Editorial Reviews

Review

A thought-provoking book.
-Choice

Nigel Sanitt's book is a nice momento to stop a while and consider the connections and interplay of various scientific disciplines as well as their influencing a man and thinking about where we are and where to go. It should therefore be recommended to everybody who feels not to be just a 'second-hand journeyman scientist.'
-Acta Physica Slovaca

Format: Paperback
This is a small book about philosophy of science and graph theory. It is a book about the primacy of questions, unambiguos experimental questions: "Why is the microwave background so uniform ?" or "Why do species have a common morphology ?". Sanitt does not believe in answers, he abandons truth as a criterion for science, and refuses to accept progress in science. He formalizes scientific theories with his group theoretic models, and tries to check their internal consistency and capacity to answer questions (their ability to diminish the number of questions). Sanitt discusses normal science and scientific revolutions without kuhnian terminology, but clearly his "black box science" is "normal science" and opening the black box equals a revolution; i.e. reconsidering the foundations in order to solve a new problem. The questions remain, but answers change over time. Sanitt is clear to distinguish between mathematics from science, deductive reasoning from open endedness of science. Towards the end of his essay, he forays into literature, but I think it would have been more interesting to test if anthropology, psychology, etc. qualify as sciences proper in graph theoretic models.
