It rejects nationalistic methods of considering that take the geographical region with no consideration up to globalist orthodoxy that speaks of its present and definitive decline.

Its major goal is hence to supply a renovated account of the nation-state’s old improvement and up to date international demanding situations through an research of the writings of key social theorists. This reconstruction of the historical past of the geographical region into 3 periods:

  • classical (K. Marx, M. Weber, E. Durkheim)

  • modernist (T. Parsons, R. Aron, R. Bendix, B. Moore)

  • contemporary (M. Mann, E. Hobsbawm, U. Beck, M. Castells, N. Luhmann, J. Habermas)

For each one section, it introduces social theory’s key perspectives concerning the geographical region, its previous, current and destiny. In so doing this publication rejects methodological nationalism, the declare that the countryside is the mandatory illustration of the trendy society, since it misrepresents the nation-state’s personal tricky trajectory in modernity. And methodological nationalism is usually rejected since it is not able to catch the richness of social theory’s highbrow canon. in its place, through a powerful notion of society and a subtler suggestion of the countryside, A Social concept of the Nation-State attempts to account for the ‘opacity of the geographical region in modernity’.
