Essays on the Sociology of Culture : Karl Mannheim: Collected English Writings, Volume 7 (Routledge Classics in Sociology)

Karl Mannheim


Karl Mannheim was once one of many major sociologists of the 20th century. Essays at the Sociology of Culture, initially released in 1956, used to be one in all his most crucial books. In it he units out his principles of intellectuals as manufacturers of tradition and explores the probabilities of a democratization of tradition. This new version features a magnificent new preface via Bryan Turner which units Mannheim's research within the acceptable old and highbrow context and explains why his concept on tradition is still crucial for college students engaged in debates approximately mass tradition, the politics of tradition and postmodernity.
