Analytical sociology is a research strategy

Edling, Christofer LU (2012) In Sociologica 2012(1).
Abstract
Analytical sociology is a methodological strategy aimed at refining theoretically informed

empirical social research. Given the central assumption that the role of sociology is to

explain macro level phenomena, analytical sociology makes pragmatic use of abstract models of

social action and interaction, such as the DBO-model. The realization that it is not a philosophy

or a psychology, nor a universal theory of the social, implies that it is by actually explaining social

phenomena that analytical sociology will make a name for itself.
