The sad passing of Geertz brings to my mind a host of theorists whom I
have not had occasion to think about recently, the complementarity of
whose work might be fruitfully considered.

One is Aaron Cicourel, well-known I'm sure to folks in San Diego. (Don
Cunningham, Jay Lemke, and I remember a course he gave in Bloomington in
Summer 1985.)

Another is Harold Garfinkel, whose book on Sociology of Information will
be published next month for the first time:
