Deutsche Fassung


The term “lifeworld” has become a central concept in historical-anthropological research. However, it is often used without reflection. There can be no talk of a consensual definition of lifeworld, given the concept’s very complex origins and diversity. It is productive to work with individual lifeworlds.
