Description

Abstract

This article revisits the conceptual framework employed by Karl Mannheim in his Ideology and Utopia (1936), seeking (1) a new appraisal of the self-defeating arguments which influenced later developments in the scholarly field of sociology of knowledge, and (2) new avenues to address the vital issues originally raised by him. After a brief overview of the history of sociology of knowledge and the place of Mannheim in its development, his book Ideology and Utopia will be used as an empirical site of conceptual exploration in order to shed new lights on the theoretical and methodological roots of Mannheim’s arguments in his work, and to search for alternative avenues to address the vital question he raised.
