Quantitative Research on Inequality and Families
Prof. Dr. Josef Brüderl
Welcome to Prof. Brüderl’s Chair.
Our research and teaching program is mainly in the fields of Social Inequality; Private forms of life; and Quantitative Methods. Currently, a major data collection project is in progress at the Chair (The German Family Panel, pairfam).
The Chair follows the scientific understanding of empirical-analytical sociology:
- Sociological theories should be formulated in a clear-cut, precise manner and should be logically consistent.
- Empirical research follows the principles of critical rationalism.
- Empirically established relationships are explained by way of social mechanisms.
Every Wednesday during the semester we organize a research colloquium on “Analytical Sociology” and you are invited to join us. To see the current program, please click here.
