Abstract : This paper reflects on the implications of the contemporary diversity of intellectual approaches to the study of social movements. Sketching some of the key dimensions of difference in the field, it explores the norma-tive intellectual questions raised by /acknowledging this diversity as well as the intellectual history questions involved in explaining it.
