Berger's classic introduction to sociology invites students into the field and places the discipline within the humanistic tradition. Even while emphasizing the vital importance of scientific procedures, Berger describes its connections to history and philosophy and its important contributions to a fuller understanding of a human world. Along with an examination of human consciousness and social institution, Invitation to Sociology brings to life the contributions of such classical sociologists as Weber, Durkheim, Veblen, and Mean.Praise for Invitation to Sociology:"There is simply no voice like his, no writing more elegant, no vision more perceptive--of the intricate structure of social life."
--Professor Michael Plekon, Baruch College, City University of New York
