Structures of a life-work

a reconstruction of the oeuvre of Thomas Luckmann

Jochen Dreher, Andreas Göttlich

pp. 27-49

The following is a transcript of an interview with Thomas Luckmann which was conducted in two sessions on the 22nd and 23rd of June 2015 at his home in Kärnten, Austria. It opens up a retrospective on the widely spread scientific life work of the famous sociologist, who has left impressive marks on the academic field. He is specifically known for his renewal of the field of sociology of knowledge and on this basis the establishment of a general sociological theory. Monographs like The Social Construction of Reality (together with Peter L. Berger), The Invisible Religion, or The Structures of the Life-World (with Alfred Schutz) have each wielded significant influence and are till this day standard literature in their particular disciplines.
