    The Might Have Been and Could Be of Religion in Social Theory.Charles Lemert - 1999 - Sociological Theory 17 (3):240-263.
    Religion may well be the most inscrutable surd of social theory, which began late in the 19 th century dismissing the subject. Not even the renewal of interest in religion in the 1960s did much to make religion a respectable topic in social theory. It is possible that social theory's troubles are, in part, due to its refusal to think about religion. Close examination of social theories of Greek religion suggest, for principal example, that religion is perfectly able to thrive (...)

    Durkheim's Ghosts: Cultural Logics and Social Things.Charles C. Lemert - 2006 - Cambridge University Press.
    Durkheim's Ghosts is a fascinating presentation of the tradition of social theory influenced by Emile Durkheim's thinking on the social foundations of knowledge. From Saussure and Levi-Strauss to Foucault, Bourdieu and Derrida, today's criticisms of modern politics and culture owe an important, if unacknowledged, debt to Durkheim. These engaging and innovative essays by leading sociologist Charles Lemert bring together his writings on the contributions of French social theory past and present. Rather than merely interpret the theories, Lemert uses them to (...)

  9. Why Niebuhr Matters.Charles Lemert - 2011 - Yale University Press.
    Reinhold Niebuhr was a Protestant preacher, an influential religious thinker, and an important moral guide in mid-twentieth-century America. But what does he have to say to us now? In what way does he inform the thinking of political leaders and commentators from Barack Obama and Madeleine Albright to David Brooks and Walter Russell Mead, all of whom acknowledge his influence? In this lively overview of Niebuhr's career, Charles Lemert analyzes why interest in Niebuhr is rising and how Niebuhr provides the (...)

    Can the Worlds Be Changed? On Ethics and the Multicultural Dream.Charles Lemert - 2004 - Thesis Eleven 78 (1):46-60.
    Multiculturalism is, among other things, an attitude toward values - hence, an ethic of a kind. The question it poses, however, is what kind of ethics are possible when it is assumed that the one world culture that stood behind classical social ethics no longer pertains. The issue binds most strictly when it is further assumed that social ethics entail political commitments to change the worlds. Hence, the practical consideration of whether or not plural worlds of incommensurable values allow for (...)

    Social Theory at the Early End of a Short Century.Charles Lemert - 1994 - Sociological Theory 12 (2):140-152.
    It is, perhaps, time to move beyond the postmodernism debate if only because the challenges it poses cannot be solved from within its terms. In fact, there is every good reason to believe that modernity is ending but the facts of this matter will not be discovered by theory alone. It is, thus, time for social theory to return to original purposes-to write the history of the present. Accordingly, social theory must reread its classics, not to return to origins, but (...)

    The Clothes Have No Emperor.Charles Lemert - 2000 - Theory, Culture and Society 17 (1):97-106.
    `The Clothes Have No Emperor' means to say that Bourdieu's criticism of American imperialism is an understandable slip of his brilliant visual sociology. He writes to those of a disposition to agree completely because they know the facts all the better. Bourdieu may well be the only person alive today who has so perfectly combined theoretical, empirical and political work. Why then has he allowed this critique to be published for all the world to see? Not, I think, because he (...)

    Social Ethics?Charles Lemert - 1997 - Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 27 (2&3):277–287.
    Most of the sciences of social behavior arose initially out of social ethics. The question asked is whether social ethics can revive itself as a central occupation of social thought. Such a revival faces the challenge of rethinking the normative foundations of late modern, global conditions which themselves are seen as inhospitable to the classic terms of philosophical and social ethic reflection. Though the privileged doubt it, the world is in fact inclining towards stark conditions of economic and natural instability, (...)
