Faced with a sociological naturalism that relativized claims to truth and justice are necessary for social criticism, the challenge could be answered by detranscendentalizing truth without losing its normativity (Horkheimer 1993, 6; McCarthy, in McCarthy and Hoy 1994, 10). Indeed it is relativism that depends on an implausible and ahistorical form of detachment and impartiality, especially expressed in its methodological commitments to “reverential empathy and description.” The skepticism offered by historicism and the sociology of knowledge is ultimately merely theoretical, the skepticism of an observer who takes the disengaged view from nowhere Ageing in Sub-Saharan Africa: Spaces and Practices of Care (Ageing in a Global Context). Instead, they have claimed that social inquiry ought to combine rather than separate the poles of philosophy and the social sciences: explanation and understanding, structure and agency, regularity and normativity. Such an approach, Critical Theorists argue, permits their enterprise to be practical in a distinctively moral (rather than instrumental) sense. They do not merely seek to provide the means to achieve some independent goal, but rather (as in Horkheimer's famous definition mentioned above) seek “human emancipation” in circumstances of domination and oppression Beyond Sixty-Five: The Dilemma of Old Age in America's Past.

As I have argued elsewhere (Goodwin and Hughes 2011) while biographical methods may be underpinned, to some extent, by a naive realism – that biographies, life stories and letters are based in and reflect some kind of reality (Roberts 2002), or as Stanley (2004) argues, ‘ultimately letters matter because they are concerned with real lives’ (Stanley 2004: 223), other authors, such as Elias (2001), allow us to view biographies, letters and so forth not as ‘static’ objects but instead as ‘processes’ highlighting relationships past, present and (possible) future and which refer to changing balances of power and changing interdependencies Social Gerontology: A Multidisciplinary Perspective (6th Edition).
