The paper addressed some of the major and frequent criticisms levelled against sociology as a discipline. It argues that many of the so-called shortcomings of sociology – lack of theoretical unity, spurious correlation, etc, were either overstated or wrong because they ignored developments in the discipline and the natural sciences as well. The paper concludes that because of the proliferations of organizations in the modern society of the 21st century, the focus or domain of sociology should be the interrogation of how the organisations in a society interrelate and the consequences of their interrelationship for the life of man in society. The result of this interrogation and its policy implications would continue to assure the relevance and future of the discipline.
