Ingo Pies presents a collection of 20 texts, each of which centers around the works of a particular classical modern social theorist and offers an introduction to the seminal author's oeuvre. Also provided are systematic and historical assessments of their writings with special attention paid to the importance each author attributes to institutions and their societal coordination of individual behavior. Furthermore, each of these modern classical thinkers is analyzed with regard to the political implications of their particular oeuvre. The book's focus is on learning from these modern classics, rather than on learning about them. The texts are thus well suited to both teaching and research purposes; inspiring conceptualizing social thought, they can be used as reference works on the individual authors or as seminar reading assignments.
