Sociology has long claimed to be an objective, value free science (Hinkle and Hinkle, 1954; Bates, 1967i Caplow, 1971). The research process is expected to be unaffected by the personal values, hopes,and prejudices of the researcher. Superficially, such claims can simply refer to professional ethics in gathering, analyzing, and presenting data. Violations at this level, albeit unintentional, are usually sufficiently manifest to be detected in professional review and replication attempts.
