Sociologia Geral


Sobre a Sociologia Geral

Sociology-870x415A Sociologia Geral é frequentemente tomada como mera denominação alternativa de Sociologia. Trata-se de um erro, de facto, dado que a Sociologia Geral representa apenas uma das partes do sistema clássico de especialização da disciplina.

Incumbe à Sociologia Geral, na boa tradição durkheimiana, reunir, em teorias globais que se reportem à sociedade como um todo, as conclusões mais substantivas alcançadas pela investigação realizada em sede sociológica especializada. A disciplina contribui assim, quer para que se contrariem os efeitos potencialmente nefastos da sobre-especialização, quer para que se potencie a capacidade da Sociologia realizar a sua maior ambição: a formulação, eventual, de uma teoria unificadora dos fenómenos sociais.

Apresentação sumária da cadeira

A complexidade e a plasticidade da realidade social (que acomodam mesmo, facilmente, o contraditório) contribuem para a enganadora aparência do “óbvio”, para a descredibilização das descobertas da Sociologia e para a rápida incorporação do saber sociológico na consciência colectiva.

A Unidade Curricular “Sociologia Geral” integra o plano de estudos da licenciatura em Serviço Social do Instituto Superior de Ciências Sociais e Políticas da Universidade de Lisboa. Insere-se no 1º semestre do 1º ano lectivo desta oferta formativa.

A Unidade Curricular é oferecida, também, como disciplina opcional.

É objectivo geral da Unidade Curricular, facultar aos estudantes uma aproximação sociológica à fundação, fundamentos e transformações da Sociologia e, em particular, às aquisições efectivas e potenciais da Sociologia Geral.

É objectivo específico da Unidade Curricular: Familiarizar os estudantes com a especificidade dos modos do pensamento sociológico, e com aproximações macro, meso e micro, em perspectiva histórica e comparativa.

 

O programa contempla as condições da emergência da Sociologia e seus antecedentes; os obstáculos sociais e epistemológicos ao conhecimento sociológico; as relações entre Sociologia Geral e outras disciplinas; e as grandes orientações do pensamento sociológico, em três períodos: o dos clássicos; o da institucionalização da Sociologia; e o que vai da primeira metade do século XX, até ao presente.

O programa desenvolve-se em torno dos seguintes temas:

1. Emergência da Sociologia.

2 . Sociologia e Ciências Sociais.

3. Sociologia e Serviço Social.

4. Noções básicas da análise sociológica.

5. Perspectivas analíticas em Sociologia.

6. Modernidade e problemas sociais contemporâneos.
