  • On Unmasking
    • Abstract: Abstract Peter Baehr’s The Unmasking Style in Social Theory (2019) is situated within the polemical tradition of attacks on intellectuals initiated by Julien Benda in The Treason of the Intellectuals (1927) and continued by Raymond Aron and Irving Louis Horowitz. It is argued that the most successful aspects of the book are not in its polemics but in its contributions to Begriffsgeschichte, the study of the changing meaning of concepts over time. Baehr’s nascent critique of a society of full transparency is the book’s great unrealized project.

  • Recognizing Rhetoric in Sociological Theory: The Unmasking Style in Social
           Theory by Peter Baehr
    • Abstract: Abstract This essay sympathetically reviews Peter Baehr’s welcome protest against the “unmasking style” of rhetoric in sociological theory, while expressing reservations about the alternative(s) Baehr appears to recommend. I briefly explore recognition, as an alternative rhetorical style, seeking a standpoint from which it might be possible to respond to valid and sincerely felt moral commitments in the unmasking style, while also leaving open possibilities for reconciliation.

  • The Renunciation of Robert E. Park: Myths about his Sociological Work
    • Abstract: Abstract Three pernicious myths that have been perpetuated about Robert E. Park merit our present attention. These myths are important because they now foreclose almost any chance of him ever becoming recognized as the true progenitor of the interactionist school of thought or of latter-day sociologist from building on his work. The first myth, which lays the foundation for the other two, is that he was a social Darwinist. The second and third myths, which directly follow from the first one, are that Park concocted a racist and conservative sociology. An inquiry into his sociological works published over more than a quarter of a century, however, reveals that these myths are based more on fiction than fact. Although these myths are widely maintained among present-day sociologists, they appear to be driven more by prevailing ideology than supported by hard evidence (i.e. the full written record of what Park actually argued in his sociological publications). This confusion underscores the danger of advocacy research, an approach currently in vogue in the field of sociology.

    • Abstract: Abstract The objective of this paper is to discuss the conditions of production and circulation of the book to understand the success and impact of Dependency and development in Latin America. Firstly, we highlight in which sense this book belongs to a broader intellectual tradition, i.e., the interpretative essays on Brazilian reality. Secondly, we investigate the transnational institutional trajectories of its authors that enable them to develop the comparative analytical perspective of the book. Finally, we reconstruct the publishing history of the book.

  • Essayism and Sociology in Brazil: Notes on Colonization, Slavery and
           Nation
    • Abstract: Abstract This paper discusses the Brazilian essayism of the first decades of the twentieth Century by identifying the key topics, and issues around which an authentically sociological imaginative horizon gradually has been built in Brazil. We argue that the issue of colonization, slavery, and the large-scale rural ownership constituted the ways which Sociology systematicity in Brazil by defining a common repertoire of concepts, categories and, methods. The arguments are developed in the following sequence: a) the analytic place of essayism in Brazilian social thought; b) the analysis of the theoretical proposals and, interpretative results achieved by three emblematic authors of the period – Gilberto Freyre (1900–1987), SergioBuarque de Holanda (1902–1982) and, Caio Prado Júnior (1907–1990). More than that, we draw the historicity of their ideas and, highlight some theoretical convergences and, divergences among them; c) the reach and, limits of these interpretations on Brazil considering their present-day relevance.

  • The Sociological Invention of Brazil: Essays and the Social Sciences
    • Abstract: Abstract This article aims to problematize the vision of Brazilian essayism from the 1920s to 40s crystallized by the social sciences and the uniformizing tendency of the different interpretations of Brazil developed through this form of sociological imagination. This analytical procedure is understood as a prerequisite for rethinking the status of the essay and its interrogatory capacity contemporaneous with the Brazilian social sciences and society.

  • Always Rational Choice Theory' Lessons from Conventional Economics and
           Their Relevance and Potential Benefits for Contemporary Sociologists
    • Abstract: Abstract The paper reconsiders the problem of whether traditional economics constitutes or comprises rational choice theory in the sense of a comprehensive economic model of and approach to human action and society. Rational choice theorists in economics as well as sociology and beyond claim that their theory and approach is founded in, derived from and justified by classical and neoclassical economics, especially its major figures. This reconsideration casts strong doubt on such claims to “rational choice” traditional economics. It argues and shows that both classical political economy and neoclassical economics essentially is or has no rational choice theory. This applies to virtually all the major economics classics and neoclassics, with some exceptions among their lesser counterparts. The paper aims to contribute to understand better the origins and rationale or lack thereof of rational choice theory and the economic approach to behavior and their implications for its sociological version. The rationale/benefit of this analysis and its finding for contemporary sociologists is three-fold. The first relating to rational choice sociologists is showing that classical/neoclassical economics is not rational choice theory and does not represent their theoretical foundation and precursor. The second pertaining to economic sociologists is demonstrating that conventional economics has elements of economic sociology, especially more than of rational choice theory. The third concerning other sociologists is to make them more familiar with the original ideas of conventional economics as distinct from their interpretations by contemporary economist pursuing the economic approach and rational choice theory.

