  • Science is Godby D. F. Horrobin

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.80

    I am becoming increasingly disturbed by the lack of under­ standing of science revealed by politicians, industrialists and the general public. I am also concerned about the widespread mis­ use of the word "scientific" which is more and more being used in situations where it is quite inappropriate. As a result, in some circumstances gross overestimates... more...

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

    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.

His original selection was somewhat more comprehensive, which is still partly reflected... more...

  • The Justification of Scientific Changeby C.R. Kordig

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 95.61

    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...

  • Form and Strategy in Scienceby J.R. Gregg; F.T.C. Harris

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.80

    Men of science are sometimes mistrustful of or at least impatient with philosophy. One of them, himself no stranger to hard thought, was one day heard to comment on his colleagues in another faculty and on their propensity to indulge in what he called "all this nonsense about thinking". Against this may perhaps be set a meeting of philosophers who... more...
