Invitation to Sociology: A Humanistic Perspective

By: Peter Berger

Hailed as the most popularly read, adapted, anthologized, and incorporated primer on sociology ever written for modern readers, Invitation to Sociology is now available in e-format. Written by acclaimed scholar Peter L. Berger, this classic introduction lays the groundwork for a clear understanding of sociology. Viewing sociology in the humanist tradition, Berger points out its affinity to history and philosophy as well as its need for scientific procedures, and presents the contributions of some of the most important sociologists of the time, including Max Weber, Émile Durkheim, Vilfredo Pareto, and Thorstein Veblen.