  • The Interstitial Ascent of Talcott Parsons: Cross-Disciplinary
           Collaboration and Careerism at Harvard, 1927–1951
    • Abstract: Abstract The paper builds on Joel Isaac’s analysis of “interstitial” arrangements that generate scientific knowledge, and also draws upon the networking model of theory groups articulated by Nicholas and Caroline Mullins. I consider how the “interstitial academy” at Harvard, as well as Talcott Parsons’s navigation of it, facilitated his professional rise from a vulnerable young instructor in economics in 1927 to one of the most prominent social scientists in the United States in 1951. I examine Parsons’s engagement with curriculum-building committees in sociology and social ethics, in “the area of social science” and in social relations, as well as with undergraduate courses on institutions and on sociological theory, including a graduate student discussion circle, and with seminars on Pareto, on rationality and on “basic social science.” In some instances, Parsons’s involvement as a newcomer or junior participant led to important peer alliances, or to the support of higher-ranking faculty and administrators who sponsored his advancement. In other instances, especially as his ascent progressed, Parsons played the more powerful role of “indispensable hub” who gained stature by organizing cross-disciplinary interaction. Parsons’s interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration also placed him an initial administrative role that would prepare him to serve as chair of two academic departments. The final and most important outcome of the process of upward mobility was the creation of a “theory school” that elevated Parsons to a unique status as the most boundary-spanning theorist of the social sciences. The paper thus supplements existing accounts of the rise of Parsons while also offering a mode of analysis that might be widely applied to the careers of other social scientists, both contemporary and historical (e.g., to figures such as Jane Addams and W. E. B. DuBois), in diverse academic settings and national contexts.

  • Gino Germani and Sociology in Latin America
    • Abstract: Abstract The problem of sociology, from its origin, is to build and maintain significant correlations between sociological thinking and autonomy from other sciences. What characterized the evolution of sociology was not so much the object of study, but rather the need to make it autonomous. This debate has developed especially in Europe and the United States, while in the countries of Latin America actions have been taken to ensure that sociology develops and assumes a meaningful role in the academic context. This article aims to explain a) the phases that have characterized the development of sociology in Latin America; b) the role of Gino Germani in the renewal of sociology in Argentina.

  • Biology and American Sociology, Part I: the Rise of Evolutionary Thinking,
           its Rejection, and Potential Resurrection
    • Abstract: Abstract Despite long-standing prejudices against doing so, it is time for sociology to reconnect with its roots in biological and evolutionary thinking. Sociology emerged as a discipline when the notion of evolution was actively used in biology, geology, and emerging social sciences. Throughout the nineteenth century, many of the most prominent early European sociologists examined the social universe from an evolutionary perspective; and this perspective was borrowed in much of early American sociology in the last decades of the nineteenth century and in the first decades of the twentieth century. By the end of the second decade of the twentieth Century, however, evolutionary analysis was rapidly disappearing in sociology in the United States, and by the 1930s, it was pretty much dead. And for the remainder of the twentieth century, it was viewed with a great suspicion, especially evolutionary approaches that sought to incorporate ideas from biology into the field. Despite the revival of stage models of societal evolution and the emergence of new ecological approaches in the 1960s and 1970s, evolutionary ideas from biology were still rejected by most American sociologists though much of the twentieth century. In this paper, we first present the history of this rejection of evolutionary, with the goal of encouraging sociologists today to recognize the distortions and misrepresentations of Darwinian and Spencerian ideas that fueled intellectual prejudices for so many decades. These prejudices only get in the way of sociology in the twenty-first century, where biological ideas have begun to pervade the social sciences. Thus, American sociologists should now take stock and reconsider how much evolutionary and biological analysis can help sociology and, equally if not more important, how an informed evolutionary sociology can influence those in the other social sciences and even those in the biological sciences.

