Would "sociologie is geen filosofie" be correct as well?

The sentence is pointing out that "sociology IS NOT philosophy," while "sociologie is geen filosofie," is putting more emphasis on the fact that "sociology is not A philosophy." Hopefully that clears things up a little.

That clears up everything. Thank you very much!

Still it is incorrect.

Sociologie is geen filosofie Sociologie is niet hetzelfde als filosofie. Sociologie en filosofie zijn twee verschillende.

Sociologie is niet filosofie zal een Nederlander nooit zeggen.

Yes, actually that is the correct translation. Well done.

The correct translation would be "Sociologie is GEEN filosofie".

And I see this wrong translation is kept in place for six years. OMG!
