Virtue Ethics and Sociology by Kieran Flanagan

Book Description

This collection of thirteen specially commissioned essays expands a new intellectual terrain for sociology; virtue ethics. Using a variety of religious perspectives, of Catholicism, Protestantism, Hinduism, Quakerism, with considerations of Islam and the New Age, this engaged and topical collection deals with properties of virtue in relation to the person, celibacy, hope, and apocalypse, mourning, moral ambiguity. It also treats the concept of virtue in response to MacIntyre, Bauman, Weber, Durkheim and Giddens. It seeks to move sociology past the disabling effects of postmodernity.

Selfish, Scared and Stupid by Kieran Flanagan Selfish, Scared and Stupid, Paperback (September 2014)

Appealing to humans' basic instincts to increase influence, buy-in and results Survival of the species comes down to three basic instincts, say behavioural research strategists Dan Gregory and Kieran Flanagan fear, self-interest and simplicity.

Sociology of Spirituality by Kieran Flanagan Sociology of Spirituality, Paperback (November 2009)

The emergence of spirituality in contemporary culture in holistic forms suggests that organised religions have failed. This book explores and disputes this thesis in ways that mark important critical divisions. It explores the relationship of spirituality to the visual, individualism, gender, identity politics, education and cultural capital.

Sociology in Theology by Kieran Flanagan Sociology in Theology, Hardback (September 2007)

This is an original study of the sociological imagination in regard to visual culture. It explores the reflexive dimensions of choice over seeing or not seeing in relation to paintings, images and islands. Bourdieu, Goffman and Simmel provide the basis for insights into how reflexivity in sociology has unexplored theological implications.
