This paper discusses four questions regarding sociology. First is the contrast between Gemeinschaft and Gessellschaft. Second, is a definition of anomie and what condition it may develop. Third, is a discussion of how sociology can be seen as developing from a concern about loss of community. And lastly, is a discussion of how social relationships in modern society differ from those of feudal society.

From the Paper:

"German sociologist, Ferdinand Tonnies, introduced Gemeinschaft and Gesellschaft as sociological catergories to describe two normal types of human association. Tonnies discussed these terms in his work entitled Gemeinshaft and Gesselschaft, which was first published in 1887. His second edition, printed in 1912, was a success, and these two terms became well known, although often misunderstood, by German intellectuals, prior to 1933 ("Gemeinshaft", 2004)."
