Social Theory Thematic Group

Aims and Objectives

TASA's Social Theory Thematic Group provides a forum for the discussion and development of social theory. It welcomes systematic and critical reflection on the human condition in society and the changing complexion of modernity. From Critical Theory to phenomenology, from meta-theory to hermeneutics and beyond, TASA Social Theory embraces a pluralistic approach to the elucidation of the social world.

The Social Theory thematic group invites new interventions into long standing debates on, for example, the macro and micro, action and system, or power and culture; it fosters dialogue between classical and contemporary social theory; promotes theoretical responses to current issues and debates; and welcomes social theoretical innovation.

Drawing on the rich traditions of social theory in Australia, TASA Social Theory embodies an institutional context in which sociology interfaces with theoretical debates in the human sciences, more generally. Through rigorous dialogue, conceptual analysis and theoretical debates, TASA Social Theory builds disciplinary grounding within an interdisciplinary context. TASA Social Theory contributes to the development of imaginative and robust social theoretical frameworks that address the central problematics of our contemporary world.
