Difficulties and Intricacies of Creating and Using Historical Case Studies

Joseph Pitt has written a review for Metascience of our Boston Studies volume on The Philosophy of Historical Case Studies. We appreciate his generally positive tone. I think he is correct that our title overpromises: it would have been more accurate, as he suggests, to title the volume Difficulties and Intricacies of Creating and Using Historical Case Studies. But there must be some concessions to catchiness.

My contribution with Tim Räz gets a few kind words:

What is rewarding in the approach Scholi and Räz develop is its nuanced appreciation of the intricate dance that history and philosophy engage in as they support and confront each other.

That’s not how I usually spell my name, but you take the bitter with the better.
