What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

What Hilbert does is provide historical justification for taking ethnomethodology seriously on its own terms as sociology. Thus, the book should be read, both by ethnomethodologists and by sociological theorists in general.—Charles Lemert, Wesleyan University



Hilbert powerfully argues that ethnomethodology rescues Durkheim and Weber from their confinement in Parsonian theory. The Classical Roots of Ethnomethodology is a fresh, provocative, and profound interpretation of a significant segment of twentieth-century sociological theory.—Melvin Pollner, University of California, Los Angeles



A gestalt switch for mainstream sociologists and ethnomethodologists alike. . . . Hilbert treats the classics and moderns analytically. He cuts through to a core of central ideas; he shows their resonances and incompatibilities.—from the Foreword by Randall Collins



Hilbert challenges the Parsonian treatment of the classics to show that the concerns of Garfinkel's ethnomethodology are inscribed in the sociological writings of Durkheim and Weber. The result is a new and stimulating reappraisal of the ways in which all three thinkers address the foundations of social action and social order.—John Heritage, University of California, Los Angeles



A fresh, provocative, and profound interpretation of a significant segment of twentieth-century sociological theory.—Melvin Pollner
