The essay discusses the sense and use of history in the sociological work as well as the utility of studying and making ‘history of sociology’ in a world under the sign of a more and more ‘fluid’ Modernity. For ‘classical sociology’ (that of Saint-Simon, Comte, Durkheim, Simmel, Weber, Benjamin etc: the Founding Fathers) history was a current term of comparison for constructing theories about the functioning of society as well as for being aware of the sense of contemporary time and actual action. From all these considerations then follows a strict invitation to read and re-read our Classics in order to verify through them current theoretical work, to enlarge our vision of time as well as to grasp consciousness of the potentialities of our still young and self-transforming discipline.
