Exploring Humans is a complete overview of the most important currents in the philosophy of science up to the 21st century. It is an outstanding introduction into the philosophy of science for students of sociology as well as economy.
The authors focus on the 'gamma'-sciences, such as economy, psychology and sociology. Thanks to their clear and accessable writing, attention to contemporary events, the abundance of examples and illustrations, this work is also a fine vademecum for professional philosophers, students of philosophy and scientists in general.
Exploring Humans contains 3 parts: 'Philosophy of Knowledge’, ‘Philosophy of Science’ and ‘New perspectives’. The authors have attempted to present an impartial overview of the history of the philosophy of science. Each chapter is concluded with a short summary, a brief discussion of the literature and references.
