    In the Field but Not of the Field: Clifford Geertz, Robert Bellah, and the Practices of Interdisciplinarity.Andrea Cossu & Matteo Bortolini - 2020 - European Journal of Social Theory 23 (3):328-349.
    The intellectual trajectories of social scientists Robert N. Bellah and Clifford Geertz are compared as a case study in the production of successful interdisciplinary work. Geertz and Bellah started from a similar position, in terms of scholarly habits, network centrality, and symbolic capital. However, while Geertz became an interdisciplinary star and left his mark in disciplines as diverse as history, sociology, and cultural studies, Bellah’s interdisciplinary appeal was more limited, while his ability to speak to the general public as a (...)

    Found in Translation: Habermas and Anthropotechnics.Matteo Bortolini - 2017 - The European Legacy 22 (5):583-599.
    In his recent work on postsecular societies Jürgen Habermas has stressed the need for a dialogue between religious and nonreligious citizens aimed at strengthening social integration and rejuvenating the moral bases of modern political and juridical institutions.

    The Grudging Modernizer: A Trip to the Middle East and Cold War Social Science.Matteo Bortolini - 2021 - Minerva 59 (2):261-284.
    The postwar era is generally recognized as a unique moment of impetuous growth of the social sciences, due to the interest of Western internationalist elites in the development of a set of pragmatically-oriented intellectual tools that could be of use in the confrontation between the self-proclaimed “Free World,” the Soviet bloc, and emerging postcolonial nations. In the last twenty years, however, doubts about the impact of the Cold War syndrome on the development of ideas, methods, and infrastructures of Western social (...)
