'Through the Lens of the Pre-Modern': the theory of myth and sociology?

Please join us for this Criminology and Sociology research seminar - all are welcome.

Luke Doggett's cademic interests generally revolve around the role that myth and ritual have played in human life. In his doctoral research drew heavily upon key philosophical contributions to the topic such as those of Hans Blumenberg and Ernst Cassirer, as well as the contributions of anthropologists such as Walter Burkert and psychologists such as Sigmund Freud. Luke maintains a sociological focus in two ways: firstly by emphasising the importance of Emile Durkheim's contention that collective morality is the focus of mythic symbolism; and secondly by emphasising the importance of sociology's concern to understand the modern era and its development in the light of this.
