    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The present article provides an example of what a&amp;nbsp;normative methodological assessment based on the detailed&amp;nbsp;examination of&amp;nbsp;sociological work can contribute in terms of addressing problems in the social&amp;nbsp;sciences. Specifically, the&amp;nbsp;article scrutinises research featured in a highly&amp;nbsp;esteemed general sociology journal and focuses on ways in which the&amp;nbsp;reported&amp;nbsp;research is embedded within a network of connections both to other academic&amp;nbsp;work as well to the social world at&amp;nbsp;large. The case is made that typical&amp;nbsp;connection-making practices actually constitute gestures toward implied or token&amp;nbsp;connections rather than well-supported and carefully articulated ones, thus&amp;nbsp;resulting in studies which, although presented&amp;nbsp;as if they were part of a&amp;nbsp;continuous expanse of land, are in fact insular. The actual insularity of&amp;nbsp;sociological research is not&amp;nbsp;only detrimental to the research itself, but is&amp;nbsp;also largely responsible for perpetuating disciplinary dysfunction and&amp;nbsp;incoherence. It can be combated with the cultivation of sensibilities relating&amp;nbsp;to interpretation and argumentation.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
