The influence of Robert K. Merton on modern sociology has been huge. Widely identified to be the founder of the sociology of science, he has exerted his interest over a vast area, from theoretical sociological problems to contemporary social problems. This collection of essays reflects his breadth of interest and the close connections between theoretical issues and empirical evidence which is a particular concern of Robert Merton's work. Its themes range from his famous essay on the self-fulfilling prophecy to the unanticipated consequences of purposive social action, with important contributions on structural analysis in sociology and a previously unreprinted article on anomie. A particular feature of the book is a section of reminiscences from Talcott Parsons, Paul F. Lazarsfeld, George Sarton, Alvin W. Gouldner, Louis Schneider and Florian Znaniecki.
