"An excellent introduction to philosophy of science that can be recommended as a starting point to the general reader... The writing is exceptionally clear and the text is enlivened by periodic snippets of dialogue between enthusiastic science lover Alice and her more sceptical friend Thomas."
"Ladyman... avoids superficiality and addresses topics with a depth that will engage advanced students as well as working scientists and philosophers."
