Journal of Classical Sociology
Publisher: SAGE Publications
The Journal of Classical Sociology is an essential new resource that focuses
on international contributions to the classical tradition. The journal
elucidates the origins of sociology and also demonstrates how the classical
tradition renews the sociological imagination in the present day.
The journal is a critical but constructive reflection on the roots and
formation of sociology from the Enlightenment to the 21st century. Journal
of Classical Sociology promotes discussions of early social theory, such as
Hobbesian contract theory, through the 19th- and early 20th- century
classics associated with the thought of Comte, Marx, Durkheim, Weber,
Simmel, Veblen. Pareto and Mosca, through to contemporary work, such as
network theory and transformations in social systems theory.
The Journal of Classical Sociology publishes papers that explore the
intellectually contested nature of social theory. Although sociology is the
primary focus of the journal, inter-disciplinary contributions from
psychoanalysis, economics, political theory, anthropology and cultural
studies are welcome. The Journal of Classical Sociology features special
review articles on key thinkers and debates. In addition there are extended
review articles to encourage critical discussion of newly published work.
The Journal of Classical Sociology features articles on:
concepts . theory . institutions . ideologies . traditions . methods .
