The Fallacies of Social Science

A Critique of the Natural Science Model of Social Analysis


Jon Huer

The Fallacies of Social Science questions whether the «natural science model» is suitable, or even possible, at all for social science. It begins its task by differentiating the organism from society as two analytically exclusive categories. By critically looking at the assumptions and methods of this natural science model, such as use of statistics and scientific language, the book first points out the inherent fallacies of the one-dimensional model of analysis and then offers a «three-dimensional» social science as an alternative.
