The goal of this article is to reflect on the conceptions of sociology that underpin
some of the most interesting perspectives in what can be referred to contemporary
constitutional sociology. Although it is not a unified program, its general orientation
can be defined as an attempt to enquiry into the transformation of processes and
structures with constitutional reach in contemporary modernity. The article begins
by discussing the disciplinary claim that in my view is central to contemporary
constitutional sociology and then compares it with the main aspects of the idea of
philosophical sociology on which this author has been working in the past few years.
I then discuss three main aspects that are key for both approaches: the problem
of methodological nationalism, the foundation of their claim to universalism and,
finally, the tension between descriptive and normative claims.
