Using the Credo Reference database, http://www.credoreference.com/home.do "Metatheorizing as a means of theory development studies existing sociological theory with the intention of developing new or revised theories. Ritzer points out that most of the metatheory in sociology fits this type as much of the classical theories in sociology were formulated using combinations of existing work and writing to contradict or respond to established perspectives." Our database page: http://library.tctc.edu/databases shows the various electronic resources. Credo, which is a reference database, is listed on the right tool bar about 1/2 down. Very good for these type of questions. There were a number of pages that had the definition.
Remember if you are not physically on campus, you will have to supply your student ID number to gain access.
