This& book provides a comprehensive examination of classical sociological theory by introducing students to the life, times, and ideas of the figures who have had the greatest influence on the development of the field. & Each chapter focuses on one theorist and his ideas, organized into a social and historical perspective. Students will enjoy reading the background information on each theorist covered in the book. These include such interesting highlights as Comte& #39; s days in military school, the death of Durkheim& #39; s son in World War I, Spencer& #39; s inability to commit to marriage, and Hegel& #39; s illegitimate son. Taking a critical and reflexive approach, the text also discusses how classical theory affects sociology today.
