Sociologist Mikhail Sokolov responds to an interview with Victor Vakhshtayn

Mikhail Sokolov has post­ed detailed remarks fol­low­ing an inter­view with Victor Vakhshtayn pub­lished by T-invari­ant. Spoiler alert: «Russian social sci­en­tists … do not need to aban­don Russian mate­r­i­al in the past by eras­ing it along with the part of their lives ded­i­cat­ed to col­lect­ing it. If you under­stand how the men­tal maps of the social sci­ences are arranged, … you can, hope­ful­ly, avoid such sacrifices.»
