This paper examines the fields of scientific sociology and the broader field of developmental studies, examining both similarities and differences in the two fields. The paper explains that while the worlds of scientific sociological investigation and developmental studies are indeed closely related, the field of scientific sociology has yet to overcome a great deal of its "snobbery," before it can work effectively with the newer and broader field of developmental study.

From the Paper:

"The Scientific Sociologist, Psychologists and other professionals in attendance at these various meetings received their "wake-up," calls where this issue was concerned. However, not all agreed that the events of the past quarter-century confirm Mead's precocious reasoning that academic scholars and professional societies have unwisely abdicated public education and cultural leadership to others. Putting it somewhat less politely, academic research relevant to the general public is a challenge that cannot be put off any longer."
