Book Overview
This book places the careers and writings of four pioneering French social scientists-Theodule Ribot, Alfred Espinas, Pierre Janet and Emile Durkheim-in the context of academic philosophy. Thus, both the intellectual legacy of academic philosophy and the originality of the early social scientists appear in a new and surprising light.
