Overview

The theme of this collection of articles by Jonathan Turner is that sociology can be a true science, and it can develop abstract laws explaining the operative dynamics of the social universe. Rather that blindly worshipping sociology's masters, however, Turner attempts to reinvent sociology as a science that learns the valuable lessons of classical theory and then moves on.

Jonathan H. Turner, University of California, Riverside

Jonathan Turner is Distinguished Professor of Sociology at UC, Riverside. He has authored dozen of articles and over thirty books, including THE STRUCTURE OF SOCIOLOGICAL THEORY, a companion volume to this book.
