that according to Josef Gunz (1996), Dr Jacob Levy Moreno "demonstrates universal possibilities for a dynamic sociology based on sociometry. Therefore, Moreno can claim not only to be the founder of action research but to be one of the creators of a modern sociology, by continuing the epistemologies of historical forerunners, especially Comte, Durkheim and Marx." I would also add Weber in with the latter.
