Essays in Sociology and Social Philosophy - Vol. 2

Excerpt

The essays here collected fall into three groups. The first gives an account of the principal problems and methods of sociology and an analysis of the work of some outstanding sociological thinkers. The second is devoted to a study of national character and the causes of antagonism between nations. The third deals with a group of problems on the borderline between sociology and social philosophy, such as the factors making for unity in the history of mankind, the possibility of a rational ethic and of progress in morals, the ethical basis of law and the moral aspects of the relations between states. The central theme of the book is the part played by reason and unreason in human affairs.

I wish to thank the editors of the Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society, the British Journal of Psychology, Economica, Politica and the Sociological Review, Messrs. Chapman & Hall, Messrs. Kegan Paul & Company, the Oxford University Press, and the University of Glasgow for leave to reprint.

M. G.
