Developed out of the German sociology of knowledge in the 1920s, Elias s sociology contains a sweeping radicalism which declares an academic war on all your houses . His sociology of the human condition sweeps aside the contemporary focus on modernity and rejects most of the paradigms of sociology as one-sided, economistic, teleological, individualistic and/or rationalistic.

As sociologists, Elias also asks us to distance ourselves from mainstream psychology, history and above all, philosophy, which is summarily abandoned, although carried forward on a higher level.This enlightening book written by a close friend and pupil of Elias, is the first book to explain the refractory, uncomfortable, side of Elias s sociological radicalism and to brace us for its implications.

It is also the first in-depth analysis of Elias s last work The Symbol Theory in the light of selected contemporary developments in archaeology, anthropology and evolutionary theory.
