Baker, F. Mervin Books

Proposing a New Scientific Method and Biosocial Theory to Explain Western Society
1998 0-7734-8310-1
Creates solid conceptual ground for a new start in biosocial theory because its method draws on two major episodes in the discovery of general theory: a method of comparison and classification, practiced explicitly in the Daltonian episode and tacitly in the Newtonian. The result, 'Compositional Theory', is used to interpret Western history and our present situation. The book raises timely issues not only for the philosophy of science and social science, but also for anyone concerned about the current ordeal of the modern outlook.
