Abstract

This review essay presents and discusses revisionist approaches to the sociological canon with special emphasis on G. K. Bhambra and J. Holmwood’s (2021) recent book Colonialism and modern social theory. Hereby, we draw attention to recent calls to open up the early sociological canon in order not only to open up for a more adequate account of modernity but also to address critically the concepts and categories that form mainstream sociology
