This series of textbooks focuses on the problems contemporary psychology must face; the second part concentrates on the topic of social behaviour and social structure. The complicated and ambiguous relationship between these two key notions has intellectually challenged the theoretically-oriented social science for decades. This volume, presented by a team composed of experienced specialists as well as promising scholars of a younger generation, provides a varied spectrum of approaches (from neo-positivism, through microsociology and macrosociology to discourse analysis or theory of games), which up to now have not been published as a comprehensive whole. These high-quality texts are intended for students with elementary knowledge in the field who would like to broaden their horizons as well as for sociologists and other experts who want to keep in touch with contemporary theoretical sociology, its problems, polemics and development in the field.
