    Book synopsis: This volume is a unique contribution to the philosophy of the social sciences, presenting the results of cutting-edge philosophers' research alongside critical discussions by practicing social scientists. The book is motivated by the view that the philosophy of the social sciences cannot ignore the specific scientific practices according to which social scientific work is being conducted, and that it will be valuable only if it evolves in constant interaction with theoretical developments in the social sciences. With its unique format guaranteeing a genuine discussion between philosophers and social scientists, this thought-provoking volume extends the frontiers of the field. It will appeal to all scholars and students interested in the interplay between philosophy and the social sciences. Shows that the philosophy of the social sciences must take account of practices and theories in the social sciences through a unique dialogue between philosophers and social scientists An extremely high-calibre group of philosophers and social scientists, all of whom are prominent figures in their respective fields Addresses a broad audience in a number of fields including philosophers, political scientists, sociologists, psychologists, historians, economists, anthropologists, scholars in literary studies and cognitive scientists interested in philosophical and general methodological issues
