Sociology of sociology is an area of sociology that combines social theories with analysis of the effect of socio-historical contexts in sociological intellectual production.[citation needed]

For the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, the task of the sociology of sociology is to debrief accepted truths, focusing on the questioning of canons and acting towards new epistemologies.[1]

In his book A History of Sociology in Britain, published 2004, British sociologist Andrew Halsey outlines a sociology of sociology. He suggests a connection between political economic regimes in the 20th century and the development of sociology as an academic discipline.[2]
