    On the Action of Social Groups.Rolf Gruner - 1976 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 19 (1-4):443 – 454.
    This paper deals with the question of whether and when it is appropriate or inappropriate to say that a social group performs an action. After some remarks on the concept of action three kinds of groups are distinguished, i.e. assemblies, institutions, and classes. It is found that in the first two of these cases predication of action is possible: an assembly can act in that all its members act, or some of them do who are interchangeable with any others; and (...)

    Understanding in the Social Sciences and History.Rolf Gruner - 1967 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 10 (1-4):151 – 163.
    Understanding in its widest sense is the aim of all rational knowledge. A distinction can be made between interpretation (leading to the understanding of meanings) and explanation (leading to the understanding of facts). The view that in the social sciences facts and meanings are the same is criticized. In respect of the specific understanding of human and social facts empathetic and rational understanding are distinguished and some of the difficulties pointed out inherent in both, in particular with regard to testability.

    III. The Notion of Understanding: Replies to Cunningham and van Evra.Rolf Gruner - 1969 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 12 (1-4):349-356.
    It is pointed out against the two critics (a) that an identity or partial identity of meanings and facts is logically impossible, (b) that the logical grammar of ?identify? and ?explain? is different from that of ?understand? and that hence understanding can never be an operation of identifying or explaining, and (c) that rational understanding does not involve a ?reproduction? of the subject matter in any controversial sense.

    Mandelbaum on Historical Narrative: A Discussion.William Dray, Richard Ely & Rolf Gruner - 1969 - History and Theory 8 (2):275-294.
    Dray: Mandelbaum legislates regarding the historian's "task" in the guise of descriptive analysis. He seems to envisage two fundamental tasks for the historian: explaining, and relating parts to wholes. Contrary to Mandelbaum's implication, there is no more opposition between narration and either of these tasks than there is between the two tasks themselves.Ely: Mandelbaum refutes White and Danto, who both hold that historical writing is essentially narrative; but not Gallie, who asserts that historical writing is necessarily, but never solely, a (...)
