Individuum, Gruppe und Gesellschaft. Unmittelbare und mittelbare Kontexteffekte und deren Bedeutung für die Theorie der Sozialpolitik

Abstract

The current theory of social policy is characterized by considerable inconsistencies and analytical gaps. Disciplinary one-sidedness goes together with nontransparent and partially incompatible epistemological considerations. In this paper, it is shown that the Gestalt theory can be a sound starting point for the theory of social policy. Gestalt theory provides a groundwork for the selection of behavioral assumptions, the understanding of self-organization processes and the formulation of basic normative questions.
