For more than three decades Philosophy of the Social Sciences has served as the international, interdisciplinary forum for current research, theory and debate on the philosophical foundations of the social sciences.

Key Issues
Philosophy of the Social Sciences focuses on the central issues of the social sciences, including general methodology (explaining, theorizing, testing), the application of philosophy (especially individualism versus holism), the nature of rationality, and the history of theories and concepts. Among the topics you'll explore are:

  • Ethnomethodology
  • Evolution
  • Marxism
  • Phenomenology
  • Postmodernism
  • Rationality
  • Relativism
  • Scientific Methods
  • Textual Interpretations
Philosophy of the Social Sciences' open editorial policy ensures that you'll enjoy rigorous scholarship on topics viewed from many different - and often conflicting - schools of thought. No school, party or style of philosophy of the social sciences is favored. Debate between schools is encouraged. Each issue presents submissions by distinguished scholars from a variety of fields including: anthropology, communications, economics, history, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, sociology
Each issue brings you in-depth discussions, symposia, literature surveys, translations, and review symposia of interest both to philosophers concerned with the social sciences and to social scientists concerned with the philosophical foundations of their subjects.
