  • The Dialogical Turnby Charles Camic; Hans Joas

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2003; US$ 41.99

    Since its birth, sociology has struggled vainly to achieve an encompassing intellectual 'synthesis' as it has fought against the explosion of ideas about the social world. This volume considers an alternative response that has recently developed to conditions of intellectual fragmentation: 'the dialogical turn,' a sociological approach that welcomes... more...

  • The Social after Gabriel Tardeby Matei Candea

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 49.95

    The social sciences and humanities are now being swept by a Tardean revival, a rediscovery and reappraisal of the work of this truly unique thinker, for whom ?everything is a society and every science a sociology?.

  • 44 Letters From the Liquid Modern Worldby Zymunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 19.95

    This liquid modern world of ours, like all liquids, cannot stand still and keep its shape for long. Everything keeps changing - the fashions we follow, the events that intermittently catch our attention, the things we dream of and things we fear. And we, the inhabitants of this world in flux, feel the need to adjust to its tempo by being ‘flexible'... more...

  • Freud and American Sociologyby Philip Manning

    Wiley 2013; US$ 24.95

    Although Freud's impact on social science - and indeed 20th century social thought - has been extraordinary, his impact on American sociology has been left relatively unexplored. This ground-breaking book aims to fill this knowledge gap. By examining the work of pioneers such as G.H.Mead, Cooley, Parsons and Goffman, as well as a range of key contemporary... more...

  • Conflicts in Social Scienceby Anton Van Harskamp

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 180.00

    Through detailed case studies, the contributors look at conflicts in social science arguing that they must be resolved at the level of the individual discipline rather than at the level of philosopy.

  • Marxism and Realismby Sean Creaven

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 54.95

    This book rethinks Marx's sociology as a form of realist social theory, extending Roy Bhaskar's philosophical realism into the social sciences. By constructing historical materialism as realist social theory, it becomes possible to resolve many long standing dilemmas in Marxist discourse, such as voluntarism versus determinism and humanism versus economism. more...
