Professorship for Theory Development with a Focus on Social Cohesion


The working group at the chair “Theory Development with a Focus on Social Cohesion” at the IfS of the WWU works on the development and application of a theory of multiple social differentiation with a focus on both synchronous aspects (analysis of topic-specific, current milieu and organizational practices in world society), as well as diachronic implications (evolution, evolutionary mechanisms, empirical social history as differentiation). The interactions between theory, heuristics and empirical analysis are processed in the course of the further development of "macroanalytical depth hermeneutics" as a variant of qualitative, hermeneutic research.
