The talk unfolds mundane events in the light of the members‘ methodical responses to pressing tasks. It discusses the practical as well as analytical status of climate change as an omnipresent existential problem, questioning the reproduction of society. This is why the events implicate the sociologists in various membership categories: as bystander, participant, and contemporary.
Thomas Scheffer is professor for sociology with an emphasis on interpretative social research.
