Social Capital: An Interdisciplinary Concept
Castle, Emery N.
Rural Sociology, v67 n3 p331-349 Sep 2002
This paper sets forth an interdisciplinary interpretation of social capital that will permit the concept to be used with precision in scholarly and scientific work. If the interpretation is accepted, the social capital concept cannot be regarded as a social theory, nor as a statement of normative goals. The interdisciplinary concept proposed here is applied to rural studies. (Contains 1 figure.)
