Book chapter

Contemporary Civilizational Analysis and Russian Sociology

P. 206-220.
Maslovskiy M.

The chapter explores civilization as a sociological concept. Rooted in the works of  Shmuel Eisenstadt and Johann Arnason, this concept has been used by sociologists to describe processes of modernization and the condition of modernity. During the last decade, this current has received some attention in Russian sociology. In sociological use, civilizational analysis has offered an alternative to the politicized, Huntington-inspired civilizationism. The chapter provides an introduction to civilizational analysis surveying its recent impact on Russian sociological scholarship.
