A synthesis of social theory, this book spans the period from the Enlightenment to the early 20th century. It examines the Enlightenment in terms of its relevance for the later development of sociological theory and traces themes spanning this period to the 19th-century sociologists and the seminal thinkers of the turn of the century. The book also illustrates the connections between sociology and other parallel disciplines such as philosophy, history, economics and biology. It also offers in-depth treatment of the three main sociological traditions and detailed discussions of the work of Comte, Spencer, Marx, Durkheim, Weber, A. Smith, Cooley, Mead and Thomas.
