  • Our inquiry begins with an observation by historian M.D. King, put forth in 1971 and then widely ignored: The sociologist…must discover the sources of scientific authority and the manner of its exercise…. Science is acclaimed and patronized to the extent that its intellectual authority…is acknowledged. The failure to give due priority to the problem of cognitive authority wielded by scientists has vitiated much of the sociology of science of the last three decades (1).
