The article analyses the development and the current situation in sociology in relation to the transformations that contemporary society is going through. The author explores some basic sociological questions in an examination of the character of institutions and forms of social stratification, showing how deeply these questions are connected with the character of 'organised modernity'. He analyses the transformations of society since the 1970s and studies the concepts connected with the increase in insecurity and the decline in trust within society. In this context he analyses the concepts of social capital, networks, and trust. He shows that these concepts are incapable of establishing a link between the actors and the system as a whole. A sociology that dismisses society from the sets of strategies of individual action only contributes to the general trend of privatising the public sphere for the benefit of private interests.
