    Why sociologists abandoned the sick role concept.John C. Burnham - 2014 - History of the Human Sciences 27 (1):70-87.
    The concept of the sick role entered sociology in 1951 when Talcott Parsons creatively separated the sick person out of the doctor–patient dyad. The idea became fundamental in the subdiscipline of medical sociology. By the 1990s, the concept had almost disappeared from the research literature. Beyond the generational and theoretical changes that explain how the sick role idea could become irrelevant or unnecessary to sociologists, there were two immediate factors: the negative politicization of the concept and the shift of medical (...)

  3. Changing metaphors in History of the Human Sciences.John C. Burnham - 2000 - History of the Human Sciences 13 (4):121-124.

    Accident Proneness : A Classic Case of Simultaneous Discovery/Construction in Psychology.John C. Burnham - 2008 - Science in Context 21 (1):99-118.
    ArgumentUsing a striking example from the history of applied psychology, the concept of accident proneness, this paper suggests that historians of science may still find viable the idea of simultaneous discovery or construction of a scientific idea. Accident proneness was discovered independently in Germany and in Britain during the period of World War I. Later on, in 1926, the idea was independently formulated and named in both countries. The evidence shows not only striking simultaneity but true novelty and commensurateness of (...)
