Essays in the Theory of Action

By Victor Lidz

The contributions in this collection include both critical studies of the work of Talcott Parsons and contributions to sociological theory within the Parsonian framework. The essays cover such important topics as: the secularization of moral culture in modern times * functional and phenomenological approaches in the sociology of law * the rise of political parties and related changes * social stratification in the U.S. in the 19th century * the theory of influence. Selected from a wide-ranging body of theoretical work that author Victor Lidz has developed over 35 years, these essays have a common theme of emphasizing the generative and creative nature of social action.
