Návrat (sociologické) teorie do Čech? Východiska, stav a perspektivy
THE RETURN OF (SOCIOLOGICAL) THEORY TO THE CZECH REPUBLIC? PRINCIPLES, PERSPECTIVES, AND CURRENT STATUS
Languages of publication
This article concentrates on the development and interests of theoretical (general) sociology in the Czech Republic during the period 1990–2010. It examines the consequences of the postmodern influence and attempts to establish a ‘critical sociology’. Its main focus is summarising the key books and texts on the relevant theoretical areas (historical sociology, theoretical foundations of qualitative sociology, grounded theory, feminism, gender studies, and sociology of politics, etc.) The author sees the possible advancement of theoretical sociology in the growing interest of young scholars in general sociology and in critical sociology (often inspired by neo-Marxism). The article is also concerned with ‘sociological rhetoric’ and the essay form of writing.
