Social constructionism and social inequality. I sometimes wonder,If I were to propose redefining sociology as “thestudy of social inequality,”would I be far off the mark?

Social constructionism and social inequality

Consider the confer-ence themes of the 1998,2000,and 2002 annual meetings of the AmericanSociological Association:“Inequality and Social Policy”; “Oppression,Domination,and Liberation”; “Allocation Processes and Ascription.”There is,however,another major trend in sociology:increasing attentionto meaning and interpretation. Qualitative,interpretive approaches to study-ing social life have proliferated. Symbolic interactionism,ethnomethodol-ogy,phenomenology,frame analysis,narrative analysis,discourse analysis,cognitive sociology,cultural studies,postmodernism—these and other inter-pretive perspectives have gained popularity and some acceptance. Meaning is not inherent and that meaning is central to social life have captured the imaginations of sociolo-gists and social scientists of many stripes.

Consequences of Pragmatism: Essays, 1972-1980 - Richard Rorty

The author is a pragmatist in the tradition of Dewey. He sees that tradition as related in some ways to logical positivism (in that it "answers" some traditional questions of philosophy by saying that they aren't worth asking) and related in other ways to the tradition that he describes as "textualism": people like Derrida and Foucault. The book is a collection of previously published essays, with a long introduction on what pragmatism is. Vladimir Propp. Biography[edit] Vladimir Propp was born on April 17, 1895 in St.

The Government's 'allegiance' law sends us back to the Middle Ages - The Drum

Tony Abbott's language has become quite medieval lately, reframing the national security debate as a battle to the death between good (him) and evil (the Daesh death cult). He described the proposed citizenship revocation law as a "modern form of banishment". So it's interesting to discover in that law the appearance of the concept of "allegiance to Australia". Section 33AA of the proposed law says that dual citizens will renounce their Australian citizenship if they act "inconsistently with their allegiance to Australia" by engaging in certain conduct.
