Understanding Humans

How Social Science Can Help Solve Our Problems

David Edmonds

Compiling the best episodes of SAGE′s ′Social Science Bites′ podcast since its beginning in 2012, this pocket-sized volume is sure to inspire and provoke.  With a foreword by David Edmonds, host of the podcast, this book will show you how social science can help to solve problems in today′s society.  It is structured into sections on identity, learning, human behaviour, social change, and the unexpected, with each chapter offering the perspective of one of the most dynamic thinkers in the social sciences.

Taking a multidisciplinary approach, Edmonds′ selection of interviews includes topics such as racial inequality, moral psychology, the pandemic, and the prison system.  Interviewees include Sam Friedman, Professor of Sociology at LSE, Gurminder K. Bhambra, Professor of Postcolonial and Decolonial Studies at the University of Sussex, and Jennifer Richeson, Professor of Psychology at Yale University.  This book will show you the range of voices in the social sciences today, and how this diversity is what is needed to grapple with the complexity of the issues we face.
