    The Organization of Markets2015In: Organization Studies, ISSN 0170-8406, E-ISSN 1741-3044, Vol. 36, no 1, p. 7-27Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Markets have sometimes been described as vastly different from and even opposite to formal organizations.But markets and organizations share a similarity as well. Both are organized – by the use of decisionson membership, rules, monitoring, sanctions or hierarchy. Market organization creates differencesamong markets, and specific dynamics, which can be explained by the actions and interactions of marketorganizers: profiteers, ‘others’, sellers and buyers. The concept of market organization is an analyticaltool, which can be used for analysing why and how markets are created, why they get their specific formand how they change.

    Alfred Marshall and the Concept of Class2010In: The American journal of economics and sociology, ISSN 0002-9246, E-ISSN 1536-7150, Vol. 69, no 1, p. 151-165Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to analyze Alfred Marshall's concept of class. Marshall's concept of class is not well-studied. His idea of class is different from what Weber and Marx have proposed. In contrast to many other economists, he has a discussion of class that is developed. It is shown that Marshall sees classes as made up of people whose work offers similar chances of developing their higher faculties. An integrated idea is that different class positions are associated with different discount rates of future outcomes. Marshall's class theory combines physical and mental components.

    Convaluations2008Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents convaluation as a form of social coordination. A Convaluation is a partial social order that is based on evaluation in which identities are formed. Order refers to the predictability of the world, and identity of humans to the question of who one is. Convaluation is a more general form of social coordination than markets, and it is argued that convaluation should be seen in relation to the two other basic forms, hierarchy and network. Convaluations capture how evaluations play a central role in identity formation processes. Convaluations are constituted by value, social structure, culture and identities. The paper presents six forms of convaluations that can be used for understanding empirical cases. The paper also makes two interrelated contributions. The first is the discussion of formation of identities in processes of evaluation, and the second is the idea of the partial order of convaluations.

    Forms of uncertainty reduction: decision, valuation, and contest2018In: Theory and society, ISSN 0304-2421, E-ISSN 1573-7853, Vol. 47, no 2, p. 133-149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Uncertainty is an intriguing aspect of social life. Uncertainty is epistemic,future-oriented, and implies that we can neither predict nor foresee what will happenwhen acting. In cases in which no institutionalized certainty about future states exists,or can be generated, judgment is needed. This article presents the forms by whichuncertainty is reduced as a result of judgments made about different alternatives in aprocess involving several actors. This type of uncertainty may exist, for example, aboutwhich artist is the best, which offer in the market is more valuable, which football teamis better than all the rest, or which research proposal will get a grant. The result ofdifferent forms of uncertainty reduction is increased certainty concerning alternatives inrelation to one another, such as good and bad, rank lists, scores, quality assessment, andBwinner and losers.^ Based on the result, uncertainty is reduced and action is facilitated.The forms are structural and comprise roles; may be legitimate in a smaller or largerdomain; and may exist in all spheres of life, as exemplified in sports competitions, inlabor markets, and in the ranking of universities. Three forms of uncertainty reductionbased on judgment are identified in this article: (1) decision, made by an authority; (2)valuation, by means of which order arises as a result of actors ascribing values; and (3)contest, by which an order is the result of direct struggle.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper uses the work and employs the tools of the German philosopher Martin Heideggerto attempt to improve sociology. Heidegger’s thinking is employed primarily to undo a paradoxof sociology. Sociology focuses on the social, but starts with the assumption of essentially nonsocialegos that somehow generate a social world. This ‘egologism’ has caused sociology tooccupy itself with a number of pseudo-problems. We argue that Heidegger develops what we calla ‘socio-ontological’ approach, which means that human beings are always already social and dwelloriginarily in a social world. To present this ‘social foundation for sociology’ is the contribution ofthis paper.

