I've joined a little group that is led by Beau Weston (Centre College) and Brandon Vaidyanathan (Notre Dame) on human flourishing and critical realism.
I'm still new to CR, and reading and watching as much as I can, thanks to the CR Network.
We will be reading several articles, book chapters, etc etc on what CR can tell us about the warrants and grounds for social science around human flourishing. In connection with this, I've just been reading Wilkinson and Kleinman's new book A Passion for Society, and they make some excellent points about the origin of social science in a concern for social progress and the reduction of social suffering.
I'm excited to talk with folk about all of this within the lovely confines of Yale.
