The idea of social science and proper phenomenology

Jonathan Tuckett

This monograph examines an academic discipline in crisis. The author claims that this field concerned with society and relationships is in trouble. No one can seem to agree on what it does or how to go about doing it. His insightful argument revives the thought of key phenomenologists often no longer considered in social science.

This volume concludes that, properly understood, social science is a hobby. It deserves no special place in the university. Indeed, if  it is to be pursuedproperly, it requires a fundamentally revised understanding of humanity. The author argues this not of the sake of controversy. Rather, his intention is to affect the necessary shift in our understanding that will enable future constructive solutions.
