Sociological theory : contemporary debates by John Scott( Book )

22 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A consideration of the work of Talcott Parsons sets the scene for subsequent debates on neofunctionalist, symbolic interactionist, rational choice, and conflict theories, together with recent developments in structuralism and post-structuralism. This second editon has been re-cast and updated to give a fuller discussion of the syntheses produced by Anthony Giddens and Jürgen Habermas, tracing their lineage back to Parsons's framework. It considers the various views of modern society depicted in these syntheses and it reviews the wider debates on modernity and post-modernity. The central argument of the book is that advances in sociological understanding arise from the synthesis of rival ideas, and it concludes with an exploration of those areas in which sociological theory is in need of further development."--Pub. desc
Mirrors of privilege : making whiteness visible( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film advances the argument that with transformative learning, a dialogue for learning, changing, healing, and undoing race-based oppression can begin. It features the experiences and stories of White women and men who are social justice advocates. They have worked to gain insight into what it means, as White people, to challenge notions of race, racism, culture, and White identity development in the United States. Their shared reflections speak to the denial, defensiveness, guilt, fear, and shame often related to these issues and show how these responses can be replaced with solid commitments towards racial justice. The film uses art, theatre, movement, photographs, and music to amplify stories that share richly varied experiences and life processes informed by deep reflection and social justice action. The individuals' interviews are also enhanced by historical sources, spoken word, photographs, and video archives which serve to address systemic racist oppression

Corporate business and capitalist classes by John Scott( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and Chinese and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Large multinational corporations shape our lives to an enormous extent. How is the growth, power, and significance of big business to be explained and understood? Focusing on the issues of ownership, control, and class formation, Corporate Business and Capitalist Classes explores the implications of changes in the nature of big business, which affect both the businesses themselves, and the economic and political milieu in which these multinationals operate. Up-to-date empirical evidence is reviewed in a wide-ranging comparative framework that covers Britain and the United States, Germany, France, Japan, and many other societies, including emerging forms of capitalism in China and Russia. Unlike other specialist texts in the area, Corporate Business and Capitalist Classes relates its concerns to issues of social stratification and class structure. The first and second editions of the book (under the title Corportations, Classes and Capitalism) were enthusiastically received, and the present edition reviews new theoretical ideas and empirical evidence that has emerged in the ten years since the second edition appeared.; The text has been completely re-written and re-structured, and it relates its concerns to contemporary debates over 'disorganized capitalism' and post-industrialism
Conceptualising the social world : principles of sociological analysis by John Scott( Book )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comprehensive and authoritative statement of fundamental principles of sociological analysis integrates approaches that are often seen as mutually exclusive. John Scott argues that theorising in sociology and other social sciences is characterised by the application of eight key principles of sociological analysis: culture, nature, system, structure, action, space-time, mind and development. He considers the principal contributions to the study of each of these dimensions in their historical sequence in order to bring out the cumulative character of knowledge. Showing that the various principles can be combined in a single disciplinary framework, Scott argues that sociologists can work most productively within an intellectual division of labour that transcends artificial theoretical and disciplinary differences. Sociology provides the central ideas for conceptualising the social, but it must co-exist productively with other social science disciplines and disciplinary areas"-

Envisioning sociology : Victor Branford, Patrick Geddes, and the quest for social reconstruction by John Scott( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Envisioning Sociology is a landmark work, the first major study of the founding of sociology in Britain and the enormous contributions made by the intellectual circle led by Victor Branford and Patrick Geddes. Authors John Scott and Ray Bromley chronicle the biographical connections and personal partnerships of the circle's key participants, their international connections, their organization-building work, and the business activities that underpinned their efforts. Branford and Geddes fashioned an ambitious and wide-ranging interdisciplinary vision, drawing on geography, anthropology, economics, and urban planning, in addition to sociology. This vision was an integral part of a project of social reconstruction, a "third way" eschewing both liberalism and communism in favor of cooperation, redistribution, and federalism. Envisioning Sociology uncovers a previously hidden history of the social sciences, giving readers a fascinating glimpse into early twentieth-century social science and political economy, while demonstrating the contemporary relevance of the ideas of these underrated figures. Although Branford and Geddes failed to establish the grand sociology they envisioned, their ideas helped develop the theory and practice of community development, participatory democracy, bioregionalism, historic preservation, and neighborhood upgrading."--Publisher's website
