Historical Views and Social Theory

• series: social research and criticism


In a compact form, the author provides information about selected historical views which lie at the center of certain historical perceptions. Views of the course of history and controversial ideas about a suitable logic for presenting history have an influence on a wide range of social theories. It is not so much the works by certain individual authors, but the features which historical views display in a socio-theoretical sense and the problems these entail which are the focus of the presentation. They are discussed using, as a basis, some of the claims and theses which the selected theorists have come up with.
