By Daniel Chernilo

A Social thought of the countryside: the political sorts of modernity past methodological nationalism, construes a unique and unique social thought of the countryside. It rejects nationalistic methods of pondering that take the geographical region with no consideration up to globalist orthodoxy that speaks of its present and definitive decline.


Its major goal is as a result to supply a renovated account of the nation-state’s historic improvement and up to date worldwide 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 each one section, it introduces social theory’s key perspectives concerning the geographical region, its previous, current and destiny. In so doing this booklet rejects methodological nationalism, the declare that the countryside is the required illustration of the fashionable society, since it misrepresents the nation-state’s personal complicated trajectory in modernity. And methodological nationalism can be rejected since it is not able to seize the richness of social theory’s highbrow canon. in its place, through a powerful notion of society and a subtler suggestion of the geographical region, A Social concept of the Nation-State attempts to account for the ‘opacity of the countryside in modernity’.
