Philosophical Foundations of the Social Sciences: Analyzing Controversies in Social Research

English | 1995 | ISBN: 0521558913 | 304 Pages | PDF | 36.2 MB

This book defends the prospects for a science of society. It argues that behind the diverse methods of the natural sciences lies a common core of scientific rationality that the social sciences can and sometimes do achieve. It also argues that good social science must be in part about large-scale social structures and processes and thus that methodological individualism is misguided. These theses are supported by a detailed discussion of actual social research, including theories of agrarian revolution, organizational ecology, social theories of depression, and supply-demand explanations in economics.
