Gino Germani y la renovación de las ciencias sociales en América Latina
MetadataShow full item record
Sociological knowledge is essential for a concrete and effective reading of social phenomena. The problem of sociology, from its origin, is to build and maintain significant correlations between sociological thinking and autonomy from other sciences. What has characterized the evolution of sociology was not so much the object of study, but the need to make it autonomous. This debate has developed especially in Europe and the United States, while in the countries of Latin America actions have been taken to ensure that sociology develops and assumes a meaningful role in the academic context. The aim of this research article is to explain: a) the evolutionary phases of this discipline, in general; b) the phases that have characterized the development of social sciences and in particular sociology in Latin America; c) the role of Gino Germani in the renewal of sociology and social sciences in Argentina.
