Disputas sociológicas e seus recursos intelectuais
This essay aims to picture pieces of contemporary sociological debates, concerning epistemological issues. A dichotomy between term and concept will be developed to clarify the ideas that will relate a celebrated author — Pierre Bourdieu — with two more recent names — John Law and Bruno Latour — that presented new long range theories, in which one can immerse to account a very unorthodox sociology. In the source of this dichotomy there is a modernist epistemology that will be roughly (re)elaborated before the account of the other subjects. It will be suggested that the non-observation of some epistemological details follows some critiques in the debates, as well as the debate itself, fueling the plausibility of the concerning authors’ sociological theories.
