From a teaching and learning perspective the volume is strengthened by extensive introductions to each of the six sections, as well as a general introduction to the reader as a whole. As far as my knowledge of social and management sciences teaching and research programmes in Bayero University, Kano, this topic of a kind of philosophical probing of social sciences disciplines is very important. It highlights the work of some of the most influential authors who have shaped social science.

    Nomothetic and Ideographic: Nomothetic and ideographic are two basic philosophical ideas to describe two different approaches to knowledge where each is responsible for different intellectual tendency as well as corresponding to a different branch of academic world. Positivism has sometimes met with caricature as a breed of naive empiricism, yet the word has a rich history of applications stretching from Comte to the work of the Vienna Circle and beyond. For example, if there are specific scientific objectives then the study can be laboratory based and use experimental procedures in order to gain knowledge. Curriculum as a field includes curriculum theory, development, implementation that is, instructionand evaluation.

    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel became one of the first philosophers to support this view. For critical realists such as Roy Bhaskartraditional positivism commits an 'epistemic fallacy' by failing to address the ontological conditions which make science possible: that is, structure and agency itself. Most reasonable thinkers thought that philosophical elaboration of epistemology, ontology, metaphysics, ethics or even politics required attention to the methods and achievements of science. In this philosophy[,] propositions are deduced from the phenomena and rendered general by induction.

Both Comte and Marx intended to develop, scientifically, a new secular ideology in the wake of European secularisation. On this account, science is socially constructed, though this does not necessarily imply the more radical notion that reality itself is a social construct.
