Series: Advances in Sociology Research
BISAC: SOC026000

The opening chapter of Advances in Sociology Research. Volume 28 focuses on the tension that runs throughout the history of humanist philosophy and science from the Renaissance to the present.

A practical guide to the new interprofessional leader is examined in the following chapter. Approaches and techniques are offered for effectively fostering interprofessional teams.

Next, the key modern issues of museum communication, either between a visitor and an object, or between a visitor and a museum professional, are demonstrated.

The authors go on to draw upon a general model of indirect leadership and a summary of two empirical studies. The results indicate that the containing function sensegiving contributes to a favorable organizational result.

The authors also highlight the impact of social media platforms and how they have changed the dynamics of Indian society, particularly focusing on recent protests, online suicides, pornography, hacking and infidelity

The penultimate chapter documents the history of social work in Andalusia through its academic and professional development.

A short overview of the historical phases in the Danish Welfare State development, including historical compromises between workers and farmers, as well as the Keynesian expansion of the Danish welfare states, is provided in the final chapter.
