Abstract

This paper explores parallel developments in labeling theory and in the value-conflict approach to social problems. Similarities in their critiques of functionalism and etiological theory as well as their emphasis on the definitional process are noted. In addition, the failure of both formulations to develop the distinctiveness of their common insight is examined. An analysis of this failure is presented.
