Mappers of Society The Lives and Legacies of Great Sociologists by Ronald Fernandez

Fernandez examines the lives and ideas of sociologists who shaped the main contours of the discipline. Weber, Marx, Durkheim, and Simmel fashioned the early ideas and approaches of sociology, and their ideas are still central to the discipline. Veblen, Mead, Goffman, and Berger added crucial conceptual approaches; they also serve to underscore the length and breadth of Sociology as a science.


This introduction to the classics of sociological theory combines the conversational style of Robert Heilbroner's The Worldly Philosophers with the organizational strategy of Lewis Coser's Masters of Sociological Thought...[t]he book indicates how theory might make students
own lives more understandable. Recommended. General readers and undergraduates
