Description
What is critical theory, hermeneutics, deconstruction, positivism, phenomenology? Is it true that "anything goes" in the social sciences? This book provides answers to these questions. Each conception of social inquiry is framed within the context of an ongoing debate on its merits and limits. Conceptions of Social Inquiry is an indispensible compass for students, researchers and lecturers who want to find their bearings in the debate on the social sciences and want to contribute to this debate.

This title is also available in Afrikaans, Wetenskapbeelde in die Geesteswetenskappe.
