Abstract [en]

This paper uses the work and employs the tools of the German philosopher Martin Heideggerto attempt to improve sociology. Heidegger’s thinking is employed primarily to undo a paradoxof sociology. Sociology focuses on the social, but starts with the assumption of essentially nonsocialegos that somehow generate a social world. This ‘egologism’ has caused sociology tooccupy itself with a number of pseudo-problems. We argue that Heidegger develops what we calla ‘socio-ontological’ approach, which means that human beings are always already social and dwelloriginarily in a social world. To present this ‘social foundation for sociology’ is the contribution ofthis paper.
