ROSIE, A., BUFTON, S. and HIRST, J. (2001). Sociology as a moral discourse: a case study of social theory teaching. British journal of sociology of education, 22 (2), 217-226.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper draws on case-study data collected from undergraduate students taking courses in social theory. The paper sets out an approach to Sociology as a discipline that promotes an understanding of moral categories. Drawing on the work of Bernstein, Benhabib and Hird, a model of 'generalised' and 'concrete other' provides a framework for understanding the discipline of Sociology and its pedagogy. A case study of student experience reveals the complexity of the 'concrete other' and how a more personalised and social interventionist account can be developed through Hird's concept of 'inner diversity'.
