This new volume of the SAGE Social Thinkers series provides a concise introduction to the work, life, and influences of Émile Durkheim, one of the informal “holy trinity” of sociology’s founding thinkers, along with Weber and Marx. The author shows that Durkheim’s perspective is arguably the most properly sociological of the three. He thought through the nature of society, culture, and the complex relationship of the individual to the collective in a manner more concentrated and thorough than any of his contemporaries during the period when sociology was emerging as a discipline.

Max Weber and the New Century

Page: 201

"The most profound and enduring social theorist of sociology's classical period, Max Weber speaks as cogently to concerns of the new century as he did to those of the past. Over the past seventy years, those special ideas that have become identified as ""Weberian"" have become especially pertinent to those who would analyze today's socioeconomic and cultural life. They offer the possibility of a more acute understanding of our immediate future than reliance on the ideas of any other social theorist in the pantheon. Alan Sica demonstrates Weber's preeminent position and lasting vitality within social theory by applying them to topics of contemporary concern. The result will appeal to experts and novices alike.Max Weber and the New Century documents the continuing usefulness of Weber's unrivalled social thought. Sica offers a series of linked studies that treat Weber's concept of rationalization as expressed in different cultural forms, the role of Weberian ideas in contemporary historiography, the uses of Weber's image in the popular imagination, the rhetorical structure of Economy and Society, and Weber's relationship to modern philosophical thought. Conceptually and practically, this volume is a companion piece to the author's forthcoming Max Weber: A Comprehensive Bibliography--a 3,600-item bibliography of works by and about Weber in English--which, for the first time, will allow scholars to explore the universe of Weberian analysis.Max Weber and the New Century is a valuable addition to the library of social scientists, historians, philosophers, economists, and students of intellectual history. It shows that Weber--the scholar as much as his ideas--continues to inspire fruitful social and cultural analyses."

Diese vielbeachtete Studie unternimmt eine umfassende Darstellung und Interpretation der Weberschen Staatstheorie. Sie rekonstruiert die über das Werk verstreuten Fragmente, zeigt die Herkunft der einzelnen Konzepte und ihre Bedeutung für die heutige Staatslehre. Andreas Anter weist nach, wie eng Weber sich an zeitgenössische Denker anlehnt - insbesondere an Georg Jellinek und Friedrich Nietzsche - und ihre Konzepte zuspitzt und modifiziert. Zugleich wird Max Webers Ambivalenz deutlich: das Schwanken zwischen einer etatistischen Haltung, die sich an der Staatsräson orientiert, und einer individualistischen Position, die nach der Freiheit des Einzelnen fragt. ”Anter hat eine von souveränem Überblick über das Umfeld getragene, auch stilistisch ansprechende Studie geschrieben, die für jede Beschäftigung mit dem Thema unumgänglich ist.“

Visions of the Sociological Tradition

Don Levine moves from the origins of systematic knowledge in ancient Greece to the present day to present an account that is at once a history of the social science enterprise and an introduction to the cornerstone works of Western social thought. "Visions" has three meanings, each of which corresponds to a part of the book. In Part 1, Levine presents the ways previous sociologists have rendered accounts of their discipline, as a series of narratives—or "life stories"—that build upon each other, generation to generation, a succession of efforts to envisage a coherent past for the sake of a purposive present. In Part 2, the heart of the book, Levine offers his own narrative, reconnecting centuries of voices into a richly textured dialogue among the varied strands of the sociological tradition: Hellenic, British, French, German, Marxian, Italian, and American. Here, in a tour de force of clarity and conciseness, he tracks the formation of the sociological imagination through a series of conversations across generations. From classic philosophy to pragmatism, Aristotle to W. I. Thomas, Levine maps the web of visionary statements—confrontations and oppositions—from which social science has grown. At the same time, this is much more than an expert synthesis of social theory. Throughout each stage, Levine demonstrates social knowledge has grown in response to three recurring questions: How shall we live? What makes humans moral creatures? How do we understand the world? He anchors the creation of social knowledge to ethical foundations, and shows for the first time how differences in those foundations disposed the shapers of modern social science—among them, Marshall and Spencer, Comte and Durkheim, Simmel and Weber, Marx and Mosca, Dewey and Park—to proceed in vastly different ways. In Part 3, Levine offers a vision of the contemporary scene, setting the crisis of fragmentation in social sciences against the fragmentation of experience and community. By reconstructing the history of social thought as a series of fundamentally moral engagements with common themes, he suggests new uses for sociology's intellectual resources: not only as insight about the nature of modernity, but also as a model of mutually respectful communication in an increasingly fractious world.

Deutschland und Amerika aus der Sicht Max Webers

Sieht man genau hin, lassen sich große Unterschiede zwischen der deutschen und der amerikanischen Gesellschaft ausmachen. Viele davon sind unter der Oberfläche verborgen. Max Webers historisch-vergleichende Soziologie ist für eine kausale Erklärung dieser Unterschiede bestens gerüstet. Max Weber interessierte sich sein Leben lang für verschiedenste Aspekte der Gesellschaften in Deutschland und Amerika. Seine elfwöchige Amerikareise im Jahr 1904 hinterließ bei ihm einen unauslöschlichen Eindruck und regte ihn bis zu seinem Tod zu einem weitgestreuten Spektrum von Themen an. In diesem Band wird keine Mühe gescheut, die zentralen Merkmale seines historisch-vergleichenden Ansatzes vorzustellen und ihren Wert für die empirische Forschung in verständlicher Weise darzulegen. Webers aussagekräftiger theoretischer Rahmen ermöglicht es uns, die bestimmenden Charakteristika beider Gesellschaften anhand vielfältiger Ursachen zu erklären. Darüber hinaus erlauben seine Begriffe und Verfahren, die Grenzen der jeweiligen politischen Kultur scharf abzustecken. Ferner werden, bezogen auf die Vereinigten Staaten, ihre religiösen Wurzeln eingehend zur Sprache kommen.​

An Invitation to Classical Sociology

Meditations on Some Great Social Thinkers

Category: Social Science

View: 1191

Franco Ferrarotti offers a series of profiles on sociology's most important classical social and political thinkers, covering eighteenth and nineteenth-century writers and concluding with the American economist Thorstein Veblen. This is a general introduction to the history of modern social thought as well as a study of each of these thinkers within his social and historical context. It is also an interpretation of them from a distinctly European social and philosophical perspective, treating as major thinkers some, such as Ferguson and Veblen, who are not typically included in the canon of classical social thinkers. Ferrarotti hopes to reinvigorate interest in classical theoretical concerns and to spark a discussion about the important legacy that sociology brings to bear on our understanding of human social action.

Ibn Khaldun's Social Thought

Category: Social Science

This book deals with Ibn Khaldun's social perspective of the major institutions: the family, education, religion, politics, and economics. The family is seen in its association with city life. The role of the family and education in the development of human personality is emphasized. Ibn Khaldun dealt with the social dimension of knowledge in its many ramifications. Religion is discussed by stressing the social perspective rather than the theological, especially the reciprocal relationship between group solidarity and religion. Moreover, social solidarity plays a dynamic role in the formation and decline of political groups. Even economic activities are culturally defined. Such activities have a great impact upon social interaction, especially in dealing with the value of human labor and socioeconomic stratification. In spite of its highly innovative appearance, the Khaldunian theory was a product of a long series of the Islamic-Arabic movements of thought.
