Abstract

Richard Swedberg, well known for his work in economic sociology and one of the doyens of the rising movement in analytical sociology, offers the reader a pessimistic view of the current state-of-the-art about sociological theorizing. Indeed, compared to empirical methods or other sciences such as cognitive science, sociological theory has advanced little over the last decades. The prognosis is simple: students and researchers are taught theories but cannot theorize. If this is the case, then what is to be done? What does ‘theorizing’ mean exactly?
