這本書主要被設計來介紹處於一種喧鬧和開放競爭狀態下的社會科學哲學,社會科學家對於知識建構議題的各項爭論觀點。它提供給我們一個從實證主義到後現代主義對於知識建構觀點的介紹,並且使用許多社會科學中所熟知的重要關鍵概念。當然有一些重要的關鍵概念在二十世紀的後期,已經被許多學者強烈的質疑並提出挑戰,這些學者並建議未來社會科學家在規劃一條新的知識建構路線時,必須要更加小心地行走才行。而在這本書中,我們除了簡要地勾勒出社會科學家過去已經行走過的路徑之外,也希望透過這樣的方式,使讀者了解在科學歷史發展的過程中,科學家所面臨的某些問題和障礙以及他們曾經犯下的某些錯誤。

[From English version]
How do social scientists study the social world? Is social scientific practice in transformation? Can social science learn from its own past?

Social Science in Question provides an accessible and authoritative guide to both traditional debates and new approaches to knowledge construction in the social sciences. The book takes the reader on an intellectual journey starting with the story of modern science and the impact that this has had on social scientific practice, and going on to outline and critically review the major approaches to social scientific inquiry, ranging from positivism to postmodernism.

This innovative text poses questions about the recent 'cultural turn' in the social sciences. The central dilemmas of the philosophy of social sciences are readdressed in the light of contemporary debates on: perception and imagination; detachment and involvement; simplicity and complexity; representation and reality; and subjectivity and objectivity.
