Editorial Reviews


A CHOICE 'Outstanding Academic Title'

'With a distinguished list of internationally renowned contributors, an excellent choice of topics in the field, and well-written, well-edited essays throughout, this compendium is an excellent resource. It will work well for any serious scholar inside or outside the field interested in the current state of philosophy of science. Highly recommended.' - CHOICE

'Highly recommended for history of science and philosophy collections.' – Library Journal

'This well conceived companion, which brings together an impressive collection of distinguished authors, will be invaluable to novices and experience readers alike.' - Metascience

'Here is philosophy of science the way it should be. In these pages some of the very best philosophers working today grapple with the big issues of metaphysics, language, and epistemology as they relate to science. This volume is a true introduction to a philosophy of science that has real stature; a philosophy of science that puts the subject at the crossing point of arguments from across the intellectual landscape.' - Peter Galison, Harvard University, USA

'This is an outstanding companion. With over fifty chapters by uniformly distinguished contributors, it offers a stimulating and often original introduction to every facet of the subject. There is no better guide to the philosophy of science on the market.' - David Papineau, King's College London, UK

'This well conceived and comprehensive volume brings together a remarkable collection of authors, including many of the leading contemporary contributors to the philosophy of science. It will be of great value to students of the philosophy of science at all levels.' - John Dupré, University of Exeter, UK

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is exactly what the title purports it to be: a companion text. It does presuppose some knowledge of the major topics and players in the philosophy of science, and so it makes a good second textbook when one is keen to learn a little more (but not necessarily a whole lot) about a particular area.
