Many available books say that a particular approach, framework, philosophy, or method is the key to a rosy future for the social sciences, psychology, or cultural studies. However, they make these claims separately and in technical and specialized ways. This book addresses all of these aspects at once in a lively and generalist way. Unusual about it is its seamless flow across a large range of fields and issues. Rare about it is the emotional tension it builds and sustains. Unique about it is that, while grounding and orienting the human sciences, it addresses the largest questions of philosophy. Brimming with fresh insight,
An Inquiry into the Philosophical Foundations of the Human Sciences is an ambitious, bold, deeply thought, and powerfully felt work with a tone as distinct as its ideas.
