MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is a terrific anthology. It covers a broad range of interesting topics with a nice blend of classical articles and recent work and of traditional philosophy of social science topics such as methodological individualism along with newer areas of interest such as cultural evolution. It is very well suited for use in the classroom as well as for social scientists and philosophers looking for a survey of the current state of play in the field.' - Harold Kincaid, University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA

'The Philosophy of Social Science Reader, edited by Daniel Steel and Francesco Guala, is a welcome, well-organized, and brilliant collection, offering a novel look into a field that has changed enormously in the last 20 years.' - Maria Jimenez Buedo, UNED, Spain in THEORIA
