Overview

Earlier than other social scientists did, the contributors to this book explored emerging areas of study such as-gender equity, political violence, peace, and conflict-and shaped these areas for the current generation of social scientists and those to follow. Their interdisciplinary, problem-centered, and rigorous scholarship has brought them the accolades of their professional and other scholarly associations.  They have achieved national and international acclaim for their scholarship and hold or held prestigious positions at some of the best schools in the United States and abroad.

These six contributors came together on October 24, 2003 at Antioch College as representatives of the post-World War II period when Antioch was a nebula that fashioned intellectual, cultural, and political stars.  They reflected on their personal backgrounds, their scholarship, and the role that Antioch College had in building on the first and training for the second.

In these pages, they speak to an element of the social sciences often ignored-courage. They address the place of values in social science, the challenges they addressed in their careers, and the challenge for future social scientists and their students to continue interdisciplinary, problem-centered, relevant, and rigorous social analysis.

What People Are Saying

Craig Calhoun
"During the 1950s [an] extraordinary group of intellectuals entered social science and helped to remake both it and the larger social world. Though they were exceptional individuals, they were also the products of impressive social institutions. One of the most important was Antioch College, and it is on this formative environment for courage as well as creativity that the scholars writing in this book reflect. Their essays are telling and stimulating. They should be assigned to all undergraduates considering careers in social science, and they will repay the attention of graduate students and professors."
President, Social Science Research Council
Mary Field Belenky
"Antioch's interdisciplinary approach to the social sciences at mid-century was remarkable. Knowledge was to be "constructed" not "learned." Collaboration was encouraged. Everyone was expected to do outstanding work. Social goals and values were central to all of the discussions. These papers and the remarkable careers of the authors illustrate the extraordinary power of this educational approach. "
'55. Co-author of Women's Ways of Knowing and A Tradition that Has No Name
Warren Bennis
"This is a book for those teachers who see themselves as mentors and leaders."
50, Author of On Becoming a Leader, Distinguished Professor of Management, University of Southern California
William A. Gamson
"These Antiochians have kept their focus on the critical question for social scientists: What do we want from democratic institutions?"
