Newton-Smith walks a reasonble line between the grotesque extremes of logical positivism and deconstructionism. Along the way, he actually gets science right, an attribute of few if any other philosophers of science. I say this as someone who worked as a professional scientist for 13 years.
The book is somewhat repetitive, as it consists of essays that in many cases contain the same or similar arguments. Yet any one of the essays is worth the price of the book.
Besides, you have to love a philosopher of science named "Newton-Smith."
