The subject of this book is limited to the abstract form or alogica of science, as applied particularly to scientific sociology. But the discussion presented here goes beyond abstraction and serves a practical role in the sociology and history of science by providing a framework for reducing the enormous variety of scientific researchesaboth within a given field and across all fieldsato a limited number of interrelated formal elements. Such a framework may prove useful in assessing empirical relationships between the formal aspects of scientific work and its substantive social, economic, political, and historical aspects. This is a work of synthesis that merits close attention. It provides an area for viewing theory as something more than a review of the history of any single social science discipline.

-What this mini-book does is put it all together in a brief, but lucid, statement of what the beginning graduate student should know about the state of the art of scientific sociology. . . . [T]his is a worthwhile essay for purposes of review and clarification of the elements of the scientific method for practicing sociologists, and a very valuable guide and overview for graduate students.-

--Betty J. Maynard, Social Forces

-In this extremely compact book, Walter Wallace lays out the ingredients of the scientific enterprise. . . . Though abstract, the book is exceptionally clear. . . [and] an ideal theoretical-methological primer. . . in both theory and research methods.-

--Neil J. Smelser, The American Political Science Association

-I found it a very stimulating book. . . . [I]t is definitely a useful work for the professional's bookshelf.-

--Richard L. Henshel, Contemporary Sociology

-It is the best teaching book I have seen for communicating the accomplishments of social science epistemology.-
