The disciplines of sociology and anthropology as we know them today came into being during an exceptionally generative period between about 1870 and 1930. During this seminal time, theoretical constructs regarding the nature of the mind/self, social interaction and organization, power dynamics and inequalities, and cultural forms and functions were developed. Consequently, key ideas and insights from this earlier period continue to inform anthropological and sociological research and writing in the 21st century.
