Cognitive Sociology: A Theorethical Overview
Caterina Galluccio

In the ongoing quest to understand human thinking and social interactions in the social world, sociologists have developed methodological tools to draw their conclusions better. In this paper, the author explores the foundational theory of cultural sociology, the relationship between cultural sociology and cognitive science, the methodological challenges of cognitive culture, embodied cognition, and dual-process model of cognition. The research findings indicate that scholars are motivated by the need to comprehend cognition processes and social interaction to explore different aspects of cognitive sociology. The research further reveals that foundational theories played a significant role in governing future research since the information they provided is still relevant. Moreover, the methodological challenges faced in cognitive sociology drive the establishment of new methodological tools. Lastly, the most recent methodological tool applied in the study of cognitive processes is the dual-process model of cognition.
