    Capitalism and Modern Social Theory: An Analysis of the Writings of Marx, Durkheim and Max Weber.Anthony Giddens - 1973 - Cambridge University Press.
    Giddens's analysis of the writings of Marx, Durkheim and Weber has become the classic text for any student seeking to understand the three thinkers who established the basic framework of contemporary sociology. The first three sections of the book, based on close textual examination of the original sources, contain separate treatments of each writer. The author demonstrates the internal coherence of their respective contributions to social theory. The concluding section discusses the principal ways in which Marx can be compared with (...)

    A Reply to My Critics.Anthony Giddens - 1982 - Theory, Culture and Society 1 (2):107-113.
    My text is written to answer the questions asked at the APA Meeting's presentation of the book Moral Textures: Feminist Narratives in the Public Sphere by professors María Lugones and Eduardo Mendieta. The answer seeks to clarify that Lugones's infrapolitics position is not so distant from mine. I also address Mendieta's question directed more to the aesthetic domain. There, I seek to show how my position could be taken as a creative effort to extend some of Habermas's early work on (...)

  20. Durkheim on politics and the state.Anthony Giddens (ed.) - 1986 - Stanford, Calif.: Stanford University Press.
    Durkheim's writins on politlcal theory and the nature of government have been among the most neglected of his contributions to modern social science. The editor, one of the first to argue the importance of Durkheim's political thought, has assembled the first English-language collection of that author's significant writings on politics, government, the nature and function of the state, socialism, and Marxism. The introductory essay provides a critical appraisal of Durkehim's political ideas and situates them within the framework of the author's (...)

    The ‘Individual’ in the Writings of Émile Durkheim.Anthony Giddens - 2023 - In Nathalie Bulle & Francesco Di Iorio (eds.), The Palgrave Handbook of Methodological Individualism: Volume I. Springer Verlag. pp. 513-533.
    It is argued that there is a reciprocal relationship between Durkheim’s substantive discussion of the development of individualism and his abstract formulations of sociological methods. Durkheim is often regarded as being fervently “anti-individualist”. But in fact, his works contain a vigorous defence of individualism—understood in a specific way. In other words, Durkheim’s writings represent an attempt to detach “liberal individualism”, regarded as a conception of the characteristics of the modern social order, from “methodological individualism”.

  31. The Transformation of Intimacy: Sexuality, Love, and Eroticism in Modern Societies.Anthony Giddens - 1992 - Stanford University Press.
    The sexual revolution: an evocative term, but what meaning can be given to it today? How does “sexuality” come into being, and what connections does it have with the changes that have affected personal life more generally? In answering these questions, the author disputes many of the dominant interpretations of the role of sexuality in modern culture. The author suggests that the revolutionary changes in which sexuality has become cauth up are more long-term than generally conceded. He sees them as (...)
