Chapter Summary

The chapter compares several methods and forms of representation from various academic disciplines to examine the social relationship and interaction between human beings. Thus, in contrast to the interdisciplinary paradigm of transdisciplinarity, it attempts to define interdisciplinarity through multiperspectivity. The chapter deals with the question of how to gain an understanding of human sociality that takes into account, in the description of social phenomena, the phenomenological difference between the humanity and inhumanity of human beings. The chapter inquires into the possibilities of finding an understanding of human sociality that is open to an empirically and phenomenologically correct description of human social life, while being able to account for the phenomena of humanity and inhumanity in hermeneutical and phenomenological terms. It argues that the answer to this question cannot be found by differentiating between human and animal sociality.

Keywords: human social life; human sociality; humanity; inhumanity
