Doctoral programme Sociology simultaneously and consecutively deals with sociological theories as part of a complex and fluid network of convergent and/or antagonistic sociological ideas. Thus it will eschew the common classification of sociological theories, together with their division into classical or contemporary ones and their treatment as quite clearly separated and self-sufficient sets of complex ideas. In line with this orientation, the analytical focus will be, in particular, on convergent theoretical content, namely ideas providing for sociological theoretic synthesis. This goal will be mainly accomplished by systematic discussion and treatment of the question of diverse sociological approaches to recognition, operationalisation and theoretical justification of key sociological dichotomy of notions.
