Martin Kusch (University of Vienna)"The Functions of the Social Sciences in Liberal Democracy"
 
 
Abstract:
 
In this paper I criticize authors -- such as S. Turner, M. Burawoy, or P. Kitcher -- who seek to define the functions of the social sciences using a Roslyn conception of liberal pluralism or ideal-deliberative democracy. I defend an alternative way to think about the functions of the social sciences; this way takes its lead from R. Geuss' realist political philosophy and C. Mouffe's "agonistic pluralism".
