The article focuses on the influence of European social theorist Norbert Elias on the shaping of a Mexican tradition of sociological research. The author considers three stages of this process including the translation and reception of the author's works, its integration into existing disciplinary discussions and its critical assimilation as part of a new body of knowledge that informs disciplinary practice. The author also refers to some of the key concepts developed by Elias related to the conflict between social classes and the sociology of knowledge.
