There's lots of talk over what "science" really is and what constitutes "scienticity". Despite the fact that the word science comes from the Latin word "scientia" (literally meaning "knowledge"), it seems many have idealized or reified versions of it in mind, not a realistic version. Some seem to blindly and ignorantly assume that science is "empirical" or "conclusive" or "objective" or "strictly observationally based" or "skeptical" or "exclusively inductive" or "not deductive" other simplified maxims popularized by popular science magazines, books, and channels [National Geographic, Discovery, Scientific American, etc]. Research journals and academic writings, on the other hand, generally show more realistic complexities that are common among scientists and science. In reality, science really is all over the place and cannot be purged of emotions, humanity, or bias. Basic things people do inevitably play key roles in science like inquiry, thought, and reasoning as the basis of investigations of nature. These are also the basis for investigating local events, picking a car insurance wisely, managing ones own money, and solving personal problems. This work describes with heavy detail the very "nature" of science and Ernest Nagel does a phenomenal job of putting science where it belongs implicitly - as philosophy. Not only that but the fact that he includes discourse on the social sciences is worth getting the book. Many times when people or the media talk about science they seem to ignore or downplay the social sciences as if they were not sciences or treat them as weak/soft sciences.Read more ›
