Wittgenstein Among the Sciences: Wittgensteinian Investigations Into the "scientific Method"
Discussing the work of Kuhn, Winch and Wittgenstein in relation to fundamental question of methodology, 'Wittgenstein among the Sciences' undertakes an examination of the nature of (natural) science itself, in the light of which a series of successive cases of putatively scientific disciplines are analysed. A novel and significant contribution to social science methodology and the philosophy of science and 'the human sciences', this book is of interest to social scientists and philosophers, as well as to psychiatrists, economists and cognitive scientists.
