Product description


Continental philosophers in Britain and the United States have for the most part ignored the enormous contribution of continental philosophy to the philosophy of science, just as philosophers of science in Britain and the United States have done. Gary Gutting has long been a leading exponent of the importance of this contribution and his superb collection, with its many new translations, should go a long way toward turning the tide. Robert Bernasconi, University of Memphis

This masterful collection of original texts and expert commentary demonstrates Continental philosophers rich and diverse engagement with science, dispelling the notion that significant philosophical thinking about science is the sole prerogative of analytic philosophers. Daniel Dahlstrom, Boston University

This book makes a welcome contribution to the secondary literature on the history and philosophy of modern science. Gary Gutting has assembled an impressive gallery of essays, which collectively advance a powerful, if relatively neglected, interpretation of the development of scientific method and practice. The pairing of influential historical figures with leading contemporary commentators is especially valuable. Daniel W. Conway, The Pennsylvania State University

From the Back Cover

Continental Philosophy of Science provides an expert guide to the major twentieth–century French and German philosophical thinking on science. The book refutes the view that twentieth–century continental thought is anti–scientific, and shows how continental thinkers offer distinctive perspectives that both complement and fruitfully interact with analytic philosophy of science.

Collected here are primary texts by Husserl, Heidegger, Foucault, Deleuze, Irigaray, and Habermas, along with previously untranslated essays by Bergson, Bachelard, and Canguilhem, and new translations of work by Hegel and Cassirer. Each primary text is paired with commentary by leading contemporary scholars, including Terry Pinkard, Jean Gayon, Michael Friedman, Richard Tieszen, Joseph Rouse, Mary Tiles, Hans–Jörg Rheinberger, Linda Alcoff, Todd May, Penelope Deutscher, and Axel Honneth. Gary Gutting s introduction, moreover, presents a unified interpretative survey of continental work on philosophy of science.

Rheinberger, Linda Alcoff, Todd May, Penelope Deutscher, and Axel Honneth.
