Philosophy of the Social Sciences 36 (4):464-479 (2006)
|Abstract||In his recent review of my book, The Structure of Social Theory , Karsten Stueber rejected my criticisms of contemporary social theory. Against my "hermeneutic" sociology which prioritizes human social relations, he advocates a return to a dualistic ontology of structure and agency. This reply addresses Stuebers criticisms to re-affirm the ontology of social relations against ontological dualism. Key Words: structure agency hermeneutics social relations.|
