"At a time when historical and cultural analyses are being subjected to all manner of ideological and disciplinary examinations, the work of social theorist, Max Weber, is especially relevant. In this study, Fritz Ringer offers a new approach to the work of Weber, interpreting his methodological writings in the context of the German intellectual debates of his day. According to Ringer, Weber was able to bridge the intellectual divide between humanistic interpretation and causal explanation in historical and cultural studies in a way that speaks directly to our own time, when methodological differences continue to impede co-operation between humanists and social scientists. In the place of the humanists subjectivism and the social scientists naturalism, Weber developed the concepts of objective probability and adequate causation. This text grounds technical theories in specific examples, and shows how fully reconstructed, Weber's methodological position in fact anticipated the most fruitful directions in our own contemporary philosophies of the cultural and social sciences. Ringer's conceptualization of Weber's approach and achievement elucidates Weber's reconciliation of interpretive understanding and causal explanation and shows its relevance to intellectual life and culture in Weber's own time and in ours as well" - Publisher's description., Harvard University Press, 1997, 3, Princeton University Press, Jan 1998. 2nd Revised edition.

The traditional debate among philosophers of mathematics is whether there is an external mathematical reality, something out there to be discovered, or whether mathematics is the product of the human mind. This provocative book, now available in a revised and expanded paperback edition, goes beyond foundationalist questions to offer what has been called a "postmodern" assessment of the philosophy of mathematics--one that addresses issues of theoretical importance in terms of mathematical experience. By bringing together essays of leading philosophers, mathematicians, logicians, and computer scientists, Thomas Tymoczko reveals an evolving effort to account for the nature of mathematics in relation to other human activities. These accounts include such topics as the history of mathematics as a field of study, predictions about how computers will influence the future organization of mathematics, and what processes a proof undergoes before it reaches publishable form. This expanded edition now contains essays by Penelope Maddy, Michael D. Resnik, and William P. Thurston that address the nature of mathematical proofs. The editor has provided a new afterword and a supplemental bibliography of recent work. Books List_Books, [PU: Princeton University Press]
