This nice volume edited by Risjord clarifies how hard the job of the normativist has become ... Undoubtedly normativists will continue to produce ingenious arguments to preserve the idea that philosophy can not only survive or co-exist with, but even compete with science. In order to do that, they will have to engage seriously with the many conceptual and empirical obstacles that are laid out in this volume. -Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews This book picks up a core current debate over whether normativity and naturalism can be reconciled in social science, and extends and deepens it. No philosopher of social science should ignore it. -Don Ross, University of Cape Town, South Africa
