Product Description

From the Back Cover

"By skillfully blending classics with provocative recent pieces that integrate real science into philosophical discussions, Lange stimulates his readers to do philosophy of science, rather than just learn it."
–– Richard A. Healey, University of Arizona

"Lange has assembled a fine collection of essays in philosophy of science, including familiar established classics, as well as exciting new contributions. The result is an engaging anthology, and anyone interest in the subject, at whatever level, will enjoy and learn from it."
––Barry Gower, University of Durham

"I′m not usually a fan of anthologies, but this one is excellent. Marc Lange provides just the right mix of background material for these important and interrelated papers, supplying key insights, connections, and context, while always letting the pieces ultimately speak for themselves."
––Richard DeWitt, Fairfield University

Philosophy of Science: An Anthology assembles some of the finest papers in the philosophy of science since 1945, showcasing enduring classics alongside important and innovative recent work.

Nine sections address topics at the heart of philosophy of science, including scientific explanations and laws of nature, varieties of causation, and the metaphysical implications of modern physics. Introductions by the editor accompany each section, highlighting connections between selections as well as contextualizing the articles.

Providing an authoritative and accessible overview of the philosophy of science, this volume is a valuable resource for both students and professional philosophers of science.
