Spaulding's definition is too broad. "Sociology of the workplace" or "sociology of work" subsumes those other venues, the office, and the store. To those we need to add "the practice" i.e., the workplace of the professional (doctor, lawyer, perhaps even clergy). Moreover, it seems curious to leave out the classroom and the school.

Granted than in the industrial age, the factory metaphor defined other activities - office, school - but those antedate the industrial age. In the Middle Ages, the word "factory" referred specifically to businesses that bought and sold wholesale. The sociology of work must recognize that even today those older forms linger.
