Diversity and Worth. A Retrospective Account. David Stark in Conversation with Filippo Barbera



This interview takes its point of departure from the early stages of David Stark's career and it goes from the analysis of capitalism in East European countries to the logics of worth in contemporary market economies. It shows how ideas and concepts of Luc Boltanski and Laurent Thévenot's book, "On Justification: Economies of Worth" in the mid-1980s have been originally elaborated and empirically applied to economic and organizational sociology. Topics such as the similarities and differences between European and American sociology, the standard format of publication and the scientific careers of social scientist are discussed as well.
