The Eclectic Legacy offers a new interpretation of the emergence of the human sciences from philosophy in France. It argues that philosophy, psychology, and sociology helped redefine each other over the course of the nineteenth century through a prolonged debate over the domain of philosophy, the character of science, and the nature of the human world.
