Levels of Reflexivity: Unnoted Differences within the "Strong Programme" in the Sociology of Knowledge

Abstract
A basic question confronting programs in the sociology of science is: "Can the thesis that cognitive claims are socially determined be interpreted in a way that preserves the credibility of the sociology of science, when that thesis is reflexively applied to the sociology of science?" That question is approached here by means of a critical comparison of two versions of the " strong programme" in the sociology of knowledge. The key difference is the effort in one of the two versions to develop a context within which to articulate the distinction of science and ideology
