Main Currents in Sociological Thought synopsis
This is the first of Raymond Aaron's two-part treatment of social traditions - perhaps the ultimate work of its kind. The second volume, which deals with Durkheim, Pareto and Weber, is scheduled to appear in the spring of 1998.
More than reconstruction work, the study of Aaron, at its deepest level, deals with the issue of modernity: , Still constitute our categories of expertise, sweeping us towards an unknown destination? With his usual stern looks, Aaron looks to the main social thinkers to figure out how they answered this urgent question. The first part explores three traditions: the French Liberal School of Political Sociology, represented in Montesquieu and Tocqueville.
Comtemporary traditions, Durkheim predicted in the decemphasis of political elevation of social unity and consensus; the Marxists who assumed conflict between classes and placed their trust in historical necessity. An introduction by prominent French philosopher Pierre Mannet highlights the main pillars as a unique contribution to political philosophy as well as the history of sociologicalthought, Mahoney and Bryan C.
Anderson introduced the main currents within the Aaron Working Group. As a whole.
This work is the basic reading of philosophers, historians, sociologists and political scientists.
