This is a volume in a series on leading contemporary sociologists which is devoted to Robert Merton, his work and the influence he has had on contemporary sociological thinking, a set of 21 essays by different contributors on the main themes of his work and a concluding essay written by Merton himself. Merton's essay treats this volume as a case in point to prove what he has always regarded as a basic process in science and scholarship, namely, "organized scepticism". The book's final section contains biographical details of the the contributors, an outline intellectual biography of Merton and a consolidated bibliography. [via]
