The Conduct of Inquiry is a systematic, rounded, and wide-ranging inquiry into behavioral science. Kaplan is guided by the experience of sciences with longer histories, but he is bound neither to their problems nor to their solutions. Instead, he addresses the methodology of behavioral science in the broad sense of both method and science. The work is not a formal exercise in the philosophy of science but rather a critical and constructive assessment of the developing standards and strategies of contemporary social inquiry

Weaknesses: This book has significant limitations in terms of illuminating social science methodology. This book is not light reading. Kaplan is an old master, sharing the wisdom that comes only after a lifetime of work in one's field

Weaknesses: This book has significant limitations in terms of illuminating social science methodology. The author has a very narrow conception of causation and generalizability. For example, he addresses experiments, but not quasi-experiments or more sophisticated causal modeling techniques. Kaplan is an old master, sharing the wisdom that comes only after a lifetime of work in one's field. Also, he has a vocabulary that could be described as "Buckleyesque", and he doesn't hold back with it. You will want to have a dictionary handy when you read this book.

Abraham Kaplan (June 11, 1918 – June 19, 1993) was an American philosopher, known best for being the first philosopher to systematically examine the behavioral sciences in his book The Conduct of Inquiry (1964). His thinking was influenced by pragmatists Charles Sanders Peirce, William James, and John Dewey. Kaplan's parents were Joseph J. and Chava (Lerner) Kaplan. Abraham's father was a rabbi. He was raised in Odessa, Ukraine.

Nothing personal
Fabulous book that started me into serious reading when I was 19, and am now 71! Everyone tells me how smart I am, but Kaplan started me off. Now though, we need a replacement that is based on Holographic instead of Linear investigation, since Quantum Physics is our new base. Andrea

Strengths: I have not seen another book that integrates discussion of methods and philosophy of science to this degree. It is notable that his focus is on inquiry in the behavioral science since philosophy of science often attends more to physics.
Weaknesses: This book has significant limitations in terms of illuminating social science methodology. The author has a very narrow conception of causation and generalizability. For example, he addresses experiments, but not quasi-experiments or more sophisticated causal modeling techniques. The section on validity makes no mention of Donald Campbell's contributions. Lee Cronbach is not cited at all. There is no mention of Bayes. I find it curious that Kaplan devotes so much attention to laws since he is interested in social science inquiry where laws are scant. Possibly the philosophy of science content has more value than the methodology sections--I am less familiar with that literature.

This book was recommended to me by a friend, a retired lawyer, just a few years before he died. He was very well-read, moreso than you'd imagine a lawyer to be, and he used to rave about what an incredible book this had been. He was very much an intellectual, and this had been perhaps the most influential book in his intellectual life's journey.

When I finally sat down with it, I understood why. Forgive me for using the word so often, but Kaplan, too, is (was?) an intellectual, and of the very first rank. In this book, he dissects the scientific process, with his focus being on the social sciences. His discussion is general enough that pretty much everything he says applies just as well to the hard sciences, too. The ideas he puts forward can be mind-blowing if you haven't encountered them before; facts do not relate to real quantities because our metrics are all made up, and theories are valued for being useful, not for being true. There is more that he says as well, but it has been some years since I've read the book, and I don't have it available to me right now. (When I saw Amazon had no review for this book, I decided I'd ought to weigh in anyway.)

This book is not light reading. Kaplan is an old master, sharing the wisdom that comes only after a lifetime of work in one's field. Also, he has a vocabulary that could be described as "Buckleyesque", and he doesn't hold back with it. You will want to have a dictionary handy when you read this book. (You're laughing at me now, but wait until you start Chapter 1.)

Did I mention this is an excellent book? It has become one of the most influential works in my own intellectual journey (Up there with Hofstader's "Godel, Escher, Bach" and Miles's "GOD; A Biography"), and I rather wish I could talk with my old friend again, to tell him how much I appreciated his recommendation.

(I'm giving it a star rating only because Amazon requires me to; if you don't want to read something heavy and thoughtful, then you should avoid this book. But for that matter, if you want what's in this book, then you should avoid Shakespeare. Should I give Shakespeare two stars?)

my son got this book to assist in his Comp Sci studies, and he is now very happy with this textbook
