“Paradigms and Fairy Tales: Introduction to the Science of Meanings” Julienne Ford (Sociology)

This two volume example of sociological navel gazing was a set text on my postgrad sociology course in the late 1970’s. One of those books that looks intellectual, but you can read the whole of a page and  be none the wiser. Gives ammunition to the ongoing argument as to whether social science can ever be or satisfy real scientific method. To sum this up I would recommend Pedro Meyer’s 16 line article “How is a paradigm born”, as opposed to the 480 odd pages here.
