About the Book

Contextualism as a philosophy of science has been receiving increased attention from psychologists and other social scientists frustrated with the dominant mechanistic view within psychology. This volume explores a wide range of contextualistic views within psychology and the social sciences. These are fresh approaches that cut across old quarrels and polarities.

This volume is composed of thirteen chapters, each followed by brief discussions that elaborate and elucidate the contributions. It is intended for professionals and students in the social sciences. Varieties is one of only a small number of contemporary volumes focusing exclusively on contextualism as a world view.
