In order to analyse the evolution of social science, Habermas applied the distinction between natural scientific and cultural scientific thinking. The author of this book focuses on the implications of this distinction and discusses its consequences for sociological thinking of culture. To what extent are the concept of culture and the theory of culture in sociology characterized by natural scientific and by cultural scientific thought, respectively? Have attempts been made to form syntheses between these two forms of thinking in sociology of culture?
