Plausible Worlds: Possibility and Understanding in History and the Social Sciences
Fundamental questions about the nature of causal explanation as conducted by historians and social scientists are raised in this exploration of counterfactual speculation or what-might-have-been. Its pursuit casts doubt on existing assumptions about the roles of theory as well as knowledge.
