Inquiry Into Inquiries : Essays in Social Theory (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Inquiry Into Inquiries: Essays in Social Theory The essays brought together in this volume examine basic problems in the natural and social sciences and in the theory of knowing and the known. Many of the essays have come to be regarded as classics since their first appearance in technical journals, but are difficult for the gen eral reader to obtain. About a third of this volume consists of essays never before published. Thus within the compass of one volume, the reader can discover for himself the continuity and growth in Dr. Bent ley's inquiries from Knowledge and Society (1910) to the present. The cumulative impact of these essays rivals that of such works as John Dewey's Philosophy and Civilization and William James's Essays in Rad ical Empiricism.
