Abstract [en]

How are we to understand causal relations and analysis in socialscience? This paper takes R. G. Collingwood’s writing aboutcausation as its point of departure for the answering of thisquestion. Two different kinds of causal relations are distinguishedfrom pseudo-causality; of the former, one is directly connected toreason, the other to our ability to manipulate the world. Theirinterconnection and significance are discussed and theconclusions are drawn that (a) causality belongs to the realm ofhuman praxis and that (b) causal analysis proper is well suited forthe social sciences. It is further showed that some importantexplanations are not causal in any of the above-mentionedsenses. These explanations could conceivably be calledinterpretative descriptions, but it is suggested that perhaps theycan be understood as examples of causa sui, of something selfcaused.

Abstract [en]

Hans Skjervheim was one of the most influential philosophers of social science in the Scandinavian countries during the twentieth century. This paper contributes to the understanding of one of his central meta-scientific distinctions – between the participant and the spectator – by relating him to surprisingly similar distinctions found in the works of Max Scheler. It is well-known that Skjervheim studied Scheler, but the latter’s direct (and partly unacknowledged) influence on Skjervheim’s central distinction has not been noticed. Through an examination of similarities between Skjervheim and Scheler, an interpretation of Skjervheim is reached, which renders, so the paper additionally argues, some contemporary criticism of his work less valid than might be thought.

Abstract [sv]

Denna artikel försöker visa att Hans Skjervheims välkända och inflytelserika distinktion mellan «deltakar og tilskodar» har en i stora delar direkt motsvarighet i Max Schelers arbeten från 1910-talet, och argumenterar vidare för att Skjervheim, som var välbekant med Schelers arbeten, faktiskt har hämtat de centrala tankegångarna i essän «Deltakar og tilskodar» från dessa. Denna tolkning kastar visst nytt ljus över Skjervheims arbete och kan i någon mån bidra till att försvara detta mot samtida kritik. På så vis avser denna artikel att dels utgöra ett litet bidrag till den norska positivismkritikens historia, dels bidra till tolkningen av ett av dess mest kända verk.
