Another sociology: The future of sociology from a critical theoretical perspective

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt


During the second half of the 20th century, sociology
as a social technology in service of the welfare state
has been the predominant form, especially in
Scandinavia. The crisis of the welfare state has led
this form of sociology into a crisis as well. Instead,
I argue for a critical sociology contributing diagnostics
of the social pathologies of the modern state. Such an
approach can find inspiration in classical sociology,
but it is also important to realize that, today, we are
living in another modernity. A liberation from social
technology must thus include a liberation from
objectivistic methods.
