Format: Paperback
I am a colleague of the author and have used both this and its companion volume in my own work. The following is an excerpt from the review on the back cover:
"How are scientific theories chosen? How are they used? For many years Mario Bunge's cogent and lucid work has provided me with insights into fascinating questions like these" (Owen Gingerich, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics)

Format: Paperback
This is the first book in Philosophy of Science I have read. I may rate this too high but I think it helps me understand the whole picture.
