Philosophy of Social Science The Methods, Ideals and Politics of Social Inquiry

by Michael Root

Philosophy of Social Science The Methods, Ideals and Politics of Social Inquiry Synopsis

This book is a critical introduction to the philosophy of social science. While most social scientists maintain that the social sciences should stand free of politics, this book argues that they should be politically partisan. Root offers a clear description and provocative criticism of many of the methods and ideals that guide research and teaching in the social sciences.

Philosophy of Social Science The Methods, Ideals and Politics of Social Inquiry Press Reviews

This is a very attractive book. It is exceedingly well written. It is well organised; filled with interesting examples; and is quite comprehensive in scope. It contains any number of illuminating observations. Most importantly, its subject is significant, it keeps this subject in focus throughout, and it proposes its own distinctive approach to it. Brian Fay, Wesleyan University Raises so many fascinating and important questions in the philosophies of the social sciences. Marthe Atwater Chandler, Ethics
