Junior Colloquium: Philosophy and Social Inquiry|
This is a course in the philosophy of social science, tailored to fit into the overall curriculum of the College of Social Studies as its Junior Colloquium. The course is a continuation of the Sophomore Social Theory Colloquium, with an emphasis on classic works in philosophy and social theory from the period of post-World War II addressing the topic of the nature of social inquiry. Since theorists' ideas about the nature of social inquiry are typically closely connected to their ideas about the nature of society, questions about the latter will also be featured. Readings from authors such as Hannah Arendt, Michel Foucault, Charles Taylor, Jurgen Habermas, Arthur Danto, Hans Gadamer, and Milton Friedman, among others.
