Professor Anthony L. Haynor

Anthony L. Haynor, Ph.D. is Associate Professor of Sociology Anthropology and Social Work at Seton Hall University and author of Social Practice: Philosophy and Method (Kendall/Hunt, 2003).
A continuing interest of Anthony’s is how sociology as a distinct form of consciousness has evolved, from the beginning of the field up to the present. He has studied the efforts of sociologists to (1) arrive at a general understanding of basic social processes such as cooperation, competition, and exchange), (2) understand our particular period of human history (modernity, postmodernity) as well as the quest for meaning undertaken by those who exist under these conditions, and (3) anticipate future developments.
He is also very interested in how sociology can contribute in a meaningful way to human betterment, and in this connection has developed a methodology for social problem-solving. He has explored the question: How can sociology inform our quest for a viable social order? The integration of sociology and ethics has been and continues to be central to his work. A long-term project is the development of a new curriculum capable of synthesizing the various domains of knowledge. This project involves the integration of the human sciences in the service of human flourishing.
Anthony earned his B.A. (Magna Cum Laude) in Sociology at Brooklyn College, C.U.N.Y. in 1973. He earned his M.A. in Sociology at Rutgers University in 1977. He earned his M.Phil. in Sociology at Rutgers University in 1978. He earned his Ph.D. in Sociology at Rutgers University in 1983.
