Chapter Summary

Continental neo-traditionalists are feeling their way as they move at least somewhat beyond Anglo Continental neo-traditionalists are nonetheless taking their bearings, as did Parsons, from basic epistemological principles. Proceeding epistemologically, continental neo-traditionalists operate on the assumption that in the sociological subfield of professions, as in others such as family, only when qualities constitutive of the object of study can be presented in ideal-typical terms can a subfield attain truly cumulative historical and cross-national findings. Hannes Siegrist has written independently and extensively on both professions and the Bürgertum, and recently reviewed both literature for the International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences. Siegrist adds that professionalization may also refer more generally to any and all processes putatively constitutive of professions. Siegrist is explicit that his typology of professionalization processes varies according to two sets of historical and cross-national contexts.

Keywords: anglo continental neo-traditionalists; Hannes Siegrist; professionalization
