    Abstract

    The article points out the decisive methodological moves of the sociology of knowledge as represented by Karl Mannheim, Robert K. Merton, and Peter Berger/ Thomas Luckmann. Despite a shared orientation towards the investigation of relations between knowledge and society, the three approaches theoretically conceptualise both knowledge, society, and the interrelations between the two in fundamentally different ways. The article demonstrates, how several of the methodological and epistemological problems implied by any talk of social construktivism were already present and - differently - reflected in the three stages of the development of the sociology of knowledge.
