AbstractUlysses Santamaria and Pierre Achard, Utopia and Sociology Habermasian, Questions in Sociology To understand how the recent works of J. Habermas concern the discipline of sociology, it is necessary to take into account the ethical and normative dimension that he adopts, along with the transdisciplinary point of view (within the social and human sciences) that it implies. The disciplinary point of view can, perhaps, only be objectivist and descriptive. However, the convergence can take place if the realism of the normative perspectives and the universality of "modernity" that has been elaborated in the Occident throughout the past two centuries is questioned. It is also useful to take into account the active dimension of the production of sociological knowledge. We render these reflections more concrete by examining the concepts of communication, of society, of the State, of the public and the private, and of the lived world.
