What is Sociology?

S
Shreya C.
06 Oct 0 0

Sociology is a critical social science concerned with the study of society and human behaviour and relationships.

                       Auguste Comte was the first to develop the concept of Sociology. He believed that all societies develop and progress through the following stages:-

  • Religious
  • Metaphysical
  • Scientific

Auguste Comte referred to Sociology as the 'Queen of Social Sciences' because it embodies the basics of all the other Social Sciences. According to him, 'Sociology is the scientific study of society.'

It will be better to say; there are as many definitions of Sociology as there are Sociologists.

According to Max Weber, 'Sociology is the study of social action.'

According to Simmel, 'Sociology is the study of social groups based on social interaction.'

According to Tonnies, 'Sociology is the study of human living together.'

We can say, Sociology is the study of social life, social change, social causes and consequences of human behaviour.
