Summary
  • Two root issues in the methodology of explanatory social research are examined in this book - the meaning of the idea of causation in social science and the question of the physiological mechanism that generates intentional behavior. Conclusions on these as well as on several derived problems emerge through the analysis
  • Among the latter, the analysis shows that neither universal nor probabilistic laws governing human behavior are possible, even within the positivist or empiricist traditions in which laws are a central feature. Instead, the analysis reveals a more modest view of explanatory social theory and what it can accomplish. In this view, the kind of theory that can be produced is basically the same in form and content across quantitative and qualitative research approaches, and across different disciplines
  • The two streams of analysis are combined with resulting implications for large-sample, small-sample, and case study research design as well as for laws and theory. Written for the practicing empirical researcher in political science and organization theory, whether quantitative or qualitative, the major issues and findings of The Causes of Human Behavior are meant to hold as well for history, sociology, and other social science disciplines
