Editorial Reviews


"Overall, this book is useful both as an introduction to the philosophical literature on mechanisms and as an overview of the main themes in Darden's work. It is a good introduction not only because Darden's views have had such an influence on recent work on mechanisms in philosophy of science, but also because she discusses the work of other philosophers throughout the papers and in the final chapter."
Robyn Bluhm, Ph.D, The University of Western Ontario, Metapsychology Online Reviews.

Book Description

Reasoning in Biological Discoveries brings together a series of essays written and co-written by Lindley Darden that focus on one of the most heavily debated topics of scientific discovery. Darden summarizes the philosophy of discovery and elaborates the role that mechanisms play in biological discovery.
