    Yet how far has this theory got us? Is it still central to feminism, anti-capitalism, anti-racism, anarchism, and other radical social movements today? Richard Day shows how most contemporary movements attempt to develop new forms of self-organization that can run parallel-or as alternatives-to existing forms. Social Causes and Social Types. Durkheim's argument so far is a perfect example of his characteristic "argument by elimination" -- the systematic rejection of alternative explanations of a given phenomenon in order to lend authority to the "sole remaining" candidate. 12 He thus claimed to have shown that, for each social group, there is a specific tendency to suicide that can be explained.

    The Overall Rationale ‘Central Currents in Globalization’ will be an integrated collection of sixteen edited volumes mapping the subject of globalization. It is intended as a landmark collection that sets out the contours of a bourgeoning field that now crosses the boundaries of all the older disciplines in the social sciences and humanities.   The modern world’s landscape is marked by two seemingly inexorable and contradictory processes: on the one hand, the emergence of unprecedented state power, claiming competence over ever greater domains of human life; on the other, the rise of a self-assertive “society” aiming to liberate the individual from traditional moral, social, and political restraints.

    ‘Nature’, ‘environment’ and social theory • 17 opposing concepts – between the ‘natural’ and the ‘artificial’ – is one of the most central ways in w hich humans have and do. Modern theory - ranging from the philosophical project of Descartes, through the Enlightenment, to the social theory of Comte, Marx, Weber and others 3 - is criticized for its search for a foundation of knowledge, for its universalizing and totalizing claims, for its hubris to supply apodictic truth, and for its allegedly fallacious rationalism.
