Ihr Verhältnis jedoch charakterisiert er nicht abschließend. Zweitens konzediert er, dass es unter bestimmten Bedingungen „bottom-up“-Einflüsse von individuellen Lebensläufen auf gesellschaftliche Strukturen geben könne, dass individuelles Handeln also potentiell strukturbildende Kräfte entfalte – er spricht von Lebensläufen als Phänomenen, die „structurally determined and structure-generating“ sind (Levy 1996: 84). Aber rein individuellen, im Aggregat allenfalls in Spuren auffindbaren Innovationen spricht er weitaus weniger Wirkungsmacht zu als kollektiven Abweichungen, in deren Folge strukturelle Zwänge gemeinsam interpretiert und evtl.

Zum anderen werden personale Identitäten immer weniger als Substanzen und immer mehr als Prozesse verstanden. Lebenslaufforschung bezieht sich in unterschiedlichster Weise auf Konzepte personaler Identität. Strukturorientierte Ansätze wie der von Mayer geben diesem Themenkreis kaum Raum im Gegensatz zu solchen, die in phänomenologisch-konstruktivistischer Tradition argumentieren. In der Biographieforschung wiederum spielt personale Identität eine zentrale Rolle, da sie Gegenstand der biographischen Konstruktion ist: „In der ‚biographischen Gesamtkonstruktion’ (Lebensgeschichten) sind autonome und heteronome Konstrukte zu Identitäten aufgebaut, die die Gegenwartsperspektive mit spezifischen Horizonten der Vergangenheit und Zukunft im Rahmen der Lebenszeit konstituieren“ (Fischer 1982/1986: 157, Hervorh.

Es bestehen Auslegungsspielräume und die objektiven, den Handelnden gegenübertretenden Strukturen bilden „lediglich das Material […], das einzelne ‚Biographieträger’ modifizierend zu übernehmen haben“ (Fischer 1982/1986: 166). 15 Eine interessante, auf die wichtigsten Argumente reduzierte Auseinandersetzung um die beiden Konzepte findet sich in Mayer et al. (1988). Fuchs-Heinritz (2000) gibt einen Überblick über Praxis und Methoden der Biographieforschung, und eine Diskussion um den „biographical turn“ in den Sozialwissenschaften.
