Elementarformen sozialen Verhaltens: Social Behavior Its by George Caspar Homans

By George Caspar Homans

Das vorliegende Buch von George C. Romans bedarf keines Vorwortes im üblichen Sinne. used to be Homans aussagen will, sagt er selbst: klar, folgerichtig und ausführlich. Es wäre deshalb unerheblich, etwa darstellen zu wollen, ob ich ihn auch richtig ver­ standen habe. Es wäre auch vermessen, wollte ich das mir Wesentliche aus seinem Buche herausstellen. Ich lehne dies als untunliche Einmischung in seine eigenen exak­ ten Gedankengänge ab, wie ich auch dem Leser zumute, daß er sich unbeeinflußt seine eigenen Gedanken über die Erklärungsvorschläge von Homans machen wird. Wie in allen Veröffentlichungen von Homans ist nicht nur wesentlich, was once er aus­ sagt, sondern wie und vor allem wo, d. h. in welchem Zusammenhang er selbst seine Erklärungen abgibt. Wie hat sich, so könnten wir uns allerdings fragen, sein wissenschaftstheoretischer Standort seit seinem Buche THE HUMAN workforce 1 verändert? Viele werfen Homans vor, er sei zu einem "psychologischen Reduktionalisten" geworden. Er ver­ suche, das Soziale mit psychologischen Erklärungen zu erfassen. Er hätte, welch ein Sakrileg, gegen Durkheim verstoßen, demzufolge das Soziale nur durch Soziales zu erklären sei.
