Philosophy of Science: A Contemporary Introduction

Synopsis

Science is perhaps the sole distinctively western institution adopted by all cultures who have come in contact with it. And yet its scope, nature and methods have been contested throughout its history. Philosophy of Science identifies the profound philosophical problems that science raises through an examination of enduring questions about its nature, methods, and justification. Coming to grips with the nature of explanation, laws and causation, among others, turns out to be a matter of facing the same questions that Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Hume, Kant and their successors grappled with.
