Normativity and Naturalism in the Social Sciences engages with a central debate within the philosophy of social science: whether
social scientific explanation necessitates an appeal to norms, and if so, whether appeals to normativity can be rendered "scientific."
This collection brings together contributions from a diverse group of philosophers who explore a broad but thematically unified
set of questions, many of which stem from an ongoing debate between Stephen Turner and Joseph Rouse (both contributors to
this volume) on the role of naturalism in the philosophy of the social sciences. Informed by recent developments in both philosophy
and the social sciences, this volume will set the benchmark for contemporary discussions about normativity and naturalism.
This collection will be relevant to philosophers of social science, philosophers in interested in the rule following and metaphysics
of normativity, and theoretically oriented social scientists.
