Sociology to Famology: A Wise Move?
David, Elaine
Journal of Family Issues, v14 n1 p20-34 Mar 1993
Notes that proponents of famology stress unique qualities of family as exemplified in certain differentiating characteristics of the family realm. Contends that examination of these characteristics in light of recent research suggests they disregard negative aspects of family life, present stereotypical roles for males and females, and minimize significant aspects of interface between families and other social institutions.
