Philosophy, Phobosophy and Sociology

Campion, M. (2007) Philosophy, Phobosophy and Sociology. In: The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) and Sociological Association of Aotearoa New Zealand (SAANZ) Joint Conference (2007), 4 - 7 December 2007, Auckland, New Zealand



Works by Nigel Pleasants and Ian Hunter are considered in such a way as to display key relevant features of their version of philosophy and to facilitate a conceptualisation of phobosophy. This process leads to the conclusion that we might be wise to treat sociology, along with many other forms of human activity, as creative activities rather than as forms of meticulous description.
