Die Économie des conventions (EC) ist das erste erfolgreich etablierte wirtschaftssoziologische Paradigma, das in Frankreich aus einer Kooperation zwischen Wirtschaftswissenschaftlern und Soziologen entstanden ist. Die EC hat konzeptionelle Probleme der Wirtschaftstheorie in innovativer Weise aufgegriffen und wird nun international rezipiert. Sie stellt heute einen prominenten Teil der neuen französischen Sozialwissenschaften dar. Im Zentrum steht eine pragmatische Handlungstheorie, die auf das Konzept der Konvention bezogen wird, um die gelingende Handlungskoordination und kollektive Qualitätskonstruktion zu analysieren. Die EC kann insbesondere als ein institutionalistischer Ansatz aufgefasst werden, der neue Perspektiven auf Organisation und Markt, aber auch auf Kognition und ökonomische Regeln eröffnet. Der Band systematisiert die Entwicklung der EC, stellt die verschiedenen wirtschaftssoziologischen Anwendungsbereiche dar und führt in die wichtigen Grundkonzepte wie interpretative Rationalität, Investition in Formen, Pluralität der Konvention, Qualitätskonventionen und Produktionsmodelle ein.

"An excellent guidebook through different approaches to social science measurement, including the all-important route-maps that show us how to get there." - Roger Jowell, City University "In this wide-ranging collection of chapters, written by acknowledged experts in their fields, Outhwaite and Turner have brought together material in one volume which will provide an extremely important platform for consideration of the full range of contemporary analytical and methodological issues." - Charles Crothers, Auckland University of Technology This is a jewel among methods Handbooks, bringing together a formidable collection of international contributors to comment on every aspect of the various central issues, complications and controversies in the core methodological traditions. It is designed to meet the needs of those disciplinary and nondisciplinary problem-oriented social inquirers for a comprehensive overview of the methodological literature. The text is divided into 7 sections: Overviews of methodological approaches in the social sciences Cases, comparisons and theory Quantification and experiment Rationality, complexity and collectivity Interpretation, critique and postmodernity Discourse construction Engagement. Edited by two leading figures in the field, the Handbook is a landmark work in the field of research methods. More than just a 'cookbook' that teaches readers how to master techniques, it will give social scientists in all disciplines an appreciation for the full range of methodological debates today, from the quantitative to the qualitative, giving them deeper and sharpen insights into their own research questions. It will generate debate, solutions and a series of questions for researchers to exploit and develop in their research and teaching.

One of the very first books to explore the role of the social sciences in historical, sociological, and global perspectives, it does so by analyzing the practical making and discursive aspects of social scientific disciplines, including sociology, economics, psychology, business and administration studies, social gerontology, gender studies, educational science, geography, and political science. It looks at them not only in their academic setting but also in extra-academic contexts and in a broader global setting. The volume includes 15 chapters written by an international and multidisciplinary group of scholars. The overall aim of the book is to encourage a contextual and reflexive understanding of the complex and dynamic relationship between the social sciences and society of the past and in today’s globalized world. It is concerned with the bonds between the social sciences and society at large, including themes such as gender and power, science and politics, academic boundaries and global power relations, and postcolonial perspectives.
