In The Idea of a Social Science, Winch takes a hard stance against naturalistic and positive accounts of social phenomena. In fact, he argues that we cannot understand the meaning of social action causally. Have there been critical responses directly to this claim among late-20th/early-21st Century philosophers?
I would recommend that you get hold of a copy of "The philosophy of Social Science" by Martin Hollis. In this book he considers different approaches for explaining social action including that of Winch.
