Factors That Led to the Development of Sociology?

Answer

Sociology is the study of human society, especially in regard to the development and function of social structures. This broad area of study allows for many concentrations; some sociologists study human social interaction, while others prefer to conduct research regarding prevalent social problems. Technological innovations such as increased mobility were among the factors that lead to the development of sociology in the early 1800s, as people attempted to understand their place in the world upon exposure to cultures different than their own.
