Never before published, American Society is the product of Talcott Parsons' last major theoretical project. Completed just a few weeks before his death, this is Parsons' promised 'general book on American society'. It offers a systematic presentation and revision of Parson's landmark theoretical positions on modernity and the possibility of objective sociological knowledge. Even after the passage of many years, American Society imparts a remarkably provocative interpretation of US society and a creative approach to social theory.

About the Author:

Talcott Parsons (1902–1979) was the eminent Harvard sociologist who sought to integrate all the social sciences into a science of human action. Among his influential books are The Structure of Social Action and Politics and Social Structure.

Review:

“This book demonstrates how Parsons attempted to develop a framework applicable to concrete situations. ... [American Society] helps remind readers how Parsonian structural functional can be used to illuminate how social crisis can be overcome. Recommended.”

Book Description Paradigm Publishers. Paperback. Condition: New. 537 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.Never before published, American Society is the product of Talcott Parsonss last major theory-building project. During the 1970s, Parsons worked persistently to fulfill his earlier promise to produce a general book on American society. The surviving manuscript, completed just a few weeks before his death, is just such a bookand much more. Beyond its rich reading of American society, it offers a systematic presentation and major revisions of his previous landmark theoretical positions: the attempt to elaborate a non-nostalgic theory of modernity, to link macro and micro perspectives, to defend the possibility of objective sociological knowledge, to analyze national specificities within the context of worldwide trends, to develop an adequate conception of societal integration grounded in fully pluralistic premises. Even after the passage of many years, the book imparts a remarkably provocative interpretation of U. S. society and a creative approach to social theory. This item ships from multiple locations.
