Sociology of knowledge is an attempt to salvage the discredited Marxian ideology doctrine which Karl Mannheim and Max Scheler inaugurated in the 1920's. As Mannheim admits that there exist "unattached intellectuals" who are fit to grasp truth free from "ideological" distortions, the whole discussion leads into an impasse.[1]
