About this book


The axis of this book is the articulation between the concept of collective subjectivity with the themes of social evolution and social creativity on the one hand, plus contemporary modernity and social change on the other. Drawing on theoretical ideas on reflexivity, creativity and history, it proposes a discussion of fundamental aspects of contemporary society, dealing with global modernity, economic sociology and social policy, via concrete discussions about Brazil and Britain.
