About the Author:

Ian Jarvie is the current editor of the Sage journal Philosophy of Social Science and was for a long time Karl Popper’s assistant at the LSE. He is now one of the leading philosophers of science as well as a philosopher of social science.

Review:

Over four parts (37 chapters), the reader is promised coverage of the development and history of social sciences, as well as paradigms, assessment and use of social theories...Throughout, there are references to key thinkers and theories which provide a helpful refresher on social science history. In addition, the section summaries are clear and the notes and reference sections at the end of each chapter are useful...Not recommended for the casual browser, but a valuable reference book for anyone studying the history or philosophy of social sciences.

The Handbook covers an impressively wide range of issues... the Handbook’s many virtues: its aim is ambitious, and it should serve its purpose extremely well. Author: Johanna Thoma Source: Theoria
