This paper makes a comprehensive analysis of the recovery, reconstruction and development of Sichuan sociology in the past 40 years. This paper makes a simple analysis of the development stages of Sichuan sociology, and holds that there are two major stages, namely, the restoration and reconstruction stage and the academic research stage. This paper makes an in-depth investigation of the characteristics and achievements of the academic practice of Sociology in Sichuan in the past 40 years, especially in the study of religious and ethnic issues. At the same time, we also realize that there are shortcomings in discipline construction, research team, research field, etc., and there is still a big gap with the eastern region and foreign sociology research. This requires Sichuan sociology to form a joint research force, maintain its advantageous research field, broaden its research horizon and actively build a high-level research team, so as to better promote the development of Sichuan sociology.
