This chapter analyses trends in the development of sociology as a discipline in the five Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, with a focus on the period from 1980 to 2010. Our aim is to provide readers with an introduction and overview of Nordic sociology. The analysis uses a descriptive scheme of phases of sociology. We begin by briefly outlining these phases. This scheme is a background that covers general trends in sociology in the Nordic countries.
