Toward a Sociology of the Network Society


The  twenty-first century of the Common Era did not  necessarily  have  to usher  in  a new  society. But  it  did.  People  around  the  world  feel  the winds  of  multidimensional  social  change without  truly  understanding  it,  let  alone  feeling  a grasp upon the process of change. Thus the challenge to sociology, as the science of study of society. More than ever society needs sociology, but not  just  any  kind  of  sociology.  The  sociology that people  need  is not a normative meta-discipline  instructing  them,  from  the  authoritative towers of  academia, about what  is  to be done. It is even less a pseudo~sociology  made up of  empty  word  games  and  intellectual  narcissism, expressed  in  terms  deliberately  incomprehensible for anyone without access to a French-Greek dictionary.
