First Published in 1980, Manfred S. Fringsâ translation of Problems of a Sociology of Knowledge makes available Max Schelerâs important work in sociological theory to the English-speaking world. The book presents the thinkerâs views on manâs condition in the twentieth-century and places it in a broader context of human history.
This book highlights Scheler as a visionary thinker of great intellectual strength who defied the pessimism that many of his peers could not avoid. He comments on the isolated, fragmented nature of manâs existence in society in the twentieth century but suggests that a âWorld-Age of Adjustmentâ is on the brink of existence. Scheler argues that the approaching era is a time for the disjointed society of the twentieth-century to heal its fractures and a time for different forms of human knowledge to come together in global understanding.
