Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses the tool kit of economic sociology. It begins by examining two of the most important concepts in modern economic sociology, namely: embeddedness and field. It is followed by a discussion of a sociological concept of interest and an interest-based concept of institutions. The article also presents some arguments posed in the text, one of which states that economic sociology would do well in some respects to follow the example of political economy and pay more attention to analytical economics and its general approach.

Keywords: tool kit, economic sociology, embeddedness, field, sociological concept of interest, interest-based concept of institutions, analytical economics
