Interpretive Social Science by Paul Rabinow

Book Description

This is a new edition of the well-received "Interpretive Social Science" (California, 1979), in which Paul Rabinow and William M. Sullivan predicted the increasing use of an interpretive approach in the social sciences, one that would replace a model based on the natural sciences. In this volume, Rabinow and Sullivan provide a synthetic discussion of the new scholarship in this area and offer twelve essays, eight of them new, embodying the very best work on interpretive approaches to the study of human society.

Books By Author Paul Rabinow

Modes of Uncertainty by Paul Rabinow Modes of Uncertainty, Paperback (July 2015)

Taking up policies and experiences as objects of research and analysis, the essays here seek a rigorous inquiry into a sound conceptualization of uncertainty in order to better confront contemporary problems. This book offers different ways of thinking about danger, risk, and uncertainty from an analytical and anthropological perspective.

Designs on the Contemporary by Paul Rabinow Designs on the Contemporary, Paperback (May 2014)

Deals with the challenge of how to design and put into practice strategies for inquiring into the intersections of philosophy and anthropology. The authors explore the contemporary from past works: how to conceptualize, test, and give form to breakdowns of truth and conduct, and how to open up possibilities for the remediation of such breakdowns.

Demands of the Day by Paul Rabinow Demands of the Day, Paperback (June 2013)

Deals with logical standards and forms that should guide ethical and experimental anthropology in the twenty-first century. This title draws on experiences from a set of anthropological experiments that investigated how and whether the human and biological sciences could be brought into a mutually enriching relationship.

Designing Human Practices by Paul Rabinow Designing Human Practices, Paperback (June 2012)

Provides fresh insights into the possibilities and limitations of collaboration, and diagnoses the micropolitics which effectively constrained the potential for mutual scientific flourishing. This title utilizes a real-world experience as a springboard for timely reflections on how the human and life sciences can and should transform each other.
