Positivism, Presupposition and Current Controversies (Theoretical Logic in Sociology) - Theoretical Logic in Sociology (Paperback)Jeffrey C. Alexander (author)
- We can order this
This volume begins by challenging the bases of the recent scientization of sociology. Then it challenges some of the ambitious claims of recent theoretical debate. The author not only reinterprets the most important classical and modern sociological theories but extracts from the debates the elements of a more satisfactory, inclusive approach to these general theoretical points.
