Миллс Ч. Р.
Translator: А. М. Корбут

In his classical paper, published in 1943, famous American sociologist C. Wright Mills analyses a tradition of social pathologies studies that was popular in American sociology in 1920–30s. Author argues that a low level of abstraction, ignorance of wider social structures, orientation to the «organic» ideals of stability and adaptation are characteristic for this approach. Mills connects these features of the ideology of social pathologists to the social context of the functioning of sociological knowledge: professional careers of social pathologists, their origins, channels of the distribution of sociological texts, potential readers.
