概要 Many in the field of social science recognize that attempts to understand the complex social world using the approaches of the 'hard sciences' are mostly useless. This book explores the relationship b...tween social research as a process and the ways in which it is used in contemporary society. Chapter 1 addresses the methodological foundations of applied social science and critiques meta-theoretical and positivist positions. Subsequent chapters cover constructing evidence in social science, evaluating the worth of social interventions, the selective use of social science in justifying policy and practice, and the role of social research in relation to new modes of govnernance. The process of creating and applying physical, mathematical, and computer simulation models in social science is also examined, and the difference between social science as practiced in the academy and in organizations such as think tanks is explored. The author recommends the development of a post-disciplinary model for 21st century social science. The audience for the book includes academics and students in social science disciplines as well as policy makers and practitioners. Byrne teaches sociology and social policy at Durham University. The book is distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
In contemporary societies, social science has become increasingly linked with governance processes. At the same time there is an increasing recognition that attempts to understand the complex social world using similar approaches to 'hard sciences' are mostly useless. This wide-ranging book explores the relationship between social research as a process and the ways in which it is used in contemporary society and how it might be applied in the future. A central argument is that there is no such thing as a 'pure' science of the social and that a recognition of the inevitability of application imposes obligations on social scientists wherever they work which challenge the passivity of most in the face of inequality and injustice. It will therefore be of interest to academics and students across a range of social science disciplines as well as to policy makers and practitioners. Book jacket.
