Public Lecture and "Meet the Expert"

Prof. Jürgen Schriewer (Berlin): "Comparative Social Science: Characteristic Problems and Changing Problem Solutions"

Public Lecture: 02.02.2015, 17:30 - 19:00

Seminargebäude, Room S22, (Building 106)

The lecture tried to trace some of the fundamental problems that the comparative social and cultural sciences have had to cope with since their emergence and gradual consolidation, in the course of the nineteenth century. To this end, the lecture adopted a historical line of analysis. This approach was meant to throw into relief the succession of constitutive problems, varying problem solutions, resultant follow-up problems, and the corresponding present-day debates.
