Возникновение ценностей

Ханс Йоас

И широкая общественная дискуссия об изменении и утрате ценностей, и научные дебаты о либерализме и коммунитаризме не могут обойти вниманием вопрос о том, как вообще возникает приверженность тем или иным ценностям и каким образом эту приверженность можно усилить. Как ни странно, в современной социологии и философии на эти вопросы нет удовлетворительного ответа. Поэтому в разработке своей концепции немецкий социолог Ханс Йоас подробно анализирует более ранние решения, в частности, подходы Ницше, Джеймса, Дюркгейма, Зиммеля, Шелера, Дьюи, Тайлора и Хабермаса. Его собственное решение непосредственно связано с его теорией креативного действия.

Почему им можно, а нам нельзя?

Мишель Гельфанд

В одних странах, городах, компаниях и семьях люди спокойно относятся к 15-минутным опозданиям, мусору под ногами, мятой одежде, бурной жестикуляции, пререканиям детей с взрослыми и подчиненных с руководством. В других вас сурово накажут за малейшую непунктуальность, улетевшую мимо урны жвачку, лишнюю запятую в документе или непочтительность во взгляде. Почему в одних культурах жестко соблюдаются установленные нормы, а в других активно приветствуются независимость и инициативность? Почему люди соблюдают установленные нормы, порой вопреки здравому смыслу? Откуда вообще берутся нормы? Эти вопросы волнуют многих людей, живущих в эпоху перемен, в том числе и современных россиян. Автор книги, психолог Мишель Гельфанд, исследует исторические, социальные и экономические причины самых распространенных свобод и ограничений, а также анализирует преимущества и недостатки обеих систем – жесткой и свободной.

Coverage of stakeholder relationships, concepts of uncertainty and resistance, assessing change outcomes, and more provides readers with a solid foundational knowledge of change dynamics in organizations. Extensively revised and updated, this second edition provides new case studies on topics such as design of input solicitation, and current research in areas including the persuasive effects of sidedness or inoculation, and socially supportive communication. Improved pedagogical tools, streamlined organization of topics, and additional charts, graphs, and images reinforce efficient presentation of material and increase reader retention and comprehension. Examines empirical, theoretical, and conceptual approaches to strategic communication during organization change Explores key elements of change, appropriate communication strategies, and outcome evaluation methods Presents adaptive and programmatic strategic implementation models Provides studies of real-world companies and actual research on organizational change Debunks popular myths and clarifies misunderstandings of research and theory on implementation of change Demonstrates how Individuals, groups, and entire organizations can create change and influence implementation.
