The German Sociological Divide (Thomas Scheffer)

This week, The Annex discusses a cleavage in German sociology that resulted in the formation of the Academy of Sociology, an organization that splintered from the German Sociological Association in a spat that involved questions of scientific rigor in sociology. Here's the back story: Background This summer, Philip Cohen from the University of Maryland tweeted: To be a social science discipline sociology needs to adopt standards for transparency and reproducibility. All science is moving this way. Some parts of the discipline can't or won't. This may solidify qual/quant as science/notscience & I'm not sure the discipline can survive it— Philip N Cohen (@familyunequal) August 13, 2019 Stephen Vaisey of Duke University commented: I don't think this maps onto qual/quant neatly, but I think sociology could survive a split. Fields have done it (e.g., anthro). And others have few institutionalized subfields (e.g., PS). No reason to force us all to live in the same "house" *if* we are pursuing different goals. https://t.co/dSquII7WGH— Stephen Vaisey (@vaiseys) August 14, 2019 This tweet generated multiple, very interesting reactions, including this one from Fabian Ochsenfeld. In Germany, we now have two sociological associations, @DGSoziologie and @akadsoz. Orientation to theory and replication standards were explicitly mentioned as reasons to split (qual/quant not, but there's a correlation). @socannex— Fabian Ochsenfeld (@FOchsenfeld) August 21, 2019 ...
