The Philosophy of Social Science

Radhakamal Mukerjee (Author) G.R. Madan (Editor) V.P. Gupta (Editor)
Synopsis Dr. Radhakamal Mukerjee, the doyen of Indian Sociology, in his present work, The Philosophy of Social Science has lamented on the modern movement towards specialization and compartmentalization. Dr. Mukerjee has emphasized the unity of science and awareness of human understanding grounded in certain fundamental principles, techniques and methods. The book aims at an integration of knowledge about human nature and human destiny and is concerned with a penetrating analysis of the foundations of existing social sciences. The work embodies the corpus of a general theory of social phenomenon. The philosophy of social science extends with the various social disciplines and presents an interdisciplinary approach for a dispassionate understanding of the contemporary knowledge scene. The learned author does not accept the dichotomy between science and humanities and interprets human history in the light of the manifold aims set forth by various social sciences.
