Sociology focus for ‘Thinking Allowed’

laurie_taylor.jpgBBC Radio 4 programme Thinking Allowed seems to have changed its focus and now concentrates on sociology.

Previously, it billed itself as “weekly discussion on topical issues of academic concern” but now seems to be advertised as discussing the “latest social science research”.

In this series it has covered topics ranging from the social influence of the pharmaceutical industry to the role of sociology in public life.

The BBC’s biography for the presenter, Laurie Taylor, also makes interesting reading. As well as being a Professor of Sociology, Taylor has previously been a teacher, actor and librarian.
