Donald Black is University Professor of the Social Sciences at the University of Virginia, who previously taught at Yale Law School and Harvard Law School.

Author of the 1976 book The Behavior of Law, which has received very favorable reviews, and The Social Structure of Right and Wrong, which applies sociological concepts first explored in The Behavior of Law to subjects other than law, such as Right and Wrong, Crime as Social Control, Conflict Management, art, ideas (as an empirical distributed phenomenon), and God. For each of these areas, Black explains and predicts variable aspects such as the frequency of each one (how many arrests? how many ideas? how active a God?) as well as topic-specific variables (is the arrest upward or downward? how important is the idea?)

Black's approach is distinctive both for its epistemological approach (pure sociology) and its theoretical model (social geometry).
