Four Sociological Traditions

Bibliography

Prologue

My general approach to the sociology of social science follows that of Joseph Ben-David, The Scientist's Role in Society ( Englewood Cliffs, N.J.: Prentice-Hall, 1971). This was specifically applied to psychology in Joseph Ben-David and Randall Collins, "Social Factors in the Origins of a New Science: The Case of Psychology," American Sociological Review 31 ( 1966): 451-65. More abstract results of a comparison of six social sciences are found in my Conflict Sociology: Toward Explanatory Science chapter 9 ( New York: Academic Press, 1975). An overview of the cyclical rise and decline of the medieval and early modern university system is contained in my "Crises and Declines in Credential Systems," in Sociology Since Mideentury ( New York: Academic Press, 1981). The foregoing contain more detailed historical references for the material in this prologue.


Chapter.1. The Conflict Tradition

Hegel most important work is The Phenomenology of Mind ( New York: Harper, 1963; originally published 1807). The reference. on p. 52 to history as a "slaughterbench" is from his The Philosophy of History on p. 21 ( New York: Dover, 1956; original lectures ca. 1822). Among the best commentaries on Hegel are Walter A. Kaufman, Hegel: A Reinterpretation ( Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, 1965); and Herbert Marcuse, Reason and Revolution ( New York: Humanities Press, 1954; originally published 1941). Engels himself tells the story of the development of Marxism out of the Young Hegelians in Ludwig Feuerbach and the End of Classical German Philosophy ( 1888). [There are numerous editions of the works on Marx and Engels; among the better collections are LewisFeuer
