"Why write about a sociological theorist who, to say the least, has not cast a very wide shadow on contemporary sociology? The answer, I must confess, is my sense of injustice over how Spencer has been treated. There are so many misconceptions about Spencer that someone needs to set the record straight. Moreover, Spencer's ideas are still useful and relevant. And as I will try to demonstrate, our ignorance of what Spencer really said has hurt the cumulation of sociological knowledge.
