      Book Overview This volume concerns philosophical issues that arise from the practice of anthropology and sociology. The essays cover a wide range of issues, including traditional questions in the philosophy of social science as well as those specific to . This wide-ranging and authoritative book is the most informative sociology dictionary available of its kind. Compiled by a team of sociological experts, it is packed with over 2, entries.

    stressing empiricism was the distinction of sociology from theology, philosophy, and metaphysics. This also resulted in sociology being recognized as an empirical science. This early sociological approach, supported by August Comte, led to positivism, a methodological approach based on sociological naturalism. Herbert Spencer, English sociologist, philosopher, and early advocate of the theory of evolution. He advocated the preeminence of the individual over society and of science over religion and is remembered for his doctrine of social Darwinism. His magnum opus was The Synthetic Philosophy ().   Randall Collins traces the movement of philosophical thought in ancient Greece, China, Japan, India, the medieval Islamic and Jewish world, medieval Christendom, and modern Europe. What emerges from this history is a social theory of intellectual change, one that avoids both the reduction of ideas to the influences of society at large and the purely contingent local 4/5(3).

    This book concentrates on the impact of philosophy of science on sociology and other disciplines. It argues that the impact of the philosophy of science on sociology from the rise of the Vienna Circle until the mids resulted in a deep-reaching and, in the author’s view, undesirable methodological reorientation in sociology. Positivism was Comte's way of describing the science needed for sociology to takes its place among the other scientific disciplines. His core work, "The Positive Philosophy of Auguste Comte" was translated by a British-born philosopher named Harriet Martineau (). Thomas Samuel Kuhn (/ k uː n /; J – J ) was an American philosopher of science whose book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions was influential in both academic and popular circles, introducing the term paradigm shift, which has since become an English-language mater: Harvard University.
