The History and Philosophy of Social Science

Gordon, H. Scott

This book is about what modern social science is and how it came to be what it is. The ideas that we carry around with us have their own history, and this book tells us where these ideas come from."-James M. Buchanan, 1986 Nobel Laureate in Economics "Professor Gordon has created a work of rare authority in this riveting and beautifully written history of the social sciences. The book is at once scholarly and popular."-Mark Blaug, University of London "This is a major work which is set to become a classic. Scott Gordon has written what is not only a scholarly and extremely useful survey of the development of ideas in the social sciences . . . but also a thoroughly engaging and enjoyable book.
