9780262132961: Readings in the Philosophy of Social Science

This is the first comprehensive anthology in the philosophy of social science to appear since the late 1960s. Covering all of the major areas in the discipline, it will serve as the standard source for scholarship in the field and could be used as the basis for an entire course.

The anthology offers one complete, convenient, and well-chosen selection of readings, plus three specially commissioned articles that encompass the entire range of topics in the field and cover both sides of currently hot debates about explanation, methodological individualism, and the special sciences. The introductions to each section provide a map through the discipline.

Michael Martin is Professor of Philosophy at Boston University. Lee C. McIntyre is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Colgate University.

Sections cover: Explanation, Prediction, and Laws. Interpretation and Meaning. Rationality. Functional Explanation. Reductionism, Individualism, and Holism. Objectivity and Values. Problems of the Special Sciences.

Commissioned articles:

Taylor on Interpretation and the Sciences of Mani Michael Martin. Microfoundations of Marxism, D. Little. Evidential Constraints: Pragmatic Empiricism in Archaeology, A. Wylie.

Review:

These has been no satisfactory anthology in the philosophy of social science available in the last decade and a half. This anthology will solve the problem.

(Alex Rosenberg, University of California)

This book fits an imporant, currently empty, intellectual niche. The papers selected are thematically well-suited, accessible, and of the highest quality.

(Owen Flanagan, Duke University)

This is a substantial and comprehensive collection in the philosophy of social science. It includes many of the classic articles that any course in the philosophy of social science would naturally want to consider, and it offers a rich selection of work published in this field in the last ten years.

(Daniel Little, Colgate University)
