9780044457534: Rethinking Progress: Movements, Forces, and Ideas at the End of the Twentieth Century

A collection of papers which were the outcome of a conference organized by the editors of Jagiellonian University in Drakow, Poland, which took place between June 28 and July 1, 1988. The topic was "Social progress and sociological theory: movements, forces, and ideas at the end of the twentieth century". The meeting was the first material result of our ongoing efforts to organize and "invisible college" of sociological theoriest on an international scale, and effort that has now come to fruition as a "working group" of the International Sociological Association, to be established as a Research Committee on Theory.

Product Description:

Rethinking Progress provides a challenging reevaluation of one of the crucial ideas of Western civilization; the notion of progress. Progress often seems to have become self-defeating, producing ecological deserts, overpopulated cities, exhausted resources, decaying cultures, and widespread feelings of alienation. The contributors, from all over the world, present their diversified perspectives on the fate of progress.
