Despite class being one of the main characteristics of society, the study of class seems to be noticeably disappearing from social sciences. The following text is divided into two parts. The first is devoted to the class in general and the author deliberately focuses on authors whose contribution to the class theory has not been fully appreciated and also on those who represent the cultural turn in the study of class. This choice represents an alternative to the dominant stratification theory and research based solely on the connection between class and occupation. She suggests multidimensional conceptual frames of class that take into account also the categories of lifestyle and inequalities created alongside the axes of gender, ethnicity and age. In the second part of the text the author focuses on the working class. The process of definition and specification of this broad and diverse category is also the object of my interest. She is interested in the existence of the working class under the conditions of the post-industrial society in post-communist countries. Against the background of the rich tradition of international research my goal is to highlight the conceptual and methodological changes of the understanding of the working class. The author argues for the importance of research on working class and she foreshadows the possible research heading in this diverse and rich field.
