Action theory (philosophy)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Action theory (philosophy), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Action theory. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally moving or duplicating content, please be sure you have followed the procedure at Wikipedia:Splitting by acknowledging the duplication of material in edit summary to preserve attribution history.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 22:12, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

FYI, moving an article is a better way to go, rather than copy/pasting. It preserves the edit history. tedder (talk) 22:17, 8 September 2009 (UTC)


Thumbs up, the lede is starting to be banged into shape. I'd prefer the first or second sentence convey something of the vastness of classes and their totalising nature in class society. That's a thought, a second sentence for just that. Fifelfoo (talk) 16:11, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Fair. I understand (and believe) class is systemic; that ideology is on all levels often "unconscious" and unchosen in a Gramscian sense. But it's also important an article is really easy for a layman to understand, and important this article in particular has a holistic definition of class, not one purely related to Marxism. Weberian, feminist, postcolonial and global concepts, etc etc. --Tomsega (talk) 16:20, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Classical sociologists & key figures[edit]

Hi Tomsega, please, look at my contribution in Talk:Sociology before undoing my changes. -- €pa (talk) 21:55, 6 October 2009 (UTC)


Hi Thom,

I noticed that you recently added the sociology template to the article on labelling. I think it would be more appropriate on labeling theory. If you look at the two articles you will see the difference.

Something slightly annoying is that the labeling theory article has the American spelling, whereas the labelling article has the British spelling. This may have led to your misunderstanding.

Also, I notice that you classed the article as a start class on the talk page. This is probably true so I will remove the tag at the bottom of the article describing it as a stub.

Improving sociology idea[edit]

Inspired by this comment: if we can get a grad class to improve sociology for GA/FA, it should generate a flurry of activity :) GA reviews have big backlogs, educational project ones are rare and need to be expedited, but most others can wait for a few weeks (or months) - not that I think it is a good situation, but backlogs are backlogs... --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 01:09, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of 100 Greatest Britons[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is 100 Greatest Britons. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/100 Greatest Britons (2nd nomination). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:08, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

March 2010[edit]

Information.svg Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Sociology of race and ethnic relations a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. Robofish (talk) 17:29, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

That was an automated message, but to explain: last September, you moved the content of Race relations to the title Ethnic relations by cutting and pasting, and in December you did the same again to move it to its current title. This is undesirable as it prevents the whole history being easily viewed at once; the page move function should be used instead. I have asked an administrator to perform a history merge of these articles. Robofish (talk) 17:31, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Sociological positivism[edit]

I am not sure if I agree with the merger. There is enough content - and notability - to split it back, I think. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 16:25, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

The thing is, when 'positivism' alone is cited, one should mean the positivism starting with Comte and carrying on as a tradition through social science. 'Logical positivism' is what one would always say with respect to the analytical philosophical tradition. The old 'sociological positivism' page diluted all efforts and was pretty useless. I think it's appropriate to have one page for positivism, one page for logical positivism. I really think it's fine as it is! ;) --Tomsega (talk) 17:50, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, I won't insist on the split for now. Btw, in the future - could you reply on my talkpage? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 22:10, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject Sociology Newsletter: II (April 2010)[edit]

Sociology ProjectNews • April 2010

The Sociology WikiProject is conducting a roll call (or min-census, if you prefer). More then five years down the road, we have over 50 members, but we don't know how many of them are still active in the sociology area. If you are or want to become once again an active contributor to the sociology content on Wikipedia, please move your name from the inactive to the active list on our roll call.

In other news, we have reactivated the newsletter :) At least, for this announcement. We also have a new, automated to do listing, an active tag and assess project (which has identified about 1,800 sociology articles on Wikipedia, and assessed about 1,3000 of them), and three new userboxes for your self-identification pleasure :) On a final note, I highly recommend watchlisting the Wikipedia:WikiProject Sociology page, so you can be aware of the ongoing discussions.

request for some help[edit]

Do you know much about Rousseau AND Durkheim? Slrubenstein | Talk 11:46, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Hmmm.. depends on the question! They were in my opinion the premier French thinkers of the 18th and 19th centuries respectively so the relationship must be fairly strong.. --Tomsega (talk) 12:06, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

I would think so too. The question is, do you know enough of their work, or the history of French social thought during this time period, to be able to explain how certain concepts of and questions about society developed in French socialthought from one to the other? I know enough to kind of fudge something, which is not good enough for Wikipedia, which is why I am looking for someone who knows their work and how they are used or have been discussed either by intellectual historians or historians of sociology...

Normal type[edit]

In this edit you deleted a "context" tag, and later I put another one there and wrote this edit summary:

"Context" tag. I SUSPECT that this may be about types of PEOPLE, but I DON'T KNOW, even after reading the whole article!

