The Bloomsbury Handbook of World Theory
Sociology has a long-standing love affair with the nation-state. The rise of the discipline began with the emergence of the nation-state and nationalism. In the face of the refocusing of fields, methodologies, and vocabularies on the world, sociology is confronted with an often non-reflective nation-state paradigm and a state-centric vocabulary, which opposes the perception of the world as a perspective. In this chapter, I examine what the term
world accomplishes in sociology. I do so by raising the question of what happens when the world concept is appended to a particular form of sociological inquiry. Theories or theoretical models that allow the concept of world to function in a meaningful way with that knowledge domain can be considered as approaches of world society. Furthermore, here I investigate how the term ?worlding? bears on the theoretical knowledge and the future of sociology. The concept ?worlding sociology? reminds sociologists of the fact that in contemporary times they have to look at the world as one common ground. Any research on social structures, processes, and relations in the twenty-first century has to take into account that the global age requires stepping out of the national or continental container. A clear orientation toward the world is an indispensable requirement emanating from socialreality in current times. The chapter closes with an outlook on the visionary claims of a global turn of the human sciences, and I also present here sociology?s contributions toward this undertaking is presented.
