Title:
Explorations in Field Theory
Authors:
Yinger, J. Milton
Abstract:
The article describes the author's current research works on sociology. The first research concerns the effects of strategic intervention on the educational lives of children from deprived backgrounds. The second research is concerned with the sociology of religion while the last one is concerned mainly with the topic of pluralism. These are basic questions for all modem societies, since none of them is homogeneous in race, religion, language, national origin, and other symbols of group identification. The author's interest in pluralism runs alongside his interest in the study of racial and cultural minorities. The pluralistic ideology affirms strongly that one can have pluralism without having a minority and majority situation. Empirical demonstration is lacking, however. This is not to say that pluralism, therefore, is too costly, for alternative social arrangements may carry even greater disadvantages than those entailed in minority majority arrangements. Before one can arrive at sound judgments regarding such important value questions, one needs much fuller information on the causes and consequences of pluralism under various conditions.
