What is Social Science?

  • Max Steuer
Chapter

Abstract

One of my motives for writing this book is the growing presence of people in universities who are antagonistic to science in any form, yet call themselves social scientists. Some are anti-science without realising this. Others champion their hostility to a scientific approach to society. Another motive for writing this book is to break down some of the insularity between social science disciplines. I hope that my view of science is broadly acceptable to this group of supporters of social science, and that seeing what goes on in surrounding disciplines proves of interest.
