Product description

Review

Review of the hardback: 'I feel that Weber's treatment will move the philosophical discussion well beyond Schaffner's original study … strength of Weber lies in combining two ideals. First, his philosophical discussion is based on detailed case studies from biochemistry, molecular biology, developmental genetics, and neurophysiology. Second, despite close attention to actual science, Weber always keeps questions from the general philosophy of science clearly in view … This is a very rich book, dealing with various issues - questions peculiar to experimental biology as well as basic topics from the general philosophy of science … many of Weber's ideas will serve as a point of reference for future philosophical discussions on molecular biology. Philosophy of Experimental Biology ought to be important for anyone interested in the philosophy of biology.' Biology and Philosophy

Review of the hardback: 'Marcel Weber's book is extremely interesting. It overviews a huge spectrum of viewpoints and case studies and surely represents a precious account of the state of art of the philosophy of experimental biology. An aspect that … enriches [the reading] … is Weber's attempt to always furnish his personal, often distinctive viewpoint.' History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences

Book Description

Philosophy of Experimental Biology explores some central philosophical issues concerning scientific research in experimental biology, including genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, developmental biology, neurobiology, and microbiology. This book should be of interest to philosophers and historians of science as well as to scientists.
