Description
Summary:The 'Chicago School of Sociology' means a number of different things to different people. References to the 'Chicago School' in the literature are quite varied and the constructions of the 'school' are very much a function of the commentator's academic endeavour, predeliction and preconceptions as well as a view of what a 'school' of sociology is and what purpose and role it plays in the history of sociology. This book directs itself to examining the preponderant constructions of the 'Chicago School' which have grown up over the last quarter century. Before beginning this examination, some introductory remarks about the nature of 'school', the academic concerns of those who refer to a 'Chicago School' and the type of construction of a 'Chicago School' are necessary.
