The Creativity of Action by Hans Joas. Hans Joas is one of the foremost social theorists in Germany today.
Joas argues for adding a third model of action to the two predominant models of rational and normative action—one that joa the creative character of human action. This model encompasses the other two, allowing for a more comprehensive theory of action. Joas elaborates some implications of his model for theories of social movements and social change and for the status of action theory in sociology in the face of competition from theories advanced by Luhmann and Habermas.
The problem of action is of crucial importance in both sociology and philosophy, and this book—already widely debated in Germany—will add fresh impetus to the lively discussions current in the English-speaking world. Paperbackpages.

Oct 12, Christian rated it really liked it. Reads very smoothly for German social theory. Joas loves American pragmatism, particularly G. Mead and makes his work a jumping off point for his thesis on the fundamental creativity of human action.
