About me

I have worked as a social scientist for over 40 years, initially in the sociology of education later primarily in the field of research methodology. 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. At present, what is available here is quite limited, but I hope to add to it later. See Documents page.
