Book review

Excerpt from The Philosophy of Progress in Human Affairs

Sociology, or Social Science, was necessarily a late growth of the human mind, and could not exist until the various sciences that branch into it had received a considerable development. Its object is to trace the laws that regulate the varied and complex phenomena of social life, which it seeks to elucidate by the method of observation and experiment, and especially of deduction from principles that the human mind when applied to these subjects is led to recognize as true.

The idea of law, method, order, or unchanging continuity of Divine will, has entered more or less into the philosophy of all times. Without it, sociology could not have arisen within the horizon of human thought, and in that science this idea receives its idea pervading and comprehensive form.
