Brian Epstein, "The Ant Trap: Rebuilding the Foundations of the Social Sciences." Reviewed by
AbstractIn&nbsp;The Ant Trap, Brian Epstein proposes a bold new systematic strategy for developing social ontology. &nbsp;He explores the history and current state of the art and provides pointed critiques of leading theories in the field. &nbsp;His framework, incompassing frames that provide principles for grounding social facts, is developed in some detail across a variety of social practices and applied to revealing real world as well as hyporthetical examples. &nbsp;If Epstein's account holds, it should provide new directions and standards of inquiry in both social sciecne and social philiosophy.
