The sociological eye means looking at things for what they are, as best we can given the blinders of interest and ideology, of cliché and ritualized belief. It is not an individual enterprise.

The sociological eye holds up a periscope above the tides of political and intellectual partisanship, spying out the patterns of social life in every direction.
