"The editors of the volume under review have certainly done a great work by compiling some fruitful and novel contributions to our understanding of issues such as the aim and scope of the metaphysics of science, laws of nature, causation, and natural kinds, which are amongst the most heatedly discussed topics in the arena. ... I strongly recommend the volume to both scientists and philosophers as an engaging, thoroughly informed collection of papers on the current state of the metaphysics of science debate. It represents a valuable contribution to the ever increasing literature and may help to motivate new and fruitful investigations." --Cristian Soto, Metascience
