About me

I have worked as a social scientist for more than 50 years, initially in the sociology of education later primarily in the field of research methodology, in the broadest sense of that term. Throughout, I have had an interest in the nature of social science and its function in the contemporary world. The primary purpose of this website is to provide access to my work for those who are interested in the topics I have written about. Some of these are indicated by the titles of my books:
