Abstract

Suicidology is at a crossroads, the crux of which came into plain view recently when Hjelmeland/Knizek's critique of mainstream suicidology was followed by two ardent essays defending suicidology as it currently exists. We stake out a middle-way approach leveraging sociology's unique disciplinary perspective to bridge the two sides to construct a robust transdisciplinary toolbox that helps suicidology advance as science and improve how we study suicide and, therefore, what we know. The essay first examines the underlying structural and cultural reasons for the talking past each other, before turning towards our own understanding of science, methods, and the study of suicide.
