Ideology and Utopia

Sampul Depan
Psychology Press, 1991 - 318 halaman
Ideology and Utopia argues that ideologies are mental fictions whose function is to veil the true nature of a given society. They originate unconsciously in the minds of those who seek to stabilise a social order. Utopias are wish dreams that inspire the collective action of opposition groups which aim at the entire transformation of society. Mannheim shows these two opposing elements to dominate not only our social thought but even unexpectedly to penetrate into the most scientific theories in philosophy, history and the social sciences.
This new edition contains a new preface by Bryan S. Turner which describes Mannheim's work and critically assesses its relevance to modern sociology. The book is published with a comprehensive bibliography of Mannheim's major works.

Tentang pengarang (1991)

Louis Wirth was a German-born American sociologist who spent most of his career at the University of Chicago. Like other members of the Chicago School, he was instrumental in linking social theory to planning and action. His studies on cities in general and on Chicago in particular helped lay the foundation for social planning and policy making in the United States. Wirth was instrumental in generating funding for academic projects that supported social amelioration, and his work in race relations helped improve conditions for minorities before the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. As a man of erudition, Wirth not only introduced the English-speaking world to the works of important German social scientists like Karl Mannheim, but also furthered a more theoretical approach to cities and their problems. His essay "Urbanism as a Way of Life" became a landmark of modern urban sociological theory and established a research agenda for generations of sociologists to come.
