Boudon, Raymond [WorldCat Identities]

When taken in this restricted sense, social immobility can also be called inequality of social opportunity iso. This book describes an attempt to synthesize the main findings accumulated by empirical research on these two closely related points. On the one hand, there was a scientific facet which consisted of forty-nine invited mathematical lectures that were intended to establish the state of individualisme methodologique art in the various branches of pure and applied mathematics.

This scientific facet also included poster sessions where participants had the opportunity of presenting their work.

Particular attention is given, in successive essays, to issues of anti-poverty, human rights, economic theory and international finance. The system's higher-level properties are determined by its lower-level properties, but can be realized by numerous different configurations of them and hence cannot feasibly be redescribed in terms of lower-level properties.

The causal relations in which some of the system's higher-level properties stand are robust to changes in their lower-level realization. This is typically explained in individualisme methodologique of internal structural features of democracies that privilege norms of cooperation and compromise.

There are, however, so many ways of instantiating these features that an explanation at the lower level of description, such as that of the individual, would be unable to articulate the relevant causal relation.

One way of avoiding such fallacies was to force social scientists to look always at interactions from the participant's perspective, to see what sort of preference structure governed his or her decisions.

At the same time, it is worth noting that too much emphasis on the action-theoretic perspective can generate its own fallacies. One of the most powerful resources of sociological inquiry is precisely the capacity to objectivate and aggregate social behavior using large-scale data collection and individualisme methodologique.

Furthermore, the analysis of social phenomena at this level can often generate results that are counterintuitive from an action-theoretic perspective.

Too much emphasis on the action-theoretic perspective, because of its proximity to common sense, can generate false assumptions about what must be going on at the aggregate level. Too much focus upon individual attitudes can lead us to make illegitimate generalizations about the characteristics of these attitudes in groups For example, the stability of a belief in a population only very rarely depends upon its stability in individuals.

There can be considerable volatility at the individual level, but so long as it runs with equal force both ways, its prevalence in the population will be unchanged Individualisme methodologique ten per cent of the population loses their faith in God every year, yet ten per cent have a conversion experience, then there will be no change in the overall level of religiosity.

It is also worth nothing that the action-theoretic level of analysis, with its focus upon the intentional states of the agent, can generate considerable mischief when combined haphazardly with evolutionary reasoning. The problem is that neither biological nor cultural evolution function in this way.

Thus the evolutionary perspective imposes a much greater break with the rationality-based perspective than many social theorists appreciate. Thus methodological individualism can sometimes impede the sort of radical objectivation of social phenomena individualisme methodologique the use of certain sociotheoretic models or tools requires.
