Overview

This collection of the writings of Louis Schneider, an exceptionally gifted sociologist of religion the history of ideas, provides a sensitive but rigorous view of the place of ideas in social life. Di­vided according to the principal areas in which Schneider con­ducted research—history of social thought, principles of social the­ory, sociology of religion—are es­says on evolution, styles of re­search, and moral choice in human relations. His knowledge of systems of thought—dialec­tical, functional, and phenomenological—was peerless. The unifying theme in his work is the place of cultural formations in so­cial structures; as a result, his writings are alive with persons no less than systems.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This is a collection of essays written by the late Louis Schneider over the years on a variety of subjects, lovingly assembled by Jay Weinstein and equally lovingly introduced in an epistolary foreword by Robert Merton. It is divided into four parts, each of them given catchy titles by the editor. . . . [It] is an excellent contribution to the sociology of social science. . . . In every way Schneider’s work is an example of how a stimulating teacher with a rigorous and erudite mind can charm his students and contribute to the growth of a complex field of inquiry. . . . Students of functional theory and the sociology of religion as well as those interested in the sociology of the science of sociology will find the book of absorbing interest.” —R. S.
