DZIEŁO 'CHŁOP POLSKI W EUROPIE I AMERYCE', CZYLI O POŻYTKACH Z CZYTANIA KLASYKÓW
FLORIAN ZNANIECKI’S POLISH PEASANT IN EUROPee AND AMERICA - CONTEMPORARY ANTHROPOLOGICAL INTERPRETATION
Languages of publication
The aim of the article is to look at the thoughts of one of the most prominent Polish sociologists - Florian Znaniecki - and to ask the question to what extent they may be useful for present-day social and migration studies. The hypothesis furthered is that migration literature should go beyond the seminal book on Polish peasants in America by Znaniecki and Thomas and focus more on the Polish sociologist’s early thoughts. The article emphasizes the importance of cultural anthropology and culturalism not only in migration studies but also in a broad range of social studies, including the assessment of post-communist transition.
