The Blackwell Guide to the Philosophy of Science

This Guide presents a definitive introduction to the core areas of philosophy of science. Each of the chapters – written especially for this volume by internationally distinguished scholars – reviews a problem, examines the current state of the discipline with respect to the topic, and discusses possible futures of the field. Topics covered include experiment and observation, evolution, molecular and developmental biology, cognitive science, and feminist philosophy of science.

The Blackwell Guide to Philosophy of Science engages both general readers and specialists and provides a solid foundation for further study.
