This is an important point for Parsons. It is on this basis that he rejects ‘idealistic’ theoretical approaches which, while underlining the element of will in action T h e c l a s sic a l at t e m p t at s y n t h e si s 35 and stressing human freedom, almost always – this at least is Parsons’ interpretation – forget the (material) conditions to which action is subject. Parsons thus interprets idealism as a kind of ‘emanationism’, a way of thinking according to which human action emanates, as it were, from a collective spirit, as the mere expression of a Volksseele or national soul, certain world views, ideals, ideational complexes, etc.

We need to recall at this point that Parsons, the American, placed European thinkers at the centre of his interpretations. This is relevant because when Parsons’ study was published the influence of the European social sciences in the USA had become fairly negligible, if we disregard the increasing number of émigrés from Germany arriving in the country from 1933 onwards. Before the First World War, almost all famous American scientists studied in Europe and particularly in Germany at one time or another over the course of their career.

93) However, if a theory that conceives of action as exclusively utility-oriented is incapable of satisfactorily explaining social order or its origins, then – Parsons concludes – the utilitarian model of action must be wrong or at least inadequate from the outset. But before following Parsons’ line of argument any further, let us pause for a moment to briefly summarize Parsons’ ideas so far rather more abstractly. Every sociologically interesting theory of action – and utilitarianism is or entails such a theory – must be able to explain how social order can come about.