Is making a thing like that clear too much of a challenge? Michael Hardy (talk) 11:45, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

social theory question[edit]

Tom, do you know the work of Rousseau and Durkheim well enough to address the tradition that links them, or the ways they together mark important positions in French social theory? (apologies if i have asked you this already) Slrubenstein | Talk 16:12, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Well, his philosophy (like most classical political philosophy) emphasised strongly the idea of a social body or organism, and he described solitude as 'unnatural' and association as being beneficial. Alluding to the ideas of organic solidarity and anomie in Durkheim. Rouseau emphasised the idea of a general 'will' for men to do good, yet thought our social institutions often ruin us. I haven't really read Rousseau in enough depth but he was very much a humanist in the sense of believing humans to be natural good... I disagree. He made it apparent he thought that, if the majority of people believe something, then it must be right. Clearly writing before totalitarianism as it arrived in modernity! Specific to Durkheim.. can't really think of much else right now, sorry! --Tomsega (talk) 16:24, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I am not sure I agree with Rousseau either .. but I am trying to work out a (small) way to improve the culture article and I wish I knew someone who really felt comfortabl with French social theory, spanning from Rousseau and Compte to Durkheim and Mauss. Slrubenstein | Talk 17:14, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

A favor[edit]

Hey Tomsega, It's been great editing the Sociology page with you. I want to ask you for a favor though: could you please put more info in your edit summaries?

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:33, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Sociology: Positivism section[edit]

The Anti-Positivism section has two very long quotes and I thought that for balance the Positivism section needed a long quote. The quote by Ward adds interesting and important information not available elsewhere in the article, namely that Sociology is the least positivist of all the sciences and that it is also the most complex of the sciences. This information is important to a young student exploring Sociology for the first time. Longsun (talk) 12:20, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

I have corrected your anti-positivism bias in the Sociology article. Durkheim would agree with me. Longsun (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 00:35, 12 November 2010 (UTC).

WikiProject Sociology Newsletter: III (December 2010)[edit]

Sociology ProjectNews • December 2010
Spreading the meme since August 2006

The Sociology WikiProject third newsletter is out!

According to our April mini-census, we have 15 active members, 6 semi-active ones and 45 inactive. Out of those, 4 active, 3 semi-active and 1 inactive members have added themselves to corresponding categories since the mini-census. The next one is planned, roughly, for sometime next year. The membership list has been kept since 2004.

On that note, nobody has ever studied WikiProjects from the sociological perspective... if you are interesting in researching Wikipedia, see Wikipedia:Research and wiki-research-l listerv.

Moving from research to teaching, did you know that many teachers and instructors are teaching classes with Wikipedia? This idea is getting support from the Wikimedia Foundation, and some really useful tools have been created recently. I have experience with that, having taught several undergad classes, so feel free to ask me questions on that!

And as long as I am talking about professional issues, if any of you is going to any sociological conferences, do post that to our project - perhaps other members are going there too?

In other news: the a automated to do listing reported in the April issue went down shortly afterwards, but seems to be on the path to reactivation. We still have an active tag and assess project, and comparing the numbers to the April report, we have identified about 350 more sociology-related articles (from 1,800 to 2,150) and assessed about 100 (from 1,300 to 1,400).

We now have a listing of most popular sociology-related pages. It is updated on the 1st of every month, starting with August, and reports which of our sociology-tagged articles are most frequently read. Of course, GIGO holds true, so after looking at it right now and trying to determine what is our most popular article, my first action was to shake my head and remove Criminal Minds (which, perhaps not too surprisingly, outranks all sociology articles in period tested). Second item I noticed it this month's Industrial Revolution, beating Criminal Minds, that moved from close to 30th position in August/September, to 9th in October and 2nd in November. If you'd like to discuss this or any other trends, please visit WT:SOCIOLOGY!

Finally, with the reactivation of Article Alerts, we are getting our own here. Bookmark that page so you can keep track of sociology related deletion debates, move debates, good and feature article discussions, and more.

Our first task force (Wikipedia:WikiProject Sociology/Social movements task force) was created (1 June 2010).

If you have basic or better graphic skills, our projects needs a dedicated barnstar (award) (currently the closest we can get is the Society Barnstar.

As always, I highly recommend watchlisting the Wikipedia:WikiProject Sociology page, so you can be aware of the ongoing discussions.

List of tallest buildings and structures in London[edit]

I disagree with the inclusion of the Shard in the main list whilst it's still far from complete, it introduces obvious inconsistencies and to my perception it is out of place. Do you have any argument to offer in support of keeping it? The UK list has so far resisted including the Shard in the main section, which is entitled 'Tallest completed buildings'. Do you see any reason why the London list should take a different approach? Paravane (talk) 20:08, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

I share the view that planned and unfinished buildings should not be included on the list, for obvious reasons... with the exception of buildings which have already surpassed the height of the current tallest building, and even then they should only be included as "-" rather than "1st" on the list - this style has been followed by the List of tallest structures in Tokyo page and I think it's quite effective. --Tomsega (talk) 07:25, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I note that your edits of the List of tallest buildings and structures in London have so far been almost exclusively devoted to amending details of the Shard. I have removed the Shard once again from the main list, pending further discussion, and given some reasons on the article's talk page.Paravane (talk) 23:40, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

The Wagner article is in need of some help[edit]

We're in a bit of a pickle in the Wagner discussion page. The issues concerns Social class (sociology) and the phrase supposedly common Germanic past and has now been dismissed by some editors as inconsequential.

At the end of the Wagner discussion page (under Edit War solution topic) there issome suggested courses of action that I was requested to list, from my point of view. Please help. Just take fast look. Thank you

In the introduction, removed as non consequential

  • In his own era he furthermore provided the newly emerged middle class with a medium to transfer its familial and political conflicts into a myth of supposedly common Germanic past.

In the Biography chapter removed as non consequential

  • Richard Wagner was born into a lower middle class family
