Un problema de sentido. Naturaleza, teoría y práctica sociológicas

Published on Jan 1, 2013in Sociologia0.471
Abstract
La posicion de la sociologia en el debate ambiental es fragil. Esto se vincula, entre otras cosas, a la presunta ruptura epistemica fundacional entre el pensamiento sociologico y la naturaleza. Se relaciona, tambien, con una circunscripcion del trabajo socioambiental a asuntos que guardan una relacion tenue con debates y categorias centrales para la disciplina. Este articulo discute la evolucion historica del pensamiento sociologico sobre naturaleza y ambiente, y propone la nocion de sentido como puente comprensivo para una formulacion fructifera y propiamente sociologica de los problemas ambientales. Senala, finalmente, las avenidas de trabajo donde el quehacer sociologico cobra hoy relevancia.

The exemplary intellectual source of this bias could be found in the works of French sociologist Emile Durkheim whose methodological dictum stated that social facts could only be explained by other social facts. Here we call for a re-evaluation of Durkheim's role as perpetrator of the anthropoc...
