Linking psychology and sociology

Although it is rarely recognized, sociology is based on psychology (but is not reducible to it). Thus, sociology should not contradict psychology, at least not the best established part of it; and, of course, psychology should not contradict the best established part of sociology. For this to happen, sociology should not ignore individual behaviors and choices, and psychology should not ignore the role of institutions. If mutual ignorance prevails, an inept focus on micro-macro links will also prevail.
