The Objects of Social Science

Eleonora Montuschi|Continuum (October 2003)

This book presents a clear and structured analysis of the philosophy of social science across each of its main disciplines: anthropology, sociology, history, economics and geography. Using a range of examples from specific social sciences, the book identifies the practical and theoretical procedures involved in the identification of the object and, at the same time, raises questions about the very objectivity of these procedures in analysing the object. 

'An excellent study, informed by both analytic and Continental approaches, by both philosophical theory and social science practice.' Nancy Cartwright, LSE
