Overview

This book provides a comprehensive examination of classical sociological theory. Each chapter focuses on one theorist and their ideas are organized into a social and historical perspective. Readers will enjoy the background information on each theorist covered in the book. These include such interesting highlights as Comte's days in military school, the death of Durkheim's son in World War I, Spencer's inability to commit to marriage, and Hegel's illegitimate son. Taking a critical and reflexive approach, the book also discusses how classical theory affects sociology today. For anyone interested in sociological theory, social philosophy, or the history of ideas.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Rather than centering on various themes or types of theories, this book introduces 11 individuals<-->Comte, Durkheim, Spencer, Hegel, Marx, Weber, Simmel, Freud, Pareto, Veblen, and Mead<-->and describes their background, ideas, and significance to the field. Also included is one social philosopher<-->Nietzsche<-->who criticized social science from its inception and predicted its decline. Two introductory chapters present the context for classical sociological theory and discuss the various theoretical orientations available. A concluding chapter discusses the heritage of classical sociological theory as a whole. Ashley teaches at the University of Wyoming; Orenstein at Wright State University. Annotation c.
