  1. Better, do this as an allourideas. I saw Tim Sullivan do this and it was a lot easier to answer (and probably more informative) than a single list.

  2. Quick question (not knowing what will actually be in the book): is it really about explanation — as a philosopher of science would define explanation — and how much of the explanation would be mechanistic explanation?

  3. Curious: It is not philosophy of science. It is more like: “here are the types of explanations of empirical phenomena that sociologists tend to talk about.” Think Randall Collins but update to the present and with mechanisms as the guiding torch.

  4. I like “How the World Works: Contemporary Sociological Theory for Everyday Life” but the “everyday life” part seems a bit of a cliche now…

    How about something like… “Seeing like a sociologist: Social theories to make sense of the world”


    “Seeing like a sociologist: Social theories to explain a changing world”

    The “seeing like a” is a nod to James C. Scott’s work.
