Editorial Reviews

Review

"For anyone wanting a detailed, realistic, well-rounded view of science, Ziman's Real Science is your book." Nature

"Any scientist interested in establishing a more constructive dialogue with the science and technology studies community would be well-advised to read this work." Physics Today

Book Description

Unlike most other similar books, this systematic, carefully reasoned, but non-technical analysis of the nature and significance of scientific knowledge opens the way to reconciliation in the 'science wars'. By describing how academic scientists actually undertake research and communicate their findings, it shows that the philosophy, psychology and sociology of science are inextricably entwined, and that 'realism' and 'relativism' are just two sides of the same coin. As in all Ziman's books, the writing is well-informed, down-to-earth and lucid.
