About the Author:

Lee McIntyre is a Research Fellow at the Center for Philosophy and History of Science at Boston University. He is the author of Laws and Explanation in the Social Sciences: Defending a Science of Human Behavior.

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)
