Abstract

According to some social theorists, we are ?at the end of the social?. This book argues that such pronouncements may be premature, as we need to reengage with what sociologists have previously meant by ?the social?. ?Rethinking the Social? is the first book to systematically analyse the different concepts of the social developed by Durkheim, Marx and Weber. It examines how the concept of the social became unproblematic for twentieth-century writers and suggests that debates surrounding this concept remain very much alive. Building on A. N. Whitehead?s work, Halewood develops a novel ?philosophy of the social?.
