    Resumé

    »Sozialisation, Sprache und szenisches Verstehen. Alfred Lorenzers Beitrag
    zu einer psychosozialen Methodologie«. The article is a guided tour to Alfred
    Lorenzer's proposal for an "in-depth hermeneutic" cultural analysis methodology
    which was launched in an environment with an almost complete split between
    social sciences and psychology/psychoanalysis. It presents the background in his
    materialist socialization theory, which combines a social reinterpretation of the
    core insights in classical psychoanalysis – the unconscious, the drives – with a
    theory of language acquisition. His methodology is based on a transformation of
    the "scenic understanding" from a clinical to a text interpretation, which seeks to
    understand collective unconscious meaning in text, and is presented with an illustration
    of the interpretation procedure from social research. Then follows a brief
    systematic account of key concepts and ideas – interaction forms, engrams, experience,
    symbolization, language game, utopian imagination – with an outlook to
    the social theory connections to the Frankfurt School. The practical interpretation
    procedure in a Lorenzer-based psycho-societal research is briefly summarized,
    emphasizing the role of the researcher subjects in discovering socially unconscious
    meaning in social interaction. Finally an outlook to contemporary epistemological
    issues is given. Lorenzer's approach to theorize and research the subject
    as a socially produced entity appears as a psycho-societal alternative to mainstream
    social constructivism.
