Wat is kritiese teorie, hermeneutiek, dekonstruksie, positivisme, fenomenologie? Is dit waar dat "anything goes" in die geesteswetenskappe? Wetenskapbeelde in die Geesteswetenskappe verskaf antwoorde op hierdie vrae. Elkeen van hierdie wetenskapbeelde word geskets binne die raamwerk van 'n debat oor sy winspunte en sy beperkings.

Wetenskapbeelde in die Geesteswetenskappe is 'n onontbeerlike gids vir studente, navorsers en dosente wat hul weg wil vind in die debat oor die geesteswetenskappe en wat iets tot hierdie debat wil bedra.

This title is also available in English, Conceptions of Social Inquiry.

Professor Johan Snyman teaches philosophy at the University of Johannesburg. His research interests include aesthetics, social philosophy and philosophy of history. The issues of modernism and postmodernism in aesthetics (Kant, Hegel, Adorno, Derrida, Lyotard) inevitably lead to an exploration of topics such as ideology critique, the social role and significance of art, and in this context in particular, the meaning of the Holocaust and of apartheid for the production of culture. Current research focuses on the theory of the sublime (Kant, Schiller, Lyotard, Celan), theories of trauma, and theories of the politics of remembrance.
