Britain is one of the hometowns of sociology. From the background of the times, it is the birthplace of the modern bourgeois revolution and the industrial revolution; from the perspective of scientific development, it is the birthplace of Newton’s classical mechanics and Darwin’s theory of evolution; from the perspective of philosophical thinking, it has a long-term philosophical tradition of empiricism. There have been a group of famous modern empiricist philosophers such as F. Bacon, T. Hobbes, Hj Locke, D. Hume, J.S. Mill. Modern positivism evolved from empiricism. This is also one of the reasons why British sociology is not exactly the same as the sociology of the European continent such as France and Germany, which has a strong tradition of theoretical philosophy.
