The Possibility of Naturalism: A Philosophical Critique of the Contemporary Human Sciences

Routledge (1979)

Abstract
Since its original publication in 1979, The Possibility of Naturalism has been one of the most influential works in contemporary philosophy of science and social science. It is a cornerstone of the critical realist position, which is now widely seen as offering a viable alternative to move positivism and postmodernism. This revised edition includes a new foreword.
