Product Description


"To summarize, Philosophies of the Sciences is a collection of clearly written, very informative, high–quality chapters that provide readers with good samples of what the philosophies of the various sciences have to offer." (Acta Biotheoretica, 2011)  


"Gone are the days when it seemed reasonable to regard philosophy of science as a monolithic enterprise. The various sciences give rise to their own distinctive philosophical problems, frustrating attempts at unified treatments. This excellent volume recognizes the diversity of philosophical concerns and approaches that the sciences demand. It offers both an aerial view of the relevant intellectual terrain, and a number of close–up surveys – a state–of–the–art resource for students and researchers alike." — Alan Hájek , Australian National University "This welcome addition to the philosophy of science literature will introduce readers to the fertile ground lying between philosophy and real scientific practice." — Colin Allen , Indiana University–Bloomington
