Beschreibung

C. Wright Mills' classic The Sociological Imagination has inspired generations of students to study Sociology. However, the book is nearly half a century old. What would a book address, aiming to attract and inform students in the 21st century? This is the task that Steve Fuller sets himself in this major new invitation to study Sociology. The book:
  • Critically examines the history of the social sciences to discover what the key contributions of sociology have been and how relevant they remain.
  • Demonstrates how biological and sociological themes have been intertwined from the beginning of both disciplines, from the 19th century to the present day.
  • Covers virtually all of sociology's classic theorists and themes.
  • Provides a glossary of key thinkers and concepts.
This book sets the agenda for imagining sociology in the 21st century and will attract students and professionals alike.

Pressestimmen

"Fuller is one of the most productive and critical writers in the history and philosophy of science and the social studies of science, technology, and society to use the title of his 1988 book. His current book is squarely within this tradition . . . Fuller raises significant questions concerning challenges to the concept of "humanity" posed by evolutionary psychology and the Darwinian Left on the one hand, and by developments in biotechnology and nanotechnology on the other hand."
