It is argued that a renewed reception of the works of the Polish and American scholar should be furthered by the cultural turn in sociology. If the new cultural sociology is to get firm grounds it should go beyond the reaction against structural-functional normativism in search of classic studies of cultural dynamics as those of Florian Znaniecki. The authoress examines the reasons for blurring the influence of Znaniecki on 20th century sociologists, including Talcott Parsons and Alfred Schütz, and presents an overall review of his contribution to cultural sociology.
