(p.1) Introduction
Sociological Beginnings
Liverpool University Press

The introduction looks at the emergence of sociology and presents a brief biography of the five main key speakers whose works are collected in this book to trace their relevance in how the science of sociology came about. In the early 1900s, the science of sociology was still relatively new and there were signs of it appearing sporadically in research papers like the ones from social scientists such as Emile Durkheim and Dirk Käsler. Sociology gradually became recognized as a science. The introduction also provides a laconic biography of five speakers: George Simmel, Ferdinand Tönnies, Max Weber, Werner Sombart and Ernst Troeltsch and looks at their importance to the beginnings of sociology.

Keywords:   sociology, biography, science of sociology, Emile Durkheim, Dirk Käsler, George Simmel, Ferdinand Tönnies, Max Weber, Werner Sombart, Ernst Troeltsch
