The emergence of sociological theory by Jonathan H Turner( Book )
53 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This scholarly text covers the first one hundred years of sociological theorizing, from 1830-1930, focusing primarily on Comte, Spencer, Marx, Weber, Simmel, Durkheim, and Mead. The text provides an in-depth examination of these early sociological theorists with biographical background, analysis of key works, major influences, critical insights, and also answers the question, "What do these ideas tell us about the basic forces that shape the social world?" Posing this question for each theorist adds a unique perspective to the text and distinguishes it from other sociological theory books. In addition, it also includes material on the enduring models and principles of the theorists' work that continue to inform sociological theory today
Theory and research on human emotions by Jonathan H Turner( )
17 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The sociology of emotions is now at the forefront of micro social theory and research; and increasingly, the dynamics of emotions are seen as one of the ways to link micro to macro-level social processes. For in the end, what drives people to create social structures and to maintain commitments to these structures is emotion. The papers in this volume represent a broad array of approaches to the analysis of emotions. Some come from well established traditions in social psychology and micro sociology traditions such as symbolic interactionism, expectation states research, interaction ritual theory, and power-status theory. Others come from more macro-oriented theorizing in Europe; another set comes from meso-level analysis of organizational structures; and still others come from the opposite end of the intellectual continuum and explore the physiology and evolution of emotions. The goal of the volume is to sample the range of work in an area that did not exist three decades ago in sociology and to see the theoretical and research programs that sociological theorists and researchers on emotions are pursuing. The sociology of emotions is now a broad-based intellectual movement, with the result that no one volume can fully capture the diversity of work being performed by sociologists. Still, this volume attempts to provide readers with a review of some of the more creative work on emotional dynamics in human groupings

"This book reviews the theoretical and empirical work in the sociology of emotions, with appendices on relevant psychological theories as they intersect with sociological theories.

The theories that have been developed within these diverse traditions are summarized, and illustrative empirical work using each theory is reviewed."--Jacket

On the origins of human emotions : a sociological inquiry into the evolution of human affect by Jonathan H Turner( Book )
13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Language and culture are often seen as unique characteristics of human beings. In this book the author argues that our ability to use a wide array of emotions evolved long before spoken language and, in fact, constituted a preadaptation for the speech and culture that developed among later hominids. Long before humans could speak with words, they communicated their emotional dispositions through body language; and it is the neurological wiring of the brain for these emotional languages that represented the key evolutionary breakthrough for our species."--Jacket

Handbook of sociological theory by Jonathan H Turner( Book )
21 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sociology is experiencing what can only be described as hyper differentiation of theories - there are now many approaches competing for attention in the intellectual arena . From this perspective, we should see a weeding out of theories to a small number, but this is not likely to occur because each of the many theoretical perspectives has a resource base of adherents. As a result, theories in sociology do not compete head on with each other as much as they coexist. This seminal reference work was brought together with an eye to capturing the diversity of theoretical activity in sociology - specifically the forefront of theory. Contributors describe what they themselves are doing right now rather than what others have done in the past. The goal of this volume is to allow prominent theorists working in a variety of traditions - who wouldn't usually come together - to review their work. The chapters in this volume represent a mix of theoretical orientations and strategies, but these theories are diverse and represent the prominent theoretical discussions in sociology today. Some areas included are: Section I : Theoretical Methodologies and Strategies Section II : The Cultural Turn in Sociological Theorizing Section III : Theorizing Interaction Processes Section IV : Theorizing from the Systemic and Macrolevel Section V : New Directions in Evolutionary Theorizing Section VI : Theorizing on Power, Conflict, and Change SectionVII : Theorizing from Assumptions of Rationality This handbook will be of interest to those wanting a broad spectrum and overview of late 20th - early 21st century sociological theory
