The conduct of inquiry; methodology for behavioral science by Abraham Kaplan( Book )

62 editions published between 1963 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In arguably the finest text ever written in the philosophy of social science, Abraham Kaplan emphasizes what unites the behavioral sciences more than what distinguishes them from one another. Kaplan avoids the bitter disputes among people doing methodology, claiming instead that what is important are those qualities intrinsic to the overall aspirations of the social sciences. He deals with special problems of various disciplines only so far as may be helpful in clarifying the general method of inquiry. The Conduct of Inquiry is a systematic, rounded, and wide-ranging inquiry into behavioral science. Kaplan is guided by the experience of sciences with longer histories, but he is bound neither to their problems nor to their solutions. Instead, he addresses the methodology of behavioral science in the broad sense of both method and science. The work is not a formal exercise in the philosophy of science but rather a critical and constructive assessment of the developing standards and strategies of contemporary social inquiry. He emphasizes the tasks, achievements, limitations, and dilemmas of the newer disciplines. Philosophers of science usually choose to write about the most fully developed sciences because problems are clearer there. The result is ordinarily of little benefit to the behavioral scientist, whose task is clarification of method; here the precedents and analogies of physical science are obscure or inappropriate. The Conduct of Inquiry goes a long way in drawing upon the strengths of social research insights without simplifying the common concerns of the scientific enterprise as a whole. As Leonard Broom noted when the book initially appeared: "Kaplan fills a gap and does so with admirable clarity and often engaging wit. It lacks pomposity, pedantry, and pretension, and it is bound to make an impact on the teaching of and, with luck, research in the behavioral sciences.""--Provided by publisher
Power and society : a framework for political inquiry by Harold D Lasswell( Book )

109 editions published between 1950 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, Harold D. Lasswell collaborates with a brilliant young philosopher, Abraham Kaplan, to formulate basic theoretical concepts and hypotheses of political science, providing a framework for further inquiry into the political process. This is a classic book of political theory written by two of the most influential social scientists of the twentieth century. The authors find their subject matter in interpersonal relations, not abstract institutions or organizations, and their analysis of power is related to human values. They argue that revolution is apart of the political process, and ideology has a role in political affairs. The importance of class, both as social fact and social symbol, is reflected in their detailed analysis, and emphasis on merit rather than rank, skill rather than status, as keystones of democratic rule. The authors note that power is only one of the values and instruments manifested in interpersonal relations; it cannot be understood in abstraction from other values. Lasswell and Kaplan call for the replacement of "power politics," both in theory and in practice, by a conception in which attention is focused on the human consequences of power as the major concern of both political thought and political action

Love ... and death; talks on contemporary and perennial themes by Abraham Kaplan( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educational television should have one resource that is not always available to commercial television- thoughtful, articulate people. Unfortunately, many American professors are thoughtful but not articulate and even more are articulate but not thoughtful. Abraham Kaplan is a delightful combination of both, and the television series "The World of Abraham Kaplan" was one of the most sparkling, stimulating, and personal series we have ever produced. Now, with the publication of Love ... and Death: Talks on Contemporary and Perennial Themes the reader can quite literally hold Professor Kaplan in his lap and ponder, agree, disagree. And there is much to ponder: Love, Women, Religion, Morals, Technology, Free Speech, Unreason, Loneliness, Mental Health, Aging, and Death
