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.
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)
- @pschwede (33)
- Lukas Scheiber (25)
- Mitja Stefancic (23)
- Iván Klos (19)
- Jose S. (15)
- Lars Clausen (14)
- Mike Buhl (10)
- Alisson Soares (8)
- Klaus Laursen (7)
