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

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.40

    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$ 137.44

    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...

  • Exact Philosophyby Mario BUNGE

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.40

    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$ 179.73

    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...

  • Scientific Proceduresby David Short; L. Tondl

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 169.16

    For a decade, we have admired the incisive and broadly informed works of Ladislav Tondl on the foundations of science. Now it is indeed a pleasure to include this book among the Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science. We hope that it will help to deepen the collaborative scholar­ ship of scientists and philosophers in Czechoslovakia with the English­... more...

  • Biology, History, and Natural Philosophyby A. D. Breck

    Springer US 2012; US$ 81.40

    In a world that peers over the brink of disaster more often than not it is difficul t to find specific assignments for the scholarly community. One speaks of peace and brotherhood only to realize that for many the only real hope of making a contribution may seem to be in a field of scientific specialization seemingly irrelevant to social causes and... more...

  • Biology, History, and Natural Philosophyby Allan D. Breck

  • Science a Road to Wisdomby Peter Wesly; E.W. Beth

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.40

    A few days before his death my husband requested me to write a few words of thanks on the publication of this collection of articles. He had already prepared the greater part of the volume for the press and had also decided on the title Science a Road to Wisdom. His original selection was somewhat more comprehensive, which is still partly reflected... more...

  • Scientific Methodby J.K. Feibleman

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.40

    There remains only the obligation to thank those who have helped me with specific suggestions and the editors who have kindly granted permission to reprint material which first appeared in the pages of their journals. To the former group belong Alan B. Brinkley and Max O. Hocutt Portion of chap­ ters I and VI were published in Philosophy of Science;... more...

  • The Justification of Scientific Changeby C.R. Kordig

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 95.15

    In this book I discuss the justification of scientific change and argue that it rests on different sorts of invariance. Against this background I con­ sider notions of observation, meaning, and regulative standards. My position is in opposition to some widely influential and current views. Revolutionary new ideas concerning the philosophy of science... more...
