This book takes a fresh, unorthodox look at the key philosophical concepts and assumptions of the social sciences. Eminent philosopher of science Mario Bunge argues that none of the best known philosophies helps to advance or even understand social science, and he proposes a particular union of rationalism, realism, and systemism as the logical and viable stance for social science practitioners.
