Editorial Reviews


"...Kincaid convincingly argues that both the natural sciences and the social sciences have a common core of scientific rationality based on naturalism and holism....This work is highly recommended to philosophers of science, social scientists, and graduate students in philosophy or in any of the social sciences." Choice

"...well argued and necessary in arguing in many cases what should have been obvious for at least a century, but is still a minority view in contemporary discourse." Aviezer Tucker, Dialogue

Book Description

This text defends the prospects for a science of society. Its theses are supported by a detailed discussion of actual social research, including theories of agrarian revolution, organizational ecology, social theories of depression, and supply-demand explanations in economics.
