Dowd, James J.
Teaching Sociology, v19 n3 p308-21 Jul 1991
Discusses effects on graduate sociology education of trends emphasizing quantitative methods and the positivist tradition at the expense of social theory and interpretive sociology. Argues that failure to develop sociology's interpretive tradition has allowed the style and intellectual creativity of sociological work to suffer. Urges greater balance between the two traditions of sociology. (DK)
