Description - Sustainability and the Social Sciences by Thomas Jahn

Exploring how the concept of sustainability might be applied in each of the social sciences, this book argues that environmental questions will increasingly dominate humanity in the course of the 21st century. This holds out the opportunity, and practical necessity, to stimulate new lines of theoretical development within the social sciences and new forms of intellectual cooperation across them. Taking sustainability as the common term of reference, the book seeks to: clarify the meaning and analytical implications of sustainability from a social sciences perspectve; explore the contributions of different social science disciplines to the sustainability debate; and suggest how to promote a reorientation of the social sciences themselves. The contributors include Rosi Braidotti.
