Abstract This article reports the results of a survey item which asked members of ASC to identify the two or three biggest problems facing the discipline of criminology. Recent literature in the discipline is examined to assess the extent to which these problems are actually being addressed. The results of these content analyses are then explored and discussed within the context of historical critiques of theory and the discipline and in relation to the need for a new “meta-theory” in the discipline. Last, Integral Theory is offered as a new model for addressing the problems and for moving the discipline forward.
