The Sociological Movement: Results and Prospects

  • Alan Hunt


A conclusion is rarely simply a conclusion. It is therefore perhaps useful to indicate at the outset what the specific issues are with which this chapter is concerned. The method of exposition has been to study the writings of selected individuals and groups who have contributed to the sociological movement in law, but the conclusion is not significantly concerned with making final pronouncements upon individuals. The explicit motivation has been a concern with the contemporary situation of the movement. It has however been necessary to insist that the intellectual roots and preoccupations of that movement be explored since its contemporary exponents frequently have little understanding of the historical process of which they constitute a part.
