This book is founded on one general goal: developing a better understanding and evaluation of the sociology of Norbert Elias. The texts presented here discuss the specificities, the strengths, and the limits of Elias's sociology by looking at its similarities and differences with other important classical and contemporary social theories. We believe this book could raise the interest of anyone who works with Norbert Elias, reads classical and contemporary theory, or, as Norbert Elias would say, studies the figurations in which we live.
