9781412986892: Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences

"This encyclopedia, magnificently edited by Byron Kaldis, will become a valuable source both of reference and inspiration for all those who are interested in the interrelation between philosophy and the many facets of the social sciences. A must read for every student of the humanities." Wulf Gaertner, University of Osnabrueck, Germany

"Like all good works of reference this Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences is not to be treated passively: it provides clear and sometimes controversial material for constructive confrontation. It is a rich resource for critical engagement. The Encyclopedia conceived and edited by Byron Kaldis is a work of impressive scope and I am delighted to have it on my bookshelf."
David Bloor, Edinburgh University

"This splendid and possibly unique work steers a skilful course between narrower conceptions of philosophy and the social sciences. It will be an invaluable resource for students and researchers in either or both fields, and to anyone working on the interrelations between them." 
William Outhwaite, Newcastle University

The Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences is the first of its kind in bringing the subjects of philosophy and the social sciences together. It is not only about the philosophy of the social sciences but, going beyond that, it is also about the relationship between philosophy and the social sciences. 

The subject of the Encyclopedia is purposefully multi- and inter-disciplinary. Knowledge boundaries are both delineated and crossed over. The goal is to convey a clear sense of how philosophy looks at the social sciences and to mark out a detailed picture of how the two are interrelated: interwoven at certain times but also differentiated and contrasted at others. The Entries cover topics of central significance but also those that are both controversial and on the cutting-edge, underlining the unique mark of this Encyclopedia: the interrelationship between philosophy and the social sciences, especially as it is found in fresh ideas and unprecedented hybrid disciplinary areas. 

The Encyclopedia serves a further dual purpose: it contributes to the renewal of the philosophy of the social sciences and helps to promote novel modes of thinking about some of its classic problems.

About the Author:

Byron Kaldis, BA Honours (University of Kent), DPhil (University of Oxford), is Professor of Philosophy and Director of Studies in the School of Humanities at the Hellenic Open University. He has previously held positions at universities in the United Kingdom, United States, and Greece and has recently been a visiting scholar in the departments of philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley and the University of Helsinki. He will be again a visiting scholar at Harvard University and Rutgers University.

He has taught and published in the areas of the philosophy of social sciences, metaphysics and epistemology, history of philosophy and political thought, and the ethics of technoscience. He currently works on the relationship between philosophical issues in cognition and social ontology.

He is the editor of a forthcoming edited volume: Mind and Society: Cognitive Science Meets the Social Sciences, to appear in the Synthese Library of Studies in Epistemology, Logic, Methodology, and Philosophy of Science, and co-editor of another forthcoming edited volume titled: Wealth, Commerce and Philosophy published by The University of Chicago Press.

Byron Kaldis will be editor of a new academic book series in the philosophy of the social sciences and serves as member of the advisory board on the philosophy of sociality book series at Springer. In 2011, he launched together with colleagues the European Network for the Philosophy of the Social Sciences (ENPOSS).

Review:

."..Because of the unique interdisciplinary nature of the work, its scope ranges from the minute to the monumental, with a number of perennial topics...covered in an aggregate of shorter entries from a variety of perspectives....The Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences contains a wealth of information that intellectualizes a new paradigm for our understanding of the relationship between the two subjects. Although directed mainly at an upper-graduate academic audience, this is a remarkable work of scholarship that is a must-have for academic libraries supporting interdisciplinary programs."--Brian Odom (08/01/2013)

"The Encyclopedia underlines interdisciplinary connections between the humanities and the scientific study of the social world, for the first time providing readers coming from different disciplinary backgrounds a vista from which to survey novel aspects of the relationships between the humanities and the social sciences."--SirReadaLot"SirReadaLot" (04/18/2013)

This Encyclopedia, magnificently edited by Byron Kaldis, will become a valuable source both of reference and inspiration for all those who are interested in the interrelation between philosophy and the many facets of the social sciences. A must read for every student of the humanities.--Wulf Gaertner (07/01/2013)

Byron Kaldis' Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences is a triumph. The entries are consistently good, the coverage is amazing, and he has managed to involve the whole scholarly community in this field. It shows off the field very well, and will be a magnificent resource for students and others.--Stephen Turner (07/01/2013)

"This is a 'Back to the Future' volume which undoes the damage that the arts/science divide has done to social science. The carefully crafted entries of the Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences edited by Byron Kaldis reveal the philosophical rigor that any study of the human social world requires. Social scientists who struggle with 'concepts' and 'methods', 'ontologies' and 'epistemologies', will find, at last, a reliable and comprehensive source of enlightenment."--Terrell Carver (08/06/2013)

"This is a first rate resource for philosophers, social scientists, and science scholars. Thorough in its topics, with articles written by prominent scholars in engaging and accessible terms, it should be a must for those interested in the history and philosophy of social science, and the social sciences."--Lynn Hankinson Nelson (08/01/2013)

."..Although book-length treatments and collections of essays on this subject are available, this is the first encyclopedic work on this subject. The entries are clearly written, informative, and instructive. In most cases they explain the significance of a particular philosophy term to the social sciences, a feature that distinguishes this work from a general encyclopedia of philosophy....Summing Up: Recommended."--M.Meola"CHOICE" (10/01/2013)

The Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences edited by Byron Kaldis covers an enormous range of topics in philosophy and the social sciences and the entries are compact overviews of the essential issues.--Harold Kincaid (07/01/2013)

The Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences edited by Byron Kaldis, provides a unique, needed, and invaluable resource for researchers at every level. Unique because nothing else offers the breadth of coverage found in this work; needed because it permits researchers to find longer but also relatively brief, clear, but nonetheless expert articles introducing important topics; and invaluable because of the guidance offered to both related topics and further study. It should be the place that any interested person looks first when seeking to learn about philosophy and the social sciences.
