Abstract: 

The first aim of the article is to compare the epistemological bases of sociology and social thoughts not being absolutist, in focusing on one aspect and not considering the possibility of bilateral effects, one could recognize four types of distinctions between epistemological bases of sociology and social thoughts, among which the most distinctive one seems to be paradigm differences. The article illustrates this issue by discussing the principle paradigm assumptions of the two types of sociology and social thoughts. The second purpose of the article is to raise and to develop a question about the possibility of the enhancement of sociology. That is, in an era when epistemological paradigms and their distinctions are discovered and known could it be possible to go beyond some framework mythologies and to design the scientific-rational knowledge of the future more creatively and selectionally? Following this proposal seems to require a kind of self-confidence, that is more evident in the sociology homeland, the West. nevertheless, the potentialities and capacities of Muslims knowledge may be more suitable for creating such an innovation and synthesis. This idea is put down briefly at the end of the article in order to open a view for the meta-sociology studies in the future.
