Editorial Reviews


"Van Fraassen introduces each topic with care and attention to detail....A thought-provoking and largely well-written monograph...complemented by an extensive bibliography containing important contributions by numerous authors." --Contemporary Physics

"I strongly recommend the book to anyone who aims at a thorough background in this bewildering subject."--The Philosophical Review

About the Author

Bas van Fraassen is McCosh Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University (Emeritus after July 2008) and Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, San Francisco State University. His research interests straddle philosophical logic and philosophy of science, with special interests in empiricism,
(anti-)realism, probability, foundations of relativity and quantum physics, and philosophy of literature. Born in the Netherlands, he studied and taught in Canada and thereafter in the USA; he is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Science and of the Netherlands Royal Academy of Sciences.
Though concentrating on philosophy of science he makes occasional forays into philosophy of literature and the connections between art, literature, and science.
