Abstract

A genuine sociological theory of society faces two prejudices: that it lacks a unifying conceptual framework and that its basic concepts are not qualified for a critique of modern society. A third prejudice is suggested by the discussion on post-modernity: the basic concepts of sociological theory of society are bound to "modernity" as a historical epoch. The purpose of the paper is to show first: sociological theory has a unifying conceptual framework despite its different origins; second: its basic concepts are critical, not "affirmative" ; and third: from the point of view of sociological theory, post-modern development remains within the framework of modernity.
