Synopsis
Surprisingly little attention has been devoted to examining basic assumptions about the purpose, method, and perspective on which the social work profession rests. In "The Philosophical Foundations of Social Work", Frederic Reamer explores core philosophical issues in social work and demonstrates their practical implications for practice and research. The book is organised around five basic realms of inquiry: political philosophy, moral philosophy, logic, epistemology, and aesthetics. Reamer explores their applicability to social work and also examines critical issues in the field such as ethics, the allocation of limited funding, and the role of government in social welfare.
