  • For Dirk Struikby Robert S. Cohen; J.J. Stachel; Marx W. Wartofsky

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 264.56

    It is fitting that Professor Dirk Jan Struik be greeted with this melange of mathematical, scientific, historical, sociological and political essays. The authors are also appropriately varied: different countries, outlooks, religions, generations, and we suppose - of course we did not as- different politics too. Many more would have joined us, we know,... more...

  • Theory of Scienceby B. Bolzano; Burnham Terrell; Jan Berg

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 264.56

    The present selection from the Wissenschaftslehre (Sulzbach 1837) of Bernard Bolzano (1781-1848) aims at giving a compact view of his main ideas in logic, semantics, epistemology and the methodology of science. These ideas are analyzed from a modern point of view in the Introduction. Furthermore, excerpts from Bolzano's correspondence are included... more...

  • Local Inductionby R. Bogdan

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.80

    The local justification of beliefs and hypotheses has recently become a major concern for epistemologists and philosophers of induction. As such, the problem of local justification is not entirely new. Most pragmatists had addressed themselves to it, and so did, to some extent, many classical inductivists in the Bacon-Whewell-Mill tradition. In the... more...

  • Essays in Memory of Imre Lakatosby Robert S. Cohen; P.K. Feyerabend; Marx W. Wartofsky

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 211.43

    The death of Imre Lakatos on February 2, 1974 was a personal and philosophical loss to the worldwide circle of his friends, colleagues and students. This volume reflects the range of his interests in mathematics, logic, politics and especially in the history and methodology of the sciences. Indeed, Lakatos was a man in search of rationality in all... more...

  • Constellations and Conjecturesby Willard C. Humphreys Jr.; N.R. Hanson

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 169.99

    An occurrence is explained by being related to prior events through known laws. Other intellectual activities may also constitute explanation - but this much certainly does. Ideally, an explained occurrence (0) could have been predicted in a connected way - by extrapolation from prior events (e) via the same laws (L). Schematically, 1 Explanation:... more...

  • Theoretical Concepts and Hypothetico-Inductive Inferenceby I. Niiniluoto; R. Tuomela

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.80

    Conceptual change and its connection to the development of new seien­ tific theories has reeently beeome an intensively discussed topic in philo­ sophieal literature. Even if the inductive aspects related to conceptual change have already been discussed to some extent, there has so far existed no systematic treatment of inductive change due to conceptual... more...

  • Method, Model and Matterby Mario BUNGE

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 138.11

    This collection of essays deals with three clusters of problems in the philo­ sophy of science: scientific method, conceptual models, and ontological underpinnings. The disjointedness of topics is more apparent than real, since the whole book is concerned with the scientific knowledge of fact. Now, the aim of factual knowledge is the conceptual grasping... more...

  • PSA 1974by Robert S. Cohen; Cliff Hooker; Alex C. Michalos; James Van Evra

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.80

    Proceedings of the 1974 Biennial Meeting Philosophy of Science Association. more...

  • Exact Philosophyby Mario BUNGE

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.80

    The papers that follow were read and discussed at the first Symposium on Exact Philosophy. This conference was held at Montreal on November 4th and 5th, 1971, to celebrate the sesquicentennial of McGill University and establish the Society for Exact Philosophy. The expression 'exact philosophy' is taken to signify mathematical phi­ losophy, i.e., philosophy... more...

  • Space, Time, and Geometryby Patrick Suppes

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 180.61

    The articles in this volume have been stimulated in two different ways. More than two years ago the editor of Synthese, laakko Hintikka, an­ nounced a special issue devoted to space and time, and articles were solicited. Part of the reason for that announcement was also the second source of papers. Several years ago I gave a seminar on special relativity... more...
