Symmetry, forced asymmetry, direct apprehension, and elective modernism

Article English OPEN
Collins, Harold Maurice (2014)

Crazily, Christopher Norris seems to think sociology is at war with philosophy; it is not. I respond to his hostile comments on the sociology of scientific knowledge, which was inspired by Wittgenstein, by explaining the need for symmetry in the explanation of scientific knowledge, methodological relativism, elective modernism and a number of other issues.
