Florian Znaniecki’s Culturalism
Conclusion / 158
158 AVective Society: Sentiments and Symbolic Interactions Conclusion After the ‘cold war’ ended, Huntington typically has returned to the problems that were the focus of attention after the First and Second World Wars, problems deﬁned as the issue of the order of civilization. Znaniecki’s conceptions consequently are pre- sented here as placed within these conﬁnes. The work Ludzie teraêniejsi a cywilizacja przysz∏oÊci [Contemporary People and the Civilization of the Future] (1934) constitutes the horizon of any sociological considerations, including those on social sentiments. If, to a greater extent than ideologies, politics and economics, cultural identities and diVerences become the central question ( Huntington 1996: 21), then the culturalistic approach developed by Znaniecki, and in particular the research on sentiments on the ground of diversity of values which generate cultural conﬂicts, currently shows its full actuality.
