The order of social sciences: sociology in dialogue with neighbouring disciplines

Dieter Bögenhold ()

The Journal of Philosophical Economics, 2017, vol. 11, issue 1, 27-52

Abstract: Comparing sociology with economics, psychology or history shows that borderlines between disciplines have become fluent and always newly oscillating. Economists, especially prominent positions awarded with Nobel prizes, are increasingly discussing items as motivation, rationality, norms or culture which belong to the domain of sociology. Sociology should acknowledge this kind of ‘imperialism’ and claim own competencies.
