  3. W. G. Runciman (2010). Hobbes Got It Wrong. The Philosophers' Magazine 51 (51):74-79.
    I was prompted to write a book by re-reading Republic, Leviathan, and The Communist Manifesto for the first time in half a century and wondering how well they would stand up in the light of what present-day sociologists can fairly claim to know that Plato, Hobbes, and Marx did not.

  13. W. G. Runciman (1972). A Critique of Max Weber's Philosophy of Social Science. Cambridge [Eng.]University Press.
    This essay is written in the belief that it is possible to say both where Max Weber's philosophy of social science is mistaken and how these mistakes can be put right. Runciman argues that Weber's analysis breaks down at three decisive points: the difference between theoretical pre-suppositions and implicit value-judgements; the manner in which 'idiographic' explanations are to be subsumed under causal laws; and the relation of explanation to description in sociology. The arguments which Weber put forward are fundamental to (...)
