Alvin W. Gouldner
Alvin Ward Gouldner (1920 – 1980) wiki
" In his last decade, A1 devoted himself to two projects: the completion of his trilogy on marxism, and the founding and development of Theory and Society. For Theory and Society he held the most audacious of goals. He wanted, he said, to bring together into a theoretical community social scientists from throughout the world, all of whom he expected to seek one standard: brilliance."
