The Program of Ethnomethodology

  • Harold Garfinkel
Part of the Beiträge zur Praxeologie / Contributions to Praxeology book series (BPCP)


The Program manuscript is a talk given by Garfinkel in 1960 that explains the program of ethnomethodology and its relationship to the study of society in the context of a critical examination of sociology as a discipline, with the recommendation that to abandon the concern for a detailed examination of commonsense activities abandons sociology itself and turns sociological questions over to biological and physical sciences.
