The Philosophy of Social Science Reader is an outstanding, comprehensive and up-to-date collection of key readings in the philosophy of social science, covering the essential issues, problems and debates in this important interdisciplinary area.

Each section is carefully introduced by the editors, and the readings placed in context. The anthology is organized into seven clear parts:

  • Values and Social Science
  • Causal Inference and Explanation
  • Interpretation
  • Rationality and Choice
  • Individualism
  • Norms
  • Cultural Evolution.

Featuring the work of influential philosophers and social scientists such as Ernest Nagel, Ian Hacking, John Searle, Clifford Geertz, Daniel Kahneman, Steven Lukes and Richard Dawkins, The Philosophy of Social Science Reader is the ideal text for philosophy of social science courses, and for students in related disciplines interested in the differences between the social and natural sciences.

Review:

'This is a terrific anthology. It covers a broad range of interesting topics with a nice blend of classical articles and recent work and of traditional philosophy of social science topics such as methodological individualism along with newer areas of interest such as cultural evolution. It is very well suited for use in the classroom as well as for social scientists and philosophers looking for a survey of the current state of play in the field.' – Harold Kincaid, University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA

'The Philosophy of Social Science Reader, edited by Daniel Steel and Francesco Guala, is a welcome, well-organized, and brilliant collection, offering a novel look into a field that has changed enormously in the last 20 years.' María Jiménez Buedo, UNED, Spain in THEORIA
