The A Priori Method in the Social Sciences: A Multidisciplinary Approach (ed.)

Springer International, in progress

Book Description:

What came before our disciplines? What are our a priori? These questions, which come to us from the philosophy of science, have been the subject of much theorising.

This book brings together contributions from authors from France, Brazil, Canada, the United States and Israel. It has the entirely original ambition to place social sciences (Law, Philosophy, Economics, Management, Sociology, Anthropology) at the heart of these fundamental questions in an effort to establish a dialogue, both within and beyond the academic community, between our various branches of knowledge about the different postulates, presuppositions, prejudices, paradigms, beliefs, commonplaces, biases or emotions that forge our theoretical and practical constructs. This will allow us to shed light on and discuss their meaning.
