Harvey Sacks was a sociologist in the ethnomethodology tradition. He pioneered extremely detailed studies of the way real people actually used language in the real world. Despite his early death in 1975 and the fact that he did not have time to publish widely (his major published books are based on lecture notes) he founded the sub-discipline of conversation analysis and is increasingly influential on, for example, discursive psychology.
