Towards a Sociological Analysis of Knowledge
- This format is currently out of stock.
This volume collects Gerard DeGru's writings, spanning four decades of activity. From his thesis on the theory of semiotics in Sorokin and Spengler to his later writings drawing a sharp distinction between the sociology of knowledge and sociological theories of knowledge, DeGru remains sensitive to the place of language in knowledge formation.
