📙 Perspectives on Sociological Theory, Vol. 1: Macro-Sociological Theory by S.N. Eisenstadt (ed.), Horst Jurgen Helle (ed.) — free epub


Macro-Sociological Theory addresses three major shifts within sociological theory. First, institutional orders and their dynamics are increasingly seen as constructed by the activities of different actors, both individuals and groups. This is reflected in a shift to the analysis of the processes and mechanisms through which the social order, both at macro- and micro-level, is constructed. Second, and closely connected to the analysis of the construction of social institutions, is a greater emphasis on the autonomy of the major social actors.Third is the new focus on the dimension of power and the symbolic construction of reality in the creation of the institutional order.The studies presented in this volume confront some major controversies in sociological theory. The book will be of interest and value to all sociologists and social theorists.
