"In the End, are all Sociologists Fatalists?”
Ludwig Gumplowicz (1838 - 1909): An Old-Austrian Pioneer of Early Sociology

Date: March 13, 2017. 4 pm.
Venue: Institute of Philosophy, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, 4. Tóth Kálmán Street, 7. floor, room B7.16

Kraków-born Ludwig Gumplowicz (1838-1909), professor of law at Graz University, was one of the pioneers of early sociology. In books like Der Rassenkampf (1883) and Grundriss der Sociologie (1885) he analyzed human culture and social institutions as parts of a “natural process” according to “eternal laws”. Highly acclaimed at his lifetime, not only in Austria, but as well in the United States and France, his theories later were rated as social-darwinistic and even as an intellectual basis of fascistic ideology. But this verdict is based on a very generalized understanding of his theories and in fact not true.

The Insitute of Philosophy of RCH HAS cordially invities you to the following talk:
