About INAS 2017
Analytical sociology is a general approach to explaining the social world. It is concerned with phenomena such as common ways of (inter-) acting in a society, social network structures and patterns of segregation, and collectively shared and diffused cultural ideas. The mode of explanation is to specify in clear and precise ways the mechanisms through which social phenomena are brought about. Parts of analytical sociology focus on action and interaction as the cogs and wheels of social processes, while others consider the dynamic social processes that these actions and interactions bring about.
