Zygmunt Bauman. On Writing Sociology

Theory, Culture & Society, Vol. 17, No. 1, 79-90 (2000) DOI: 10.1177/02632760022051013

Sociology, like poetry, explores/discovers/creates hidden or heretofore non-existing human potentialities; both rebel against closing, identifying the-already-achieved reality with the limit of that potential. Sociology is destined to sustain the autonomy of, simultaneously, human society and human individuals, and autonomy means the awareness of the human origins of social reality and of the possibility of making it different from what it is. In the age of rapid and radical individualization, the task of sociology is to service self-interpretation with the view of widening the sphere of human autonomy through disclosure of multiple social connection which contribute to its present form and future changes
