In his recent piece in the Journal of Sociology, Eduardo de la Fuente (2007) argues cogently that the relation between culture and the social needs to be returned to sociology’s main menu. We fully support this idea, but we are concerned that an important element is missing. It is not just missing from de la Fuente’s piece, it is missing from the work of all the main players in the field he describes so well: the Romanticists, the Classicists, and the group of which he himself is a part, the group which wants to employ greater reflexivity in seeking to move the debate beyond the Romanticism versus Classicism debate.
