Critical Realism by Justin Cruickshank

Book Description

Critical realism is a movement in philosophy and the human sciences most closely associated with the work of Roy Bhaskar. Since the publication of Bhaskars A Realist Theory of Science, critical realism has had a profound influence on a wide range of subjects. This reader makes accessible, in one volume, key readings to stimulate debate about and within critical realism. It explores the following themes: * transcendental realist * the theory of explanatory critique * dialectics * Bhaskar's critical naturalist philosophy of science.

Realism and Sociology by Justin Cruickshank Realism and Sociology, Paperback (January 2007)

Methodological debates in the social sciences have increasingly focused on issues relating to epistemology. This book charts a ground between postmodernism and positivism.
