Current Perspectives in Social Theory presents essays on major issues in contemporary theoretical sociology, providing both critical overviews of major debates and original contributions by specialists working in social theory, sociological theory, and critical theory.
While the series presents a forum for a wide range of theoretical issues in sociology and related disciplines, each volume collects contributions that share a common orientation, theme or challenge. Authors are encouraged to address and assess the continuing relevance of classical and twentieth-century contributions to social theory, as individual societies as well as human civilization continue to undergo changes at an accelerating pace; to apply earlier theories to current conditions, in the interest of taking steps toward recognizing and capturing novel phenomena and trends; to present innovative strategies for reformulating both formal and substantive responsibilities that have been at the core of sociology, as well as other social sciences; to circumscribe emerging concerns that should guide social research; and to frame social theory in ways that are conducive to overcoming methodological hurdles which have burdened the facility of social scientists to inform successful practical responses to concrete social, political, cultural and economic problems and challenges.
