In the first chapter, the peculiarities of the American history and sociologic tradition are discussed. Moreover, the social, cultural, and intellectual atmosphere surrounding Mills has been described.

The second chapter includes the intellectual biography of Mills, and quotes the relationship of the sociologist with the environment he was living in. Consequently, it is seen that Mills is one of the most important and leading sociologists of 20th century American sociology, and he clearly detected the dominant tendencies in the American sociology and the problems that tendencies caused in the first half of the century.

In this respect, Mills was a vanguard source of the sociology literature that improved after him. Mills made a detailed analysis of the relations of knowledge and power in his time. Also, his sociological research challenge on American society, produced a detailed picture of it. Gazete ve Sosyolojik Muhayyile. Today the way sociology taught all around the world is still quiet eurocentric and canonical.

Moreover, the story of the milla of sociology by a couple of western thinkers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a result of Moreover, the imqginacin of the creation of sociology by a couple of western thinkers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a result of dramatic changes in Europe does not reflect the reality.

In contrast to this, through the history, there have been many both western and non-western thinkers concerned about the nature of human society. Ibn Khaldun is an outstanding one because he didn’t only write about the history of Berbers and Arabs but also in prolegomena of his work ”Muqaddima imaaginacin he made important points about the nature of human society and the fall and rise of dynasties with the concept of Muqaddimah.

La Imaginacion Sociologica

In this paper to contribute to the rising interest in Ibn Khaldun, I’ve tried to look at the classical elite theories and elite circulation through Khaldunian theory. The commonalities between C. Wright Mills and Herbert Marcuse — both social theorists who enjoyed a considerable public audience — are charted in this essay. Despite apparent fundamental differences over Marxism and “Big Theory”, their A specific limitation of their “New Left” philosophies and politics is each thinker’s problematic tendency to locate potential “freedom” in an increasingly narrow “private” sphere.


Synthesizing Proximate and Distal Levels of Explanation: Toward an Evolution-Informed Sociology. In this paper, we argue that despite the growing acceptance of psychological research by mainstream sociologists, the discipline of sociology remains largely averse to biology. This is because the kind of psychological research that This is because the kind of psychological research that sociologists now utilize tends to rely on the same assumptions of thought, action, and human behavior—broadly construed—that sociologists have on the whole tacitly endorsed since Durkheim’s seminal criticism of Kantian categories in The Elementary Forms of Religious Life: Namely, that fundamental categories of perception, though naturally experienced, are socially constructed.

This assumption is present in both psychological work on schemas and the dual-process model, which continue to be incorporated into sociological analysis at a growing pace. We further demonstrate how sociologists’ overall positive reception of this kind of psychological research was facilitated by two factors: We demonstrate how synthesizing biological research with sociological research can extend existing sociological work by focusing on the study of parenting and crime and deviance.

In these subfields, we believe sociologists can gain better understanding of their topics by moving from relatively proximate concerns to more distal ones. We conclude by asserting that seeing individuals’ decision-making styles and capacities as a product of both evolved and social processes can lead to the development of more robust and yet parsimonious models of action in the discipline.

Doing so need not make sociologists blindly endorse evolutionary approaches to human behavior, but start our theories with a view to both long and short history. Elites, Economy and Society.

Dall’oligarchia alle ” caste moderne “: Vengono inoltre indagati i fenomeni che hanno portato i mass media al centro del discorso politico. This, in turn, assigns to sociologists their major task, defined not only in the categories of understanding, but also of changing social reality. I believe that these aspirations are shared by some sociologists and artists alike.

A common field, in which they may be and, in fact, are attempted to be realized, is participatory theatre. iimaginacin

The practice is built on an assumption that theatre is not merely constructed by playwrights, directors, actors and audiences as fixed social and professional rolesbut rather created as a social and aesthetic space of both individual, and collective experience, which, in turn, may lead to a better understanding of the world and its complexity.

It may take on a variety of forms: Wtight the presentation, I intend to share some observations on the im possibilities jmaginacin participatory theatre, seen as an interdisciplinary and socially engaging practice, may offer to all the parties involved in terms of understanding, empathy-building and socio-artistic intervention.

Khrushchev, Nixon and the Birth of ‘California Cool’. This discussion traces a broad arc exploring: The witnesses of desire: Freud, Dewey, Mead and the contested relevance of sociology of psychoanalysis Abstract Countless contemporaries have turned to psychoanalysis to provide one another with accounts of their actions. Yet, many researchers are reluctant to consider this practice as a social phenomenon.

Following in the footsteps of Sigmund Freud, they think of psychoanalysis as the fruit of a discovery on the fringes of the social sphere, in a self-observation freed of the critical demands of others. Ultimately, this picture of asocial psychoanalysis is based on a Cartesian conception of the relationship to oneself, as this relationship is wrigyt as preceding any communication with others.

However, as John Dewey and George H.

Mead showed, self-observation, far from preceding communication with others, derives from it. The comparison dociolgica critiques of Descartes’ theory of the mind, by Freud on the one hand and by Dewey and Mead on the other, not only affords a better understanding of their distinctive features but also enables us—by showing that the mute avowal of desire in psychoanalytical soliloquy is an integral part of the coordination that partners of social actions accomplish by naming their desires—to replace sociolgca asocial conception of psychoanalysis with a more realistic understanding.
