It rejects nationalistic methods of pondering that take the countryside with no consideration up to globalist orthodoxy that speaks of its present and definitive decline.


Its major target is consequently to supply a renovated account of the nation-state’s old improvement and up to date international demanding situations through an research of the writings of key social theorists. This reconstruction of the background of the countryside into 3 periods:



  • classical (K. Marx, M. Weber, E. Durkheim)

  • modernist (T. Parsons, R. Aron, R. Bendix, B. Moore)

  • contemporary (M. Mann, E. Hobsbawm, U. Beck, M. Castells, N. Luhmann, J. Habermas)


For every one part, it introduces social theory’s key perspectives concerning the geographical region, its previous, current and destiny. In so doing this publication rejects methodological nationalism, the declare that the countryside is the mandatory illustration of the trendy society, since it misrepresents the nation-state’s personal complex trajectory in modernity. And methodological nationalism is usually rejected since it is not able to trap the richness of social theory’s highbrow canon. as an alternative, through a robust perception of society and a subtler concept of the countryside, A Social thought of the Nation-State attempts to account for the ‘opacity of the geographical region in modernity’.
