Sociology as Science. An Intellectual Autobiography. By Raymond Boudon, translation by Peter Hamilton of R. Boudon,La sociologie comme science, Paris, La Découverte, collection "Repères", 2010, The Bardwell Press, avril 2013

In this entertaining and insightful book, Raymond Boudon, one of France’s most eminent sociologists, draws on his personal history and intellectual career, showing how they relate to his distinctive ideas on the claim that contemporary sociology can operate as a true science. His distinctive contributions on such topics as educational and social inequality, rationality, methodological individualism, and the classical tradition in sociology have been influential. Boudon’s perspective moves beyond narrow, parochial and obscure concerns to the broader issues of how best to explain and understand society.
