Product Description

Product Description

A collection of reflexive, future Sociology papers on the Space Renaissance Initiative (SRI). This compendium eBook integrates discussion on popular music and space themes, with progressive social theory. 'The Astrosociological Imagination' shares some of the essentially humanist ethos of C. Wright Mills' 1959 classic text 'The Sociological Imagination' and seeks to synthesise social, personal and historical elements into a discourse analysis of the SRI. The work explores critically the conceptual precepts of Max Weber on rationalisation in contemporary industrial society in relation to environmental and socio-cultural developmental issues. The Space Renaissance Initiative is an organisation that challenges the parameters of our thinking in regard to human scientific, technological evolution. Collection includes: 'The Astrosociological Imagination & the Space Renaissance Initiative: A Discourse Analytical Perspective' and 'Nurturing Human Progress', an evaluation of the SRI's first International Congress in 2011.

The author, Stephanie Lynne has a special research interest in space and the popular music industry. Her ongoing work 'The Astrosociological Imagination', has been instrumental in defining the nascent sphere of Socioastronomy. The chapter 'Efficacious Duality: The Space Renaissance, Brian May & Rock's Innovative Educators' was added in June 2012.
