On Intellectual Craftsmanship

by C. Wright Mills

Fair Use

Mills wrote an Appendix in The Sociological Imagination, calling it "On Intellectual Craftsmanship." In this essay he kind of talks out loud about how he does things, offering advice to new and old sociologists, alike. He offers advice which corresponds to his own stance vis-a-vis "mainstream" sociological theory and methods...advice which I think is still sound today...some 40 years later. I have scanned the pages of this Appendix and present them here for consideration...under the Doctrine of Fair Use, as explained when you click on the "Fair Use" link above. It's presented here in 17 jpg images...with all but the first and last containing two pages each.
