(p.275) Conclusion Missing What Matters
Philip Selznick
Stanford University Press

In the introduction to this book it was suggested that Selznick was interesting not merely for his particular subjects and what he had to say about them, or his informing discipline(s) and what he contributed to it or them, but for distinctive aspects of his ways of thought, his moral-intellectual character, and sensibility. The book has largely followed his subjects and the order in which he took them up, with matters of the latter sort discussed as they emerged in the writings. This chapter concludes by reviewing the major themes in Selznick's works. Selznick sought to redirect or augment the attentions of sociology to questions of value. He believed that this engagement should draw on an uncommon range, variety, and richness of intellectual resources, from the social sciences, humanities, particularly philosophy and history and, on occasion, from world religions.
