On Social Structure and Science by Robert K. Merton

Book Description

Robert K. Merton is unarguably one of the most influential sociologists of his time. A figure whose wide-ranging theoretical and methodological contributions have become fundamental to the field, Merton is best known for introducing such concepts and procedures as unanticipated consequences, self-fulfilling prophecies, focused group interviews, middle-range theory, opportunity structure, and analytic paradigms. This definitive compilation encompasses the breadth and brilliance of his works, from the earliest to the most recent. Merton's foundational writings on social structure and process, on the sociology of science and knowledge, and on the discipline and trajectory of sociology itself are all powerfully represented, as are his autobiographical insights in a fascinating coda. Anchored by Piotr Sztompka's contextualizing introduction, Merton's vast oeuvre emerges as a dynamic and profoundly coherent system of thought, a constant source of vitality and renewal for present and future sociology.

Books By Author Robert K. Merton

Travels and Adventures of Serendipity by Robert K. Merton Travels and Adventures of Serendipity, Paperback (January 2006)

From the names of cruise lines and bookstores to an Australian ranch and a nudist camp outside of Atlanta, the word serendipity - that happy blend of wisdom and luck by which something is discovered not quite by accident - is ubiquitous. This book traces the word's eventful history from its 1754 coinage into the twentieth century.

Focused Interview by Robert K. Merton Focused Interview, Paperback (May 1990)

Reissue of a seminal 1956 work which outlined techniques aimed at eliciting the specific responses of individuals and groups to particular events and situations. A new introduction traces the diffusion of Merton's technique from sociology to other fields, including psychology, and market research.

Becoming an Ex by Robert K. Merton Becoming an Ex, Paperback (June 1988)

Exploring a wide range of role changes, Ebaugh focuses on voluntary exits from significant roles and the common stages--from disillusionment with a particular identity to search for alternative roles to turning points and finally to the creation of an identity as an ex.
