“Neglected Links in Economics and Society“, a new book by Professor Dieter Bögenhold was published at the end of August 2021 by the internationally renowned Palgrave Macmillan publishing house (London).
This book deals with the Neglected Links in economics and society. These neglected links are the inner bonds and lines which keep the society and economy together and are almost interconnected although they are very often treated and discussed separately in different discourses. Contemporary discussion has forgotten to think universally and to integrate items into one common field of observation. Instead, too often particular items are studied and discussed as being independent of each other without acknowledging a broader context. The book gives an exemplary instruction on how to treat reciprocal links and how to work in an interdisciplinary way, which tackles history, sociology and economics at least. By so doing, the book also serves as an educational instruction for integrative and interdisciplinary science instead of recapitulating mono-disciplinary approaches. Discussion includes topics such as social and economic inequality research, limits of rationality, and orthodoxies and heterodoxies of economic research, as well as a discussion of the heroes of interdisciplinary thought.
Dr. Zulaicha Parastuty was hired by the Department of Sociology as a research scholar in August 2021. Dr. Parastuty works on an ASEA-Uninet-Project in collaboration with Prof. Bögenhold. The project deals with developments of the creative economy in Southeast Asia. The Department of Sociology welcomes the new colleague and is looking forward to her work.
