Excerpt from The Study of Sociology

It is desirable that the present volume, the origin of which is explained in the author's preface, should be accompanied by a brief statement in relation to Mr. Spencer's other works upon sociological science. The "Principles of Sociology" was projected by Mr. Spencer as a part of his philosophical system, the publication of which was commenced in 1860. Five volumes of that system have appeared, viz.: "First Principles," in one volume; the "Principles of Biology," in two volumes; and the "Principles of Psychology," in two volumes. "First Principles" develops the general method of the philosophy to be carried out in the subsequent works. In the two succeeding parts that method is applied to the interpretation of the phenomena of Life and Mind, the whole course of exposition being preparatory to the "Principles of Sociology," in three volumes, which are next in order. Upon this work Mr. Spencer has now entered, and it will be published in quarterly parts, by subscription, in the same form that was adopted with the previous divisions of the work.

Several years since Mr. Spencer foresaw a difficulty that would arise in working out the principles of social science from a lack of the data or facts necessary as a basis of reasoning upon the subject; and he saw that, before the philosophy could be elaborated, these facts must be systematically and exhaustively collected.

About the Author:

Herbert Spencer (1820-1903) was an English philosopher, political theorist, sociological theorist, author, and editor. He served in the later capacity for the "Economist" from 1843 to 1853. He is perhaps best known for applying evolutionary theory to social development and coined the term "survival of the fittest." His best known works are "Man versus the State" and the multi-volume "System of Synthetic Philosophy".
