  • Natural Laws in Scientific Practiceby Marc Lange

    Oxford University Press, USA 2000; US$ 59.99

    It is often presumed that the laws of nature have special significance for scientific reasoning. But the laws' distinctive roles have proven notoriously difficult to identify--leading some philosophers to question if they hold such roles at all.

    Oxford University Press 1986; US$ 72.99

    A new approach to the definition of scientific explanation. Unlike standard theories, it focuses initially on the explaining act itself, to which reference must be made in order to understand what an explanation is and how it can be evaluated in the sciences. more...

  • Nomic Inferenceby Salvator Cannavo

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    Those who speak of the philosophy of science do not all have the same sort of study in mind. For some it is speculation about the overall nature of the world. Others take it to be basic theory of knowledge and perception. And for still others, it is a branch of philosophical analysis focused speci­ is meant to be a study falling under fically on science.... more...

  • Nominalistic Systemsby Rolf A. Eberle

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    1. 1. PROGRAM It will be our aim to reconstruct, with precision, certain views which have been traditionally associated with nominalism and to investigate problems arising from these views in the construction of interpreted formal systems. Several such systems are developed in accordance with the demand that the sentences of a system which is acceptable... more...

  • The One Culture?by Jay A. Labinger; Harry Collins

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 30.00

    So far the "Science Wars" have generated far more heat than light. Combatants from one or the other of what C. P. Snow famously called "the two cultures" (science versus the arts and humanities) have launched bitter attacks but have seldom engaged in constructive dialogue about the central issues. In The One Culture?, Jay A. Labinger and Harry Collins... more...

  • Philosophical Problems of Modern Physicsby W. Riemer; Peter Mittelstaedt

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 129.00

    Professor Peter Mittelstaedt is a physicist whose primary concern is the foundations of current physical theories. This concern has made him, through his prolonged, incisive and detailed examinations of the structures and overall characteristics of these theories, into a philosopher of physic- of contemporary physics, to be precise, of relativistic... more...

  • Philosophical Problems of Space and Timeby Adolf Grünbaum

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 329.00

    It is ten years since Adolf Griinbaum published the first edition of this book. It was promptly recognized to be one of the few major works in the philosophy of the natural sciences of this generation. In part, this is so because Griinbaum has chosen a problem basic both to philosophy and to the natural sciences - the nature of space and time; and... more...
