Generally Speaking

An Invitation to Concept-Driven Sociology

Eviatar Zerubavel

  • Highlights the mental processes underlying the practice of a "concept-driven sociology"
  • Champions a "generic sociology" that is pronouncedly transcontextual (transcultural, transhistorical, transsituational, and translevel) in scope
  • Emphasizes cross-contextual commonality and reveals formal "parallels" across seemingly disparate contexts
