He was an indefatigable and eclectic writer who founded or co-founded a number of now separate academic disciplines, including the modern study of sociology, public administration and organizational theory.

She is remembered today primarily for the testimony she left concerning the life and death of her brother-in-law.When Mozart moved to Vienna in 1781, and lodged for a time with the Weber family, he seems to have flirted with both Sophie and Constanze (whom he eventually courted and married). The incomplete Allegro in B flat K. 400, written by Mozart at this time, contains (in W. Dean Sutcliffe's words) "a self-contained melodic episode in G minor, with the names of Sophie and Co[n]stanze Weber inscribed above a pair of prolonged sigh figures." In a letter of 15 December, 1781, Mozart described Sophie as "good-natured but feather-brained." In 1782, when Mozart and Constanze were married, she was the only Weber sister who was present at the ceremony.[2
