About this product
- DescriptionFranco Ferrarotti turns his considerable erudition and insight to issues of theory and method in the human sciences, arguing that sociological investigations have been limited by their preoccupation with quantitative methods of investigation. Crucial social problems, from drug addiction to terrorism, can best be addressed by rediscovering autobiographical materials and the value of the individual. Ferrarotti hopes to lead sociologists away from overly reductionistic, technical measurement of their subjects_an approach that has increasingly been problematized by the natural sciences_toward an examination of the domain of lived experience using methods that are both interpretive and historical.
- Author BiographyFranco Ferrarotti is Professor of Sociology and Director of the Doctoral Program at the University of Rome. He is the editor of La Critica Sociologica.
