The term ‘methodological nationalism’ was invented by Herminio Martins (1974) in the meaning of a critique of social science limited by nation-state framework. Today it denotes theoretic and methodological position of sociology and other social sciences, from which perspective national state appears as a natural and necessary form of modern society. Wimmer and Schiller differentiate three modes of methodological nationalism: ignorance, naturalization and territorialization. Ulrich Beck has launched the great world debate on methodological nationalism at the turn of this millennium. He is convinced that national gaze has become real limit of sociological perception, which rests on a presumption about national state as a ‘container’ of social relations. Hence it is not able to grasp current global processes, in particular ‘inner globalization’ of national societies. Beck stands for a new approach denoted as ‘methodological cosmopolitism’ understood as science of transnational reality. However, some theoreticians have already raised their voices against such a radical negation of the whole theoretical tradition. They agree that methodological nationalism should be overcome, but from within social theory. It has not been homogenous so far and reflected controversial history of nation-state societies as unfinished project of modernity. Wilmmer and Schiller, rightly warn that it would certainly be naďve to think that we will ever develop a theoretical approach not profoundly influenced by social and political forces around us.
