About this book

The axis of this book is the articulation between the concept of collective subjectivity with the themes of social evolution and social creativity on the one hand, plus contemporary modernity and social change on the other. Drawing on theoretical ideas on reflexivity, creativity and history, it proposes a discussion of fundamental aspects of contemporary society, dealing with global modernity, economic sociology and social policy, via concrete discussions about Brazil and Britain.

Reviews

'It is a distinct intellectual pleasure to follow Maurício Domingues as he

glides with seemingly effortless intelligence across the slippery crevices

and dangerous nooks and crannies of contemporary sociological theory.

Amidst his welcome respect for many voices and his call for creative new

synthesis, Domingues continues to develop his interesting notion of

collective subjectivities. Social Creativity, Collective Subjectivity and Contemporary Modernity is an important project that can

help to sustain critical social theory.' - Jeffrey Alexander, Professor, Department of Sociology, University of California at Los Angeles
