Reviews

From back cover of Fads and Fallacies:

  • "Among contemporary social scientists, the admirable Steven Goldberg is anomalous: unlike many of his peers, he believes that scholarship is, above all, for getting at the truth. In this compelling new book he demonstrates that there is widespread indifference to truth-seeking in current social science, and argues for the urgency of a return to serious inquiry." Paul Gross, author of Higher Superstition.
  • "No person in American sociology is so well informed concerning the current fads and fashions in ideas among American intellectuals and semi-intellectuals. ... Goldberg has emerged as a leading sociological logician. ... The spirit of the great masters of sociological theory is in him." Lewis Feuer, professor emeritus, University of Virginia, author of Einstein and the Generations of Science.
