Philosophy of Social Science
This course explores philosophical issues concerning the methodology, history, aims and status of the social sciences, such as: Are there laws governing human behaviour? Do social groups have a reality and agency in their own right, beyond that of the individuals that comprise them? What is the relation between the social and natural sciences? How should we understand social norms? Are objectivity and political neutrality possible, or desirable, in the social sciences?
