Reseña del editor:

This collection of essays reflects a new, distinctively rigorous engagement with W. E. B. DuBois's theoretical and philosophical thought. It includes the first publication of DuBois's important critical essay on the conceptual foundations of sociology as a science, "Sociology Hesitant." Taking its title from that 1905 essay, Sociology Hesitant draws attention to the ways in which DuBois's thinking about the "Negro problem" was an explicit effort to think about the problem of historical agency.Spanning a wide array of disciplines, from German studies and sociology to literary criticism, philosophy, and anthropology, with contributions from some of the most outstanding scholars in these fields, Sociology Hesitant contributes to the recognition of DuBois as an important historical figure by focusing on the complexity of his theoretical work. These essays offer an extended interaction with the ideas and projects DuBois formulated in a series of essays written between 1887 and 1910 that take up intricate questions concerning the nature of methodology and the theory of knowledge. Using DuBois's work as a point of departure, contributors explore current thinking about diverse subjects such as geopolitics and postcolonialism. Demonstrating that engaging the question of race requires rethinking the historical nature of theoretical understanding, this collection brings to light the notion that the struggle for equality is a struggle for freedom of thought in pursuit of truth.Contributors. Kenneth Barkin, Nahum Chandler, Ronald Judy, David Krell, Charles Lemert, Sieglinde D. Lemke, Tommy Lott, Kevin Miles, Abdulkarim Mustapha, Ken Warren
