Description

The prejudice to think at sociology as an "invention" of modern science is still quite common. Sociology, instead, must be rediscovered in the wake of the ancients, inasmuch it concerns human beingsmen's "living together" and "coexisting." The world of polis and modern societies are obviously incomparable, but the ancients "discovered" that society is a macroanthropos - a man writ large - and not simply a systemic microcosm, as it is still represented by a particularly obsolete and scientistic methodologism. This volume aims at recovering this masterful discovery, revisiting Eric Voegelin's all-important insights and outlining the basis of a realist social ontology.show more
