Abstract

This chapter reconsiders the relations between conceptions of sociology, social science, social policy, and social studies, and assesses their relationship to anthropology, geography, history, and the humanities. It examines varying views of the nature of sociology and its core concerns, arguing for the recognition of a division of labour among diverse approaches to the subject.
