This is a short book, but it goes very deep. The Heythrop Journal Nature and Understanding is a valuable book. The number and range of topics benefiting from Rescher's wisdom is enormous. The book is eminently readable (Rescher knows how to write a good sentence) ... I recommend this book without hesitation to anyone interested in philosophy of science, metaphysics, and epistemology MIND Rescher's latest offering is devoted to some of the most interesting and important issues in philosophy of science.
