Introduction to Sociology

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

This book, comprised of lectures given by Adorno towards the end of his life, provides an introduction to his historical and conceptual engagement with sociology. In these lectures we find a somewhat different Adorno from the author of the densely-wrought texts published in his lifetime." "These lectures were held at the time of the "positivist dispute" in German sociology, when Adorno was defending the position of the Frankfurt School against criticism from mainstream positivist sociologists. Adorno sets out a conception of sociology as a discipline going beyond the compilation and interpretation of empirical facts, its truth being inseparable from the essential structure of society itself. Adorno covers topics ranging from the purpose of studying sociology to the place of sociology in relation to other sciences, as he traces the history of the discipline and emphasizes that the historical context is constitutive of sociology itself." "This volume will be of interest to scholars, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates in sociology and social theory, literature and literary theory, philosophy, and cultural studies.
