Description

Reviews

This book discusses problems of scientific methodology, including the nature of scientific reasoning, experimentation, evidence, theory-change, and controversy in science. The essays examine methodological issues involved in various episodes in the history of science from Newtonian physics in the 17th and 18th centuries to quantum mechanics in the 20th century. The book is of interest to those working in the history and philosophy of science. It is accessible to non-specialists as well.

"These seven papers originate from a 1992 NEH summer seminar led by prominent philosopher Achinstein… The selection and editing of the papers are sensible, and there are enough exemplary pieces to recommend this volume to those in introductory courses in history and the philosophy of science." -- P.D. Skiff, Bard College, Choice June 1995.

"The thought-provoking information will interest those in the scientific-technical community as well as those with historical perspective." -- Public Works, September 1995.
