"Trigg's study is a lively and informative introduction to the philosophical issues at the heart of our efforts to either understand or explain social phenomena. He questions naturalistic accounts of social science and argues that the core philosophical assumptions within such inquiry will prove neither innocuous nor dissolve through empirical methods." Robert D'Amico, University of Florida
