CORDERO, Rodrigo  e  SALINAS, Francisco J.. Towards a sociology of abstraction: notes on the relationship between the conceptual and the empirical. Cinta moebio [online]. 2017, n.58, pp.61-73. ISSN 0717-554X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-554X2017000100061.

This paper aims to contribute to the sociological study of "abstractions" as a key to comprehend the relations between the conceptual and the empirical. Our argument is that "abstraction" is a third term that challenges the customary divorce between these domains in sociology inasmuch as interrogates their complex mediation in social life. To do so, we explore the possibilities of a sociology of abstraction as an exercise of thinking and observation aimed at: (i) comprehending the immersion of social theory's practices of abstraction as immanent to the dynamics of abstraction of society; and (ii) deciphering the concrete movement of concepts that give form to society and durability to social relations. Thus, we intend to show that the project of a sociology of abstractions consists in an unavoidable reflexive retreat that displays concepts in order to reach what is beyond concepts.
