阿尔比恩·W·小(Albion W. Small)名言

Modern sociology is virtually an attempt to take up the larger program of social analysis and interpretation which was implicit in Adam Smith's moral philosophy, but which was suppressed for a century by prevailing interest in the technique of the production of wealth.

现代社会学实际上是一种尝试,它试图承担亚当斯密道德哲学中隐含的更大的社会分析和解释程序,但由于对财富生产技术的普遍兴趣,这一程序被压制了一个世纪。

阿尔比恩·W·小

The quarrel of the sociologists with the historians is that the latter have learned so much about how to do it that they have forgotten what to do. They have become so skilled in finding facts that they have no use for the truths that would make the facts worth finding.

社会学家和历史学家之间的争论是,后者对如何做这件事了解太多,以至于忘记了该做什么。他们已经变得如此善于发现事实,以至于他们对那些使事实值得发现的真理毫无用处。
