9780801456633: French Sociology

French Sociology offers a uniquely comprehensive view of the oldest and still one of the most vibrant national traditions in sociology. Johan Heilbron covers the development of sociology in France from its beginnings in the early nineteenth century through the discipline's expansion in the late twentieth century, tracing the careers of figures from Auguste Comte to Pierre Bourdieu. Presenting fresh interpretations of how renowned thinkers such as Émile Durkheim and his collaborators defined the contours and content of the discipline and contributed to intellectual renewals in a wide range of other human sciences, Heilbron's sophisticated book is both an innovative sociological study and a major reference work in the history of the social sciences.

Heilbron recounts the halting process by which sociology evolved from a new and improbable science into a legitimate academic discipline. Having entered the academic field at the end of the nineteenth century, sociology developed along two separate tracks: one in the Faculty of Letters, engendering an enduring dependence on philosophy and the humanities, the other in research institutes outside of the university, in which sociology evolved within and across more specialized research areas. Distinguishing different dynamics and various cycles of change, Heilbron portrays the ways in which individuals and groups maneuvered within this changing structure, seizing opportunities as they arose. French Sociology vividly depicts the promises and pitfalls of a discipline that up to this day remains one of the most interdisciplinary endeavors among the human sciences in France.

About the Author:

Johan Heilbron is Director of Research at the Centre Européen de sociologie et de science politique de la Sorbonne (CNRS-EHESS) Paris and is affiliated with Erasmus University Rotterdam. He is the author of The Rise of Social Theory and coeditor of The Rise of the Social Sciences and the Formation of Modernity: Conceptual Change in Context, 1750–1850.

Review:

"In French Sociology, Johan Heilbron presents all the material one needs to understand post-Comtean and post-Durkheimian sociology. As in his previous work, this new treatment is balanced and reasonable, as well as trustworthy and comprehensive. It clears up long-standing confusions about the complex tradition Heilbron so skillfully unpacks."―Alan Sica, The Pennsylvania State University, author of Max Weber and the New Century



"This is a powerful work of historical sociology, intellectual history, and social theory. The book exemplifies a sort of eventful historical sociology of social science, in which internal struggles and external forces are brought together in subtle ways to tell an analytic story about the rise of an improbable discipline. The book makes a compelling case for the French sociological tradition from Comte to Durkheim and on to Bourdieu as the essential core of the sociological discipline.It provides a crucial addition to a small shelf of scholarly works available in English (and for that matter in French) on the history of French academic sociology."―George Steinmetz, University of Michigan andCentre européen de sociologie
