Abstract

As usual, Andrew Abbott helps social scientists to improve their approach to empirical work, suggesting witty remarks on sensitive aspects of social theory. I will stress my comments in the form of questions, trying also to open some new heuristic suggestions. The article is focused on (a) Micro-foundations and Interaction Mechanisms; (b) On the Relational Character of the Explanatory Process; (c) On Legitimacy; and finally (d) Interaction, Legitimate Devices, and Identity Politics.
