Philosophy of the Social Sciences by Patrick Baert

Book Description

In this ground-breaking new text, Patrick Baert analyzes the central perspectives in the philosophy of social science, critically investigating the work of Durkheim, Weber, Popper, critical realism, critical theory, and Rorty's neo pragmatism. This book places key writers in their social and political contexts, helping to make their ideas meaningful to students. It shows how these authors' views have practical uses in empirical research. It presents a lively approach that makes complex ideas understandable to upper-level students, as well as having scholarly appeal.

Existentialist Moment: The Rise of Sartre as a Public Intellectual by Patrick Baert Existentialist Moment: The Rise of Sartre as a Public Intellectual, Hardback (July 2015)

Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2015 Jean-Paul Sartre is often seen as the quintessential public intellectual, but this was not always the case. Until the mid-1940s he was not so well-known, even in France. Then suddenly, in a very short period of time, Sartre became an intellectual celebrity.

Examining an intramural conflict that erupted within the English Faculty at Cambridge University in the early 1980s, this book develops a theoretical analysis of disputes as they unfold within the academy and explores the broader historical shifts within Higher Education and how these related to developments in Continental Europe.
