Abstract
There are four theoretical theses in English Canadian sociology concerning specificity of English Canadian ethno-cultural identity. They target at explaining historical-cultural processes minding economical, social, and political dimensions. These theses are the following: political economy of dependence, red Tories, vertical mosaic, and communication. Major themes of the four theses on the English Canadian specificity are as follows: dominant mode of perception and thought in form of imperial power; transportations and communications construct new visible and thought images; ethno-cultural community in a nation-state forms a collective action. These themes instead of excluding mutually enforce each other and enable formation of such a discursive space within which the present date debates are held on specificity of the English Canadian ethno-cultural identity.
