This volume offers contributions against the oblivion to history of the current debate on consumption theory. With regard to the work of earlier authors, new arguments are provided in the current discussion about boundaries and paradoxes in consumption and the traditionally narrowly understood consumer role. It is partly about correcting errors about authors and works, partly about proving the topicality and fertility for the analysis of open questions and thus about improvements in sharpening the understanding of consumption and consumers in their living environments. The articles provide arguments for a paradigmatic realignment of consumer research and policy.
