Ideology and the Social Sciences

Synopsis

The extent to which modern social science continues to reflect the subjective traits of authors and the contexts in which they operate, rather than the "objective facts" or "insights" they claim to develop, remains one of the most striking features of social science research and writing. Kinloch and Mohan provide a multidisciplinary and worldwide examination of the ties between the subjective traits of social scientists, the contexts in which they affect research, and the kinds of "knowledge" they produce.
