ProtoSociology is an interdisciplinary journal which crosses the borders of philosophy, social sciences, and their corresponding disciplines for more than two decades. Each issue concentrates on a specific topic taken from the current discussion to which scientists from different fields contribute the results of their research.
Volume 32 – 2015:
Making and Un-Making Modern Japan. Ed. by Ritu Vij
Volume 33 – 2016 (fortcoming): The Borders of Global Theory – Reflections from Within and Without. Ed. by Barrie Axford
Volume 34 – 20176 (fortcoming): Meaning and Publicity. Ed. by Richard Manning
ProtoSociology is further a project that examines the nature of mind, language and social systems. In this context theoretical work has been done by investigating such theoretical concepts like interpretation and (social) action, globalization, the global world-system, social evolution, and the sociology of membership. Our purpose is to initiate and enforce basic research on relevant topics from different perspectives and traditions.
