On Objective Truth in Sociology

Russian Studies in Philosophy 6 (2):33-38 (1967)
Abstract
"I do not doubt that if the truth that the three angles of a triangle equal two right angles were in conflict with someone's right to power or the interests of those who already hold power, then, to the degree that this would be in the power of those whose interests are affected by this truth, the teaching of geometry would be challenged or driven out by the burning of all books on geometry."
