Abstract [en]

Ethical consequences of the sociological classics In this paper I would like to challenge the ethical position taken by the sociological classics and conceptualize the present as ethical differentiated partly as a consequence of the classics positions.Ethics are the starting point for most sociological thinking historically. For Durkheim (1893) the question asked by philosophers on what kind of ethics should guide us in our actions was altered into investigate what ethics are guiding our actions. Weber (1914) did the distinction between different actions where only the value-oriented rational social action related actively to ethical dimensions. Had their basic question not been what is influencing action (Durkheim) alt. what do one recognize as having influence on ones actions (Weber) but instead what are the ethical consequences of ones actions, the sociological task would have been very different, in terms of ethical positioning.However, with this focus by the classics on what influence the social have on ones actions, the groundwork was paved for what I call an ethical differentiation when it comes to the social consequences of ones actions: different social influence result in different social actions, with different ethical consequences.
