Chapter Summary

This chapter establishes the groundwork for the ontological understanding of anarchist-sociology what it is or, more importantly, what it could be? The major goal is to answer: what does "anarchist-sociology" mean to the discipline of sociology? There are lots of potential understandings to the phrase "anarchist-sociology"; it is a rather flexible noun, particularly since it lacks any prior definition. The chapter offers possible meanings of "anarchist-sociology", compares the two traditions of anarchism and sociology, establishes a basic definition of anarchist-sociology, and re-conceptualizes sociology along anarchist values. Anarchist-sociology scholarship would include the complimentary study of how liberatory alternatives are and could be developed. Anarchist-sociology helps people develop an "anarchist imagination" comparable to C. Wright Mills' "sociological imagination".

Keywords: anarchist-sociology; C. Wright Mills; sociology
