Summary This is a translated edition of five of the nine papers and the responses presented at the first conference of the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Soziologie (DGS) that was held in 1910. These are seminal contributions by some of the founders of classical German sociology and social theory, including Max Weber, Georg Simmel, Ferdinand Tonnies, Ernst Troeltsch and Werner Sombart. A substantial introduction discusses the lives and works of the five thinkers, placing them in the context of Germany in the early twentieth century and discussing their personal and societal connections.
Contents Sociology of society / Georg Simmel -- Ways and goals of sociology / Ferdinand Tonnies -- Business report followed by the comparative sociology of newspapers and associations / Max Weber -- Technology and culture / Werner Sombart -- Stoic-Christian natural law and modern profane natural law / Ernst Troeltsch.
