Some Uses of the Concept of Alienation in Social Theory

Auther : Mostafa H. Nagi

This paper deals with various concepts of alienation befor and after Marx Calvin, the Romantics (including Rouseau, Friederich Schiller, Ludwig Feuerbach), and Hegel, all came before Marx and used alienation as a philosophical metaphor describing man’s essence and existence.

Marx and his immediate followers (Ferdinand Toennies, Max Weber, Emile Durkheim, Karl Mannheim and George Simmel) viewed man’s alienation as a condition of sociological discontent.

Modern social, theorists have largely departed from Marx’s macrosociological perspective on alienation and favor a micro-social-psychological orientation.

Finally, the paper discusses some of the conceptual and empirical problems involved in dealing with alienation. One of these problems is the difficulty of establishing a precise definition which will embrace the various dimensions of alienation. Another problem involves the difficulty of subjecting alienation to adequate psychological diagnosis and measurement.
