This text offers a comprehensive introduction to philosophical problems in the social sciences, encompassing traditional and contemporary perspectives. Its emphasis is on communicating difficult philosophical ideas clearly for students outside the discipline. The authors argue that there are no final answers to questions raised, only better questions, and that the different positions in the philosophy of social science provide a way of organizing theoretical debates across the social sciences.
