Guiding distinctions of social science | An online brainstorming

The purpose of this online brainstorming, supported by the International Sociological Association, was to gather as complete a collection of guiding distinctions of social sciences as possible.

Guiding distinctions

By guiding distinctions we mean dichotomies or dualisms, such as economy/society, action/behaviour, market/hierarchy, micro/macro, or male/female, that have been or still are at the heart of the debates in our fields of social sciences (anthropology, economics, management, sociology, and many more).

The re­sults of the brain­stor­ming con­tri­bu­te to on­going re­se­ar­ch on the di­gi­tal trans­for­ma­tion of so­cial theo­ry.

The ­dead­li­ne ­for ­sub­mis­sion of i­deas ­was 08. Ju­ne 2019. Thank you so much to all participants for a total of 488 guiding distinctions (see this PDF for examples), and special thanks to the 10 most active participants:

  • Jean-­Se­bas­ti­en ­Guy (47)
