    Abstract

    In response to the imperialistic claims of the 'new institutional economics', a 'new economic sociology' has recently emerged that suggests the possibility of important changes in the relationship between the two disciplines. These sociological initiatives are placed in the context of, first, a discussion of the main methodological differences between sociology and economics and, second, a brief historical survey of some important aspects their substantive relationship and the emergence and consolidation of the traditional intellectual division of labour. Given the organizational structure of the two disciplines and, in particular, their professional separation, it seems unlikely that these interesting attempts to explore a redefinition of traditional boundaries will have any marked impact.
