In Introducing Sociology: A Critical Perspective 2e , Knuttila offers an alternative approach to sociology that has been adapted from the work of British sociologist Anthony Giddens and infused with the philosophy of the controversial American sociologist C. Wright Mills. This approach beginsby examining the structure and organization of biological reproduction and material production within a society. Knuttila argues that sociology must be understood as a distinct way of thinking about human social behaviour in our diverse social worlds. The text presents the basic concepts and language of the sociology, provides a critical overview of the development of sociological theory, and explores the nature of sociological analysis by examining real issues.
