میدونم که رِیت دادن بهش احمقانه ترین کار دنیاس، وقتی جمعا 54 صفحه شو خوندی فقط(قراره بیشتر شه البته)ولی خب خواستم این کارو بکنم دیگه، دلم خواست! بعله!
و اگر همسن و سال منید، و میخواید که سلامت عقلتون حفظ بشه، و هنوز وقتی آدمای عادی باهاتون حرف میزنن، بفهمید و بفهمند، خواهش میکنم که به خاطر خودتونم که شده، فعلا، تا مجبور نشدین سراغش نرین!
اولين كتابي بود(شما توجه داشته باشيد كه من دنياي سوفي و ناديا خوندم آ!) كه منو وادار كرد به ساختن شلو سخت ترين ها واقعا!
به نظرم سه کتاب هست که اگر کسی بخواد بدونه جامعه شناسی در چه مورد حرف می زنه باید بخونه. اولی «زندگی و اندیشه بزرگان جامعه شناسی کوزر» دومی «نظریه های جامعه شناسی ریتزر» و سومی «جامعه شناسی گیدنز»

like it!
حسن بزرگی که دارد این است که فضای اجتماعی و به طور کلی غیرمعرفتی هر متفکر را هم توضیح می دهد

جامعه شناسی خیلی بهتر از فلسفه است

a very robust book...the only issue is that there are a myriad of ideas making it challenging. the most enticing are those about marx's theory of alienation and max weber's ideas on the rationalization of post capitalist societies.

Lots of reading, but when a mission is completed, we begin to never be the same.

Now. We're better.

Wonderful book, with tonnes to learn.

Study of Society- lol.

قطعن بعد از گیدنز باید دومین کتاب باشه برای شروع جامعه شناسی.
ترجمه خوبی هم دارد.
