Myth and Reality in the Discovery and Representation of Childhood
The issue of social inequality occupies a central position within the discipline of sociology. Ever since the emergence of social thought, many discussions based on theory and empirical research have examined both the different forms of social inequality and the social contexts within which it is found (the political, the economic, the family, gender relations, race relations, and so on). In a similar way to what occurs throughout social science, the theories proposed and the results that follow are highly varied. They differ considerably with regard to how they approach an issue; their level of abstraction and theoretical scope; and their methodological implications with respect to the empirical study of social inequality.