    Interview with Patrik Aspers: "Since There Are So Many Theories, We Should Focus on Really Good Empirical Research Instead"2016In: Economic Sociology, ISSN 1726-3247, E-ISSN 1726-3247, Vol. 17, no 5, p. 147-158Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Patrik Aspers is professor of sociology at Uppsala University (Uppsala Universitet). Maya Shmidt conducted this interview in Uppsala, Sweden, in September 2016. Aspers introduces readers to different academic paths by presenting his own experience of becoming a sociologist and comparing the structural and cultural differences between the American, British, and European academic contexts. During the conversation, Aspers discusses the field of economic sociology and highlights opportunities for interdisciplinary cooperation. Particularly, he notes that sociology has exported certain ideas to other disciplines, and due to the field's enduring tradition, extensive theoretical literature and ability to distinguish between and combine different research methods, there is no danger of "blurring" within cooperative efforts. Influenced by Harrison White's theory, Aspers develops a typology of different market forms. He argues that markets, when taken apart, do not look the same: they take different forms, and each requires its own construction of theoretical concepts that can account for the variety in the empirical reality. Aspers emphasizes the significance of clarifying and reflecting upon knowledge as elements of pre-study ("vorstudie") when it comes to qualitative research. He develops an empirical phenomenology method and presents it as a step-by-step procedure for conducting qualitative research.(1)

    Markets2011 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our lives have gradually become dominated by markets. They are not only at the heart of capitalistic economies all over the world, but also central in public debates. This insightful book brings together existing knowledge on markets from sociology, economics and anthropology, and systematically investigates the different forms of markets we encounter daily in our social lives.

    Aspers starts by defining what a market actually is, analyzing its essential elements as well as its necessary preconditions and varied consequences. An important theme in the book is that a whole host of markets are embedded within one other and in social life at large, and Aspers discusses these in the context of other forms of economic coordination, such as networks and organizations. Combining theory with empirical examples, the book cuts to the core of understanding how different markets function, the role they have played in history, and how they come into being.

    This accessible and theoretically rich book will be essential reading for upper-level students seeking to make sense of markets and their complex role in social life.

    Markets, Evaluations and Rankings2011In: Historical Social Research / Historische Sozialforschung, ISSN 0172-6404, Vol. 36, no 3, p. 19-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Markte, Bewertungen und Klassifizierungen. Starting from the problem of economic coordination, this article defines markets as a social structure for the exchange of rights in which offers are evaluated and priced, and compete with one another. It identifies temporality, the roles of buyers and sellers, the voluntary nature of trade, property rights and competition as key features distinguishing markets from trade and other forms of economic coordination. In order to function, markets require a shared understanding of a product, a common culture as rules of behavior and an agreement over the economic value of an offer. Finally, the article distinguishes between fixed and switch-role markets to show that it is necessary to speak of markets in plural.

    Order in Garment Markets2008In: Acta Sociologica, ISSN 0001-6993, E-ISSN 1502-3869, no 3, p. 187-202Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this theoretical article is to analyse the social construction of order in two connected markets in the production flow of the global garment industry. The consumer market is identified as a status market, while the production market is defined as a `standard' market. In a `status' market, order is maintained because the identities of actors on both sides of the market are ranked according to status, which is a more entrenched social construction than the commodity traded in the market. In a market characterized by `standard', the situation is the reverse: the commodity is a more entrenched social construction than the identity rankings of actors in the market. The study ties together consumption and production of garments through several markets.

    Performing Ontology2015In: Social Studies of Science, Vol. 45, no 3, p. 449-453Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ontology, and in particular, the so-called ontological turn, is the topic of a recent themed issue of Social Studies of Science (Volume 43, Issue 3, 2013). Ontology, or metaphysics, is in philosophy concerned with what there is, how it is, and forms of being. But to what is the science and technology studies researcher turning when he or she talks of ontology? It is argued that it is unclear what is gained by arguing that ontology also refers to constructed elements. The ‘ontological turn’ comes with the risk of creating a pseudo-debate or pseudo-activity, in which energy is used for no end, at the expense of empirical studies. This text rebuts the idea of an ontological turn as foreshadowed in the texts of the themed issue. It argues that there is no fundamental qualitative difference between the ontological turn and what we know as constructivism.
