Sociology as a Vocation.
Lechner, Frank J.
American Sociologist, v21 n1 p41-47 Spr 1990
Examines the meaning of practicing sociology, claiming to "commit a social science" still makes sense. Accepts Max Weber's arguments that sociology clarifies human affairs and is oriented to certain virtues. Suggests, however, that sociology is a passion as well as a profession, something Weber recognized but did not elaborate. (NL)
