  1. Yasemin El-Menouar & Melanie Reddig (2014). Olivier Roys Thesen Zum Islamischen Neofundamentalismus Auf Dem Prüfstand. Eine Empirische Analyse. Analyse & Kritik 36 (1):31-59.
    This paper tests three main theses by the French political scientist Olivier Roy concerning the social integration of Islamic neofundamentalists in Europe. Firstly, Roy assumes that Islamic neofundamentalists have a strong global identity, but only a weak national identity and are therefore uprooted. Secondly, Roy expects Islamic neofundamentalists to live segregated from the majority society and avoid respective contact. Thirdly, Roy presumes that Islamic neofundamentalists feel discriminated against. We test these assumptions with data based on a survey on different patterns (...)

  2. Karen Jones & François Schroeter (2014). Co-Deliberation, Joint Decision, and Testimony About Reasons. Analyse & Kritik 36 (1):209-216.
    We defend the claim that there can be testimonial transfer of reasons against Steinig’s recent objections. In addition, we argue that the literature on testimony about moral reasons misunderstands what is at stake in the possibility of second-hand orientation towards moral reasons. A moral community faces two different but related tasks: one theoretical and one practical . In between, simultaneously theoretical and practical, lies the activity of co-deliberation. Virtuous participation in co-deliberation can require limited moral deference. Refusal to recognize this, (...)

  3. Johannes Krause (2014). Schönheitssoziologie – Ein Überblick. Analyse & Kritik 36 (1):153-175.
    Everybody is Doing Beauty – women use make-up daily and men shave. The first section of this paper deals with the differentiation of the various forms of Doing Beauty. On the one hand some of these actions are part of the daily routine and carried out in a rather unconscious way. On the other hand there are a number of actions where the result is durable, intended and product of a rational process. However they have one thing in common: Doing (...)

  4. Dominik Morbitzer, Vincent Buskens, Stephanie Rosenkranz & Werner Raub (2014). How Farsightedness Affects Network Formation. Analyse & Kritik 36 (1):103-133.
    We develop a theoretical model of network formation where actors are limitedly farsighted. In this way we extend current models with a new set of micro-foundations. Computer simulations are used to predict the stable network structures that are likely to emerge under the new assumptions. The co-author model by Jackson/Wolinsky is used as an example. The co-author model formulates a tension between stability and efficiency when actors are myopic. Limitedly farsighted actors can overcome this tension but only if the network (...)

  5. Werner Raub, Vincenz Frey & Vincent Buskens (2014). Strategic Network Formation, Games on Networks, and Trust. Analyse & Kritik 36 (1):135-152.
    This paper brings two major research lines in current sociology together. Research on social networks has long focused primarily on network effects but meanwhile also addresses the emergence and dynamics of networks. Research on trust in social and economic relations shows that networks have effects on trust. Using game theory, we provide a simple model that allows for an integrated and simultaneous analysis of network effects on trust and for the endogenous emergence of the network. The model also allows for (...)

    The external appearance of a person is an important predictor for his or her social success. This finding has been verified by numerous – mostly social psychological oriented – empirical studies on physical attractiveness for many phases and areas of life. At the same time, sociological research on social inequality has hardly paid any attention to the social relevance of physical attractiveness. In order to begin to close this gap, the article provides insight into attractiveness research results and highlights the (...)

  7. Pascal Siegers (2014). Spiritualität – Sozialwissenschaftliche Perspektiven Auf Ein Umstrittenes Konzept. Analyse & Kritik 36 (1):5-30.
    Spirituality is a contentious concept in the social sciences. This is above all due to the increasing number of different definitions of spirituality that are used in the field. Some scholars argue that given this heterogeneity, spirituality is not an analytic concept. Scholars use the concept to denote forms of belief that are not part of conventional religiosity. Therefore, spirituality refers to transformations of religion in modern societies. This paper shows that spirituality is generally defined in relation to religion or (...)
