This book provides a good realist defence of nomothetic and quantified social science. A big positive is that the author frequently exemplifies his points with real empirical examples. He also expends a lot of energy on rejecting all forms of interpretive and critical social science, but these arguments are much more shallow. His total rejection of anthropology gives an indication of the limitations of nomothetic philosophy of social science.
