What do you understand by Synthetic School ?

Dear student,

Please find the answer to your query:

The following points will be helpful to you while framing your answer:
  • The synthetic school of thought wants to make sociology synthesis of the social science.
  • It wants to make sociology a general science and not a pure or special social science.
  • This school of thought defer from the formalistic school of thought. 
  • Durkhiem, Ginsberg, Hobhouse and Sarokin have been the chief exponents of this school.
  • The main arguments of this school life are intimately interrelated
  • Hence, the study of one aspect is not sufficient to understand the entire phenomena.
  • So, sociology should study social life as a whole. 
Hope these points will be helpful to you and if you have more doubts then please get back to us on our forum.
