9780804726245: Politics, Sociology, and Social Theory: Encounters with Classical and Contemporary Social Thought

This book is built upon a series of critical encounteres with major figures in classical and present-day social and political thought. The volume offers not only a challenging critique of major traditions of social and political analysis, but unique insights into the ideas which Anthony Giddens has developed over the past two decades.


The volume includes discussions of politics and sociology in the thought of Max Weber, together with analyses of Durkheim's politlcal sociology and his interpretation of individualism and solidarity in modern societies. Various more contemporary figures are also subjected to critical dissection and appraisal, most notably Habermas, Foucault, Marcuse, Garinkel and Popper.


The work therefore serves as a comprehensive introduction to some of the main debates preoccupying the social sciences and politics. A number of unifying themes associated with Giddens's standpoint run through each of the chapters: the methodological reconstruction of social investigation, the reinterpretation of modernity and the reformulation of a critical theory of politics.


This book will be of interest to anyone concerned with the major dilemmas faced by social and political theory today, as well as those seeking to follow the overall trajectory of Giddens's thinking.

Review:

Politics, Sociology, And Social Theory: Encounters With Classical And Contemporary Social Theory consists of a series of critical engagements with major figures in classical and present-day social and political thought. It offers not only a challenging critique of major traditions of social and political analysis but also unique insights into the ideas that Anthony Giddens has developed over the past twenty years. Giddens has attempted to strike a balance between classical and contemporary theorists including politics and sociology in the thought of Max Weber, analysis of Emile Durkheim's political sociology, Comte and the origins of positivism, and essays on Parsons (the concept of "power"), Marcuse (One-Dimensional Man), Garfinkel (ethnomethodology and hermeneutics), Habermas (labor and interaction), and Foucault (the new French conservatism), and a backward glance at Fredrick Nietzsche and Karl Marx. Politics, Sociology And Social Theory serves as a comprehensive introduction to some of the main debates in the social and political sciences today. -- Midwest Book Review
