From time to time I have conducted interviews with a number of innovative social scientists, historians, and philosophers. The purpose of the interviews is to explore with these thinkers some new ideas about the direction that the social sciences ought to be taking. Interviews are posted on the UnderstandingSociety channel on YouTube.
