Paper reissue of the 1972 edition. Crane argues that the social institution responsible for the growth of scientific knowledge is the small group of highly productive scientists who, sharing the same field of study, set priorities for research, recruit and train students, communicate with one another, and thus monitor the rapidly changing structure of knowledge in their field. First published (hardcover) in 1988. Nadel exposes some of the ways Ellison situates Invisible man in regard to the American literary tradition, comments on that tradition, and, in doing so, alters it. Annotation c.
