    The Rise of Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) in International Development in Historical Perspective.Gil Eyal & Luciana Souza Leão - 2019 - Theory and Society 48 (3):383-418.
    This article brings a historical perspective to explain the recent dissemination of randomized controlled trials as the new “gold standard” method to assess international development projects. Although the buzz around RCT evaluations dates from the 2000s, we show that what we are witnessing now is a second wave of RCTs, while a first wave began in the 1960s and ended by the early 1980s. Drawing on content analysis of 123 RCTs, participant observation, and secondary sources, we compare the two waves (...)

  3. On Irony: An Invitation to Neoclassical Sociology.Gil Eyal, Iván Szélényi & Eleanor Townsley - 2003 - Thesis Eleven 73 (1):5-41.
    This article proffers an invitation to neoclassical sociology. This is understood as a Habermasian reconstruction of the fundamental vision of the discipline as conceptualized by classical theorists, particularly Weber. Taking the cases of Eastern and Central Europe as a laboratory, we argue against the idea of a single, homogenizing globalizing logic. Currently and historically what we see instead is a remarkable diversity of capitalist forms and destinations. Neither sociological theories of networks and embeddedness nor economic models of rational action adequately (...)

    Mistrust in Numbers.Gil Eyal - 2022 - Spontaneous Generations 10 (1):36-46.
    This paper characterizes the crisis of expertise, especially as it manifested during the covid-19 pandemic, as a crisis of trust in regulatory science. The temporal structure of the facts produced by regulatory science differs from Kuhnian “normal science,” while they also contain profound distributional implications. As a result, they suffer from a set of congenital problems that provoke mistrust in a way that normal science facts do not. While “expertise” is often offered as an answer to these problems, the paper (...)

    The Sociology of Personal Identification.Jordan Brensinger & Gil Eyal - 2021 - Sociological Theory 39 (4):265-292.
    Systems drawing on databases of personal information increasingly shape life experiences and outcomes across a range of settings, from consumer credit and policing to immigration, health, and employment. How do these systems identify and reidentify individuals as the same unique persons and differentiate them from others? This article advances a general sociological theory of personal identification that extends and improves earlier work by theorists like Goffman, Mauss, Foucault, and Deleuze. Drawing on examples from an original ethnographic study of identity theft (...)
