Author(s)
Overview
This volume introduces-- and argues for the fundamental importance of-- an interpretive approach to explaining social and political reality. Interpretivism maintains that the study of human behaviour is historical, cultural, and narrative in form and that studying human actions therefore inescapably requires the interpretation of meanings-relating beliefs, action, and practices to further webs of meaning. The authors will outline, in an accessible and engaging manner, their comprehensive approach to an interpretative social science and situate it within the broad range of approaches that have developed as part of the 'interpretive turn' in social science methodology in the last half-century or more.
