About this product
- DescriptionModern antisemitism and the modern discipline of sociology t only emerged in the same period, but - antagonism and hostility between the two discourses twithstanding - also overlapped and complemented each other. Sociology emerged in a society where modernisation was often perceived as destroying unity and social cohesion. Antisemitism was likewise a response to the modern age, offering in its vilifications of the Jew an explanation of society's deficiencies and crises. Antisemitism and the Constitution of Sociology is a collection of twelve essays providing a comparative analysis of modern antisemitism and the rise of sociology. This volume addresses three key areas: the strong influence of writers of Jewish background and the rising tide of antisemitism on the formation of sociology; the role of antisemitism in the historical development of sociology through its treatment by leading figures in the field, such as Emile Durkheim, Talcott Parsons and Theodor W. Ador; and the discipline's development in the aftermath of the Nazi Holocaust. Together the essays provide a fresh perspective on the history of sociology and the role that antisemitism, Jews, fascism, and the Holocaust played in shaping modern social theory.