  • Quantifying Scholarly Output: Contribution Studies and Productivity
           Studies in Sociology Since 1970
    • Abstract: Abstract This paper identifies two contrasting approaches to the quantitative measurement of scholarly output, emphasizing the distinction between contribution studies and productivity studies. Contribution studies are those in which the investigator starts with a well-defined list of publication outlets, recording all contributions to that literature by all authors, whomever they might be. In contrast, productivity studies are those in which the investigator starts with a well-defined list of contributors, recording all their scholarly output, wherever it might have appeared. We apply this conceptual model to sociology by examining the key characteristics of 25 relevant studies published since 1970. Nine are contribution studies, twelve are productivity studies, and four are too limited in scope to fall into either category. We conclude by discussing the implications of the contribution/productivity distinction for sociology and other disciplines—in particular, the problems that may arise when contribution studies are used to evaluate scholarly productivity.

  • Academic Familism, Spillover Prestige and Gender Segregation in Sociology
           Subfields: The Trajectory of Economic Sociology
    • Abstract: Abstract Sociology is a multiparadigmatic discipline, increasingly feminized, but in some of the discipline’s subfields certain theoretical tools and methods dominate over others, and gender integration is stalled. Why so' I examine the intellectual trajectory of the new economic sociology to highlight the role of academic familism, disciplinary spillover prestige, and gender for privileging the networks perspective, over other intellectual currents, in the early developments of the subfield. First, academic familism in a form of cross generational mentor-mentee relationships reinforced networks-based research among early champions of the new economic sociology, such as Harrison White and Mark Granovetter and their students. Second, the network perspective thrived on spillover prestige from natural sciences, which also embraced the study of networks, as well as from economics. Third, alignment with methodological and gender hierarchies in the discipline of sociology privileged the quantitative male-led network analyses over other approaches, such as cultural or inequality analysis. Providing an interpretation of the history of economic sociology, this article also reveals the mechanisms that stall gender integration within sociological subfields despite broader trends in feminization of our discipline.

  • The More American Sociology Seeks to Become a Politically-Relevant
           Discipline, the More Irrelevant it Becomes to Solving Societal Problems
    • Abstract: Abstract The long-standing divide between sociology as an activist discipline vs. sociology as a science is examined in light of the current trend for American sociology focus on a limited set of justice issues resulting from inequalities and discrimination against certain categories of persons. Increasingly, this trend is pushing sociology toward become an activist discipline and, as a result, an ideologically-oriented discipline in its teaching and research activities. The outcome of this trend is the growing marginalization of those committed to sociology as a science in departments and academic meetings, resulting in demoralization of sociology’s scientists and their escalating concern over their fate in a discipline increasingly mimicking a social movement organization. Even more damaging to sociology will be a loss of respect inside academia and a loss of relevance among publics not sharing American sociology’s political biases. Furthermore, the chance for sociology to use its vast store of knowledge to help clients of all types solve their organizational problems will be lost if sociology is defined as a political rather than scientific enterprise. Sociology will thus willingly leave the vast resource niche for applications of social science knowledge to disciplines that know little about social organization (i.e., economics and psychology). Sociology will endure, of course, but it will not realize its enormous potential for reshaping societies.

  • The Uses of Pilot Studies in Sociology: a Processual Understanding of
           Preliminary Research
    • Abstract: Abstract The following essay examines articles and textbooks that define or operationalize pilot studies in order to detail a set of tools that are situated in the pilot study repertoire. This leads to a distinction between theoretical and methodological purposes, and ultimately suggests that the processes should be used in tandem for the creation of high-quality research. I propose a processual model of preliminary research in which cycles of pilot testing can help to develop theoretically and methodologically sound research. The intent is to consolidate the knowledge from a multitude of sources in order to propose a fleshed out understanding of preliminary work for the benefit of the practitioners and mentors of researchers in sociology.

  • Sociological Theory: the Last Bastion of Sexism in Sociology
    • Abstract: Abstract While great improvements have been made in women’s professional advancement in sociology, it is contended that enormous sexism remains in sociological theory books, and the courses (often compulsory) associated with them. This has a broad effect in all fields within sociology, giving students the impression that men are the sources (the only in earlier times). Women are included only late, in contemporary sociology and gender studies. Classical theory textbooks in use over the last 25 years were examined, some in many editions. The trend has been for women to be added in later editions, but with scant or no discussion of their views or comparison with those of men theorists. Well-known women may be included (Rosa Parks, Hilary Clinton) who are not theorists at all! Yet an adequate literature has been available for many years-books by women theorists and analyses of them by reputable scholars. Two tables are provided: one, a chronological list of these works (to dispel the excuse of lack of material), the second (alphabetical), of sexist classical theory textbooks. Finally, it is argued that this is a challenge for the profession itself, authors, publishers, and peer reviewers. Inclusion and competence are both called for.
