Professor of Philosophy at Duke University Alexander Rosenberg brings us the third edition of "The Philosophy of Social Science", a throughly argued yet still accessible introduction to the philosophical foundations of human sciences such as economics, anthropology, sociology, and many others. New to this edition include an overview of the eclipse of behaviorism in psychology and the rise of game theory in economics, consideration of problems for functionalism in social science that must be addressed by an appeal to biology and especially Darwinism thinking; and so much more on top of that. "The Philosophy of Social Science" is highly recommended to college philosophy shelves as a complete reference and to non-specialized general readers with an interest in psychology.
