About this Item

INSCRIBED "To Richard, who helped so much during the travail, Robert." Published as Volume IV, part 2 of Osiris: Studies on the History and Philosophy of Science, and on the History of Learning and Culture. The first book by the great sociologist, inaugurating a long and brilliant career. Extending Max Weber's thesis on religious influences on the development of capitalism, Merton here argues that far from being at war with rationality, Puritanism shaped the development of scientific empiricism. Some 75 years after its initial publication, the Merton Thesis is still widely discussed. Light wear to the fragile covers: a very good copy in custom clamshell slipcase.
