Norbert Elias has been described as among the great sociologists of the 20th century. A collection of his most important writings, this book sets out Elias' thinking during the course of his long career, with a discussion of how his work relates to that of other sociologists.But in saying this, one refers only to one facet of the relationship between the mode of thinking and the situation of those who think. To complete the nexus one would have to add that the more detached theoretical tools of thinking which anthropologists have a chance to build up in accordance with ... Not all frames of reference of physical problems cluster narrowly around the congeries pole of the model.
