Ideology and Utopiaargues that ideologies are mental fictions whose function is to veil the true nature of a given society. They originate unconsciously in the minds of those who seek to stabilise a social order. Utopias are wish dreams that inspire the collective action of opposition groups which aim at the entire transformation of society. Mannheim shows these two opposi ...more

Reading this book was the equivalent of being in an abusive relationship. Mannheim's writing style is unnecessarily complicated which manifests itself in the form of slightly incomprehensible sentences followed by completely incomprehensible sentences. That being said, his ideas are quite loveable. No matter how many times you throw the book away you will keep coming back to it. Make no mistake reading this book will kill part of your soul before reaching the end. It's fairly exhausting.

While Mannheim's concepts themselves are interesting, I feel like the whole book walks in little loops; you have to cycle back over previously mentioned ideas in order to move ahead just a millimeter. It was a little exhausting. ...more

I wish I’d picked up another strand in my review of The Last Gentleman. In it, the engineer, accompanied by a telescope, maps, a firkin and an knowledge of air conditioning represents to some degree measurement, exactitude, reasoning itself; in the novel this is contrasted against the fleshy immanences of existence, the messy viscera of humanity, and also the limits of abstract reasoning. Yet there’s a dissolution (not a compromise, not a resolution) of the dialectic or contrast – perhaps becaus ...more

يناقش هذا الكتاب ككل فكرة: كيف يفكر الناس فعليًّا؟ وكيف يؤدي الفكر وظيفته في الحياة وفي السياسة كأداة للعمل الاجتماعي
بداية يحاول الكاتب أن يبين أهم التغيرات في تصور الناس للأيديولوجيا، ويبين من ناحية كيف أن هذه التغيرات في المعنى مرتبطة بالتغيرات الاجتماعية والتاريخية، وأن المفاهيم ذاتها تمر بتغيرات يكاد لا يلحظها أحد.
يركز على مفهومين رئيسيين هما الأيديولوجيا واليوتوبيا الأولى يعرفها من منظور كلي وفردي ويوضح تحولها من الفردي للكلي أي تحول الأيديولوجيا من مجرد تصور في الذهن الى اعتقاد عام عند جما

This is a must read for any scientist who wonder about the nature of research activity. Although it is theoretical book - hardly no data -, it makes the case that science is anything but a neutral activity in pursue of truths. Social and material conditions of existence should also be a part of the hermeneutics of science, since no scientists ever lived in a vacuum. Similarly, analysis of ideologies and utopias help to orient our efforts to understand where does a scientific theory comes from an ...more

While this book was hailed as ground-breaking in the sociology of knowledge, I found it very general in its ideas and mostly as applied to academic knowledge. The concepts of ideology as socially formed thought systems that support particular social structures and utopia as a conception of an alternative social structure I do find useful.

I began reading assigned sections of Ideology and Utopia during grad school back in the early 1990s. I decided to finally pick it up and re-read the entire book. Make no mistake, Ideology and Utopia is a struggle to read. You will find yourself re-reading some paragraphs 3 or 4 times to make sure you understand it. Mannheim is unnecessarily complex in his writing, (or perhaps it was the translation by Louis Wirth); regardless, you will encounter sentences that run half a page and full pages with ...more

Libro complicado, que, como dice en otra reseña, va como dando vueltas que van produciendo muy lentamente una teoría concreta. El problema es que es tan detallado que inevitablemente tiene que tomarse tiempo abarcando cada temática que toca. Por lo tanto van a haber muchos párrafos indescifrables que más adelante van a cobrar sentido. Entrega una visión sociológica –muy cuidada en lo metodológico– acerca del conocimiento, el pensamiento y la ideología, con una raigambre marcadamente materialista ...more

Крайне тяжелая для понимания книга, и читать ее нужно очень-очень медленно (что для меня невозможно), поэтому поняла я не все, но то немногое, что поняла, думаю, окажется полезным для обдумывания.

يري مانهايم أن مفهوم الأيديولوجا تفكير يهدف الي استمرار الحاضر و نفي بذور التغيير الموجوده فيه يساعد على حفظ النظام القائم و التمسك بالأمن فمفومها الخاص يشير الى أنها شريحة او قطاع من الفكر المعارض او المناوئ فأن لم تتغير هذه المصالح و الاهتمامات ففكر الجماعة يظل ثابت و استاتيكي سيكولوجية مصالح اما التصور العام لها أنها لا تميز الفكر المعارض فحسب بل أنها تميز فكر الفرد نفسه فيري مانهايم أن الفرد الذي لا يعتنق ايديولوجية معينة بصورة تزمنية هو شخص مثقف محرر من كل انتماء طبقي و يصل الي الوعي الصادق ...more

While this book could be glibly summed up as a treatise on the notion that we all have biases, the book is one of the most complex examinations of how our perspectives, our histories, our framework for all knowledge are all impossibly tied up with our context. It eerily seems ripe for new readers in the age of Trumpism and zealotry, and it's horrifying to think Mannheim died during the rise of Hitler.

Notes: "...too many conflicting sources from which meanings with regard to a given object are de

“In our contemporary social and intellectual plight, it is nothing less than shocking to discover that those persons who claim to have discovered an absolute are usually the same people who also pretend to be superior to the rest. To find people in our day attempting to pass off to the world and recommending to others some nostrum of the absolute which they claim to have discovered is merely a sign of the loss of and the need for intellectual and moral certainty, felt by broad sections of the population who are unable to look life in the face.” 7 likes
“Hence insight may be regarded as the core of social knowledge. It is arrived at by being on the inside of the phenomenon to. be observed, or, as Charles H. Cooley put it, by sympathetic introspection. It is the participation in an activity that generates interest, purpose, point of view, value, meaning, and intelligibility, as well as bias.” 0 likes
