"The Encyclopedia underlines interdisciplinary connections between the humanities and the scientific study of the social world, for the first time providing readers coming from different disciplinary backgrounds a vista from which to survey novel aspects of the relationships between the humanities and the social sciences."
The Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences edited by Byron Kaldis, provides a unique, needed, and invaluable resource for researchers at every level. Unique because nothing else offers the breadth of coverage found in this work; needed because it permits researchers to find longer but also relatively brief, clear, but nonetheless expert articles introducing important topics; and invaluable because of the guidance offered to both related topics and further study.
The Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences edited by Byron Kaldis covers an enormous range of topics in philosophy and the social sciences and the entries are compact overviews of the essential issues.
This Encyclopedia, magnificently edited by Byron Kaldis, will become a valuable source both of reference and inspiration for all those who are interested in the interrelation between philosophy and the many facets of the social sciences. A must read for every student of the humanities.
Byron Kaldis' Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences is a triumph. The entries are consistently good, the coverage is amazing, and he has managed to involve the whole scholarly community in this field. It shows off the field very well, and will be a magnificent resource for students and others.
Like all good works of reference this Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences is not to be treated passively: it provides clear and sometimes controversial material for constructive confrontation. It is a rich resource for critical engagement. The Encyclopedia conceived and edited by Byron Kaldis is a work of impressive scope and I am delighted to have it on my bookshelf.
"This splendid and possibly unique work steers a skilful course between narrower conceptions of philosophy and the social sciences. It will be an invaluable resource for students and researchers in either or both fields, and to anyone working on the interrelations between them.
A work of vast scope and widely gathered expertise, the Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences is a splendid resource for anyone interested in the interface between philosophy and the social sciences.
"...Because of the unique interdisciplinary nature of the work, its scope ranges from the minute to the monumental, with a number of perennial topics...covered in an aggregate of shorter entries from a variety of perspectives....The Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences contains a wealth of information that intellectualizes a new paradigm for our understanding of the relationship between the two subjects.
"...Although book-length treatments and collections of essays on this subject are available, this is the first encyclopedic work on this subject. The entries are clearly written, informative, and instructive. In most cases they explain the significance of a particular philosophy term to the social sciences, a feature that distinguishes this work from a general encyclopedia of philosophy....Summing Up: Recommended."
"This is a 'Back to the Future' volume which undoes the damage that the arts/science divide has done to social science. The carefully crafted entries of the Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences edited by Byron Kaldis reveal the philosophical rigor that any study of the human social world requires. Social scientists who struggle with 'concepts' and 'methods', 'ontologies' and 'epistemologies', will find, at last, a reliable and comprehensive source of enlightenment."
"This is a first rate resource for philosophers, social scientists, and science scholars. Thorough in its topics, with articles written by prominent scholars in engaging and accessible terms, it should be a must for those interested in the history and philosophy of social science, and the social sciences."
