Community and civil society

Harris, J.

9780521567824 - Community and civil society

Artikelomschrijving

Ferdinand Tonnies Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft (first published in 1887) is a classic of social and political theory, which explores the clash between small-scale neighbourhood-based communities and large-scale competitive market societies. Tonnies considers all aspects of life - political, economic, legal and family; art, religion and culture; the construction of selfhood and personhood; and modes of cognition, language and understanding. Often recognised as one of the founding texts of sociology, Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft is also a highly significant contribution to European political thought and philosophy, with particular relevance to the legacies of Hobbes and Kant. It is at once a response to modernity, a theoretical exercise in social, political and moral science, and an unusual commentary on the inner character of democratic socialism. This new English rendition will introduce Tonnies work to a fresh generation of English-speaking readers with interests in social and political theory and the history of European ideas.
