Aside from a substantial and valuable introduction, the book has three parts: Scientific Method; Conceptual Models; and Metaphysics. Each contains three essays, all of which had been previously published. Remarkably, the flow of the various ideas throughout the book is rather smooth among the different essay topics. Moreover, there is some reassuring reinforcement among certain of the essays despite their disparate subjects/origins. The book was published over forty years ago, so the current status of the ideas presented, even on the author's part, is unknown to me. Nevertheless, the ideas presented were for the most part plausible, well articulated, and interesting to me.
Elsewhere, Professor Bunge has stated that "Exactness is not just fastidiousness but a component of clear thinking, a condition for theorizing." Notably, this book very substantially explicates, exemplifies, and fosters that virtue, especially in the context of scientific research. Early on in the book, the nature and benefits of an axiomatic approach to science are described.Read more ›
