ABSTRACT
This article is the author's response to sociologist Egon Mayer's criticism of the his article "Opinion," published in the November 1973 issue of the periodical "The American Sociologist." The author says that the stated source of the critique of his article is a survey of New York City-based Brooklyn College students who took some course or courses in sociology last Fall. But by contrast, the author's conclusion was confined to the particular type of student who comes to the university not only to learn a skill but to find his social identity.
