Project Description

The project will examine a variety of positions in contemporary social and political theory, and the philosophy of social science, pertaining to the nature of explanation in the social sciences and the range and limits of normative endeavours. Issues to be considered will include the pragmatist approach to dialogic knowledge and the critical realist search for ontological definitions to furnish the condition of possibility of scientific explanation.
