I am hoping someone can recommend good texts concerning interpretivist epistemology.

Thanks.

    Why would there be an anti-something textbook? Or do you just mean critiques of positivism? And some context would be helpful, you want critique of positivism on what specifically, and what is the overarching goal, so to speak? – Conifold Nov 17 '18 at 22:16

    It's also known as interpretivism. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antipositivism. I prefer not to define it in terms of its antithesis. – Dean Young Nov 17 '18 at 22:54

    Those two are pretty different things, the first refers to separate methodology for human sciences, the second to critique of the traditional positivism in philosophy of science. Which is why I asked about your focus and goals. – Conifold Nov 17 '18 at 23:06

    My bad. I am more interested in the second. My focus is on epistemological underpinnings of the methodology, not the methodology itself. I am interested in the philosophy of science in general, but I am really interested in a point of view which critiques logical positivism in the philosophy of science. – Dean Young Nov 17 '18 at 23:11

    Critical section of Wikipedia's Logical Positivism gives a passable short review of the matter with references to book treatments. – Conifold Nov 17 '18 at 23:21
