“Clearly, the social scientist should be accurate and objective but not neutral; he [sic] should be passionately partisan in favor of the welfare of the people and against the interests of the few when they seem to submerge that welfare. In a word, the reason for the existence of the social scientist is that his [sic] scientific findings contribute to the betterment of the people’s well-being.”

- Oliver Cromwell Cox, Caste, class, and race: A study in social dynamics (1948)
