The author has been widely identified as the founder of the sociology of science. This new collection of essays reflects his breadth of interest and the close connections between theoretical issues and empirical evidence which is a particular concern of his work. Its themes range from the self-fulfilling prophecy to the unanticipated consequences of purposive social action. There are contributions on structural analysis in sociology and a previously unreprinted article on anomie is also included. A feature of the book is a section of reminiscences of Talcott parsons, Paul F. Lazarsfeld, George Sarton, Alvin W. Gouldner, Louis Schneider and Florian Znaniecki.
