Ontological Examination of Pragmatism in Social Science

Let’s explore a couple of ways philosophy can be applied in social science, shall we?

That was a rhetorical question by the way…

The REAL QUESTION is what parameters set forth will implicate and expand other potentiality in the practical use of pragmatism in social science. It is a transcendental consideration in and of itself; in that, it corroborates the currently accepted ontological perspective and application in social science. Therefore, it may be essential to acquire and explicate the following requisites relating to these specific contextual factors:

(I) It must clarify information structure as a theoretical mediation that may or may not encapsulate fallacious arguments.

(II) Sociocultural theories must validate and accommodate the outlined epistemological parameters, to extend the collective social framework. This will produce a larger group of outliers and a significant reduction in the gap in the currently accepted social stratification system; it can only apply in the combination of the following dichotomy: Anti-foundationalism and Platonic Realism; due to its hylomorphism that underpins this premise.

(III) It presents an external and independent constraint in the affirmation of agency and its axiological province within the theoretical mediation, as relating to condition (I).

This means:

(I) Surmising pragmatic use of anti-foundational and Platonic realism creates a schism that insinuates that truth-relativism is objectively, methodically, and consequently establishes merit for this conceptual model of neorealism, because the politics change the ontological approach in socially integrated cultures with; (II) a social realist meta-theory regarding the pragmatism of emergent properties to elucidate the methodology (i.e. the identification of alternative concepts and practical research) that provides validation and theoretical expansion for this theoretical mediation as well as opportunities for a transcendental movement in social science.

Bottom Line

This theory is only an alternate role for ontological projections in the philosophy of social science, which operates much more efficiently in this regard by emphasizing the ontological principles applied to obtain a schism in social science and the applying complex interpersonal theories, relevant scientific models, and relevant interpretative approaches that have been established in the field or can expand upon the provided theories.
