The Sociogony
Social Facts and the Ontology of Objects, Things, and Monsters

Drawing on Hegel, Marx, Weber, and Durkheim, Mark Worrell re-examines the social ontology of "social facts' in the wake of the shift from bourgeois liberalism to global neoliberalism.

The Sociogony re-examines the social ontology of what Durkheim calls 'social facts' in the light of critical and progressive hostilities to the facticity of facts and the necessity of moral absolutes in the shift from bourgeois liberalism to a neoliberal global order. The introduction offers a wide-ranging rumination on the concept of the absolute after its apparent downfall; the chapter on facts turns the problem of external authority on its head and the chapter dealing with the sociogony situates facts in a process of generation, rule, and decay. Drawing heavily on the works of Hegel, Marx, Weber, and Durkheim, the resulting synthesis is what the author refers to as a Marxheimian Social Theory that offers a new map and a stable ontology for the homeless mind.
