höchst unwahrscheinlicher Ereignisse“ und „Der Schwarze Schwan: Konsequenzen aus der Krise“ erstmals komplett in einem Band und eingeleitet mit einem neuen Essay des Autors. Nassim Nicholas Talebs Definition ist weltberühmt geworden: Ein “Schwarzer Schwan” ist ein Ereignis, auf das drei Dinge zutreffen: Es ist erstens ein Ausreißer – es liegt außerhalb der regulären Erwartungen, nichts in der Vergangenheit weist darauf hin. Es hat zweitens enorme Auswirkungen. Drittens bringt uns die menschliche Natur dazu, im Nachhinein Erklärungen für sein Eintreten zu konstruieren, um es erklärbar und vorhersagbar zu machen. In diesem bahnbrechenden Buch, das mittlerweile weltweit zum Klassiker geworden ist, entwickelt Taleb seine einflussreiche Denkfigur und Maxime für die ungewisse Realität, in der wir leben und handeln.

Grounded theory

Author: Barney G. Glaser
Publisher:
ISBN: 3456849060
Release Date: 2010
Genre:

Der Klassiker über den qualitativen Forschungsansatz der "Grounded Theory", geschrieben von den Entwicklern dieser Methode "Obwohl unser Buch sich in erster Linie an Soziologen richtet, glauben wir, dass es jedem nutzen kann, der daran interessiert ist, soziale Phänomene zu untersuchen politischer, pädagogischer, wirtschaftlicher, industrieller oder welcher Art auch immer." In der Tat ist "Grounded Theory" quer durch die wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen zum Standardbegriff der qualitativen Sozialforschung ge - worden. Die inzwischen zum Klassiker avancierte Arbeit von Glaser und Strauss eröffnet eine lehrbare und auch lernbare Forschungsstrategie. Das Konzept bietet eine Antwort auf das Problem, die oft schmerzlich empfundene Lücke zwischen empirischer Forschung und Theorie zu schliessen.
