Des classes sociales aux inégalités: Le regard sociologique s’est-il déplacé ?

Abstract : Whereas the sociology of social classes was dominant in the 1960s and 1970s, it seems today to be overshadowed by the sociology of inequality. It was argued in the 1990s that this was due to the death or the gradual disappearance of social classes. The objective of this article is not to discuss this claim as such, but rather to try to understand the causes of this transformation that has occurred over the last fifty years, and to investigate how a sociological analysis in terms of social class can still be carried out today by way of a study of inequalities. In this respect, it is necessary to connect different areas of sociology that have thus far remained quite compartmentalized-work and culture, inequalities in terms of class and integration, class, gender, and race-and to adopt new measurement instruments that allow for comparisons at the European level.
