An Examination of the Philosophies of Sociology of Paul Furfey and George Lundberg
Inhoff, Robert Bernard
MetadataShow full item record
I have chosen to examine the philosophies of sociology of a Catholic sociologist and a neo-positivist, in hope that the dialogue created by two so distinct posit1ons will bring into focus the main problems involved. In the next chapter I will consider the philosophy of sociology of Paul Hanley Furfey, examining his definition of science, the need for value judgments in sociology, and the nature of certain metaphysical systems which d1fferent sociologists have used. Then I will examine George Lundberg's philosophy of sociology, and will follow that with a discussion of the differences between these two viewpoints. A f1nal chapter will contain my effort to answer the questions which I have posed.
