Opis: The Bloomsbury Companion to the Philosophy of Science

The Bloomsbury Companion to the Philosophy of Science presents a practical and up-to-date research resource to the philosophy of science. Addressing fundamental questions asked by areas that have continued to attract interest historically, as well as recently-emerging areas of research, this volume provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the philosophy of science. Specially-commissioned essays from an international team of experts reveal where important work continues to be done in the area and the exciting new directions the field is taking. The Companion explores issues pertaining to the philosophy of specific sciences (physics, biology, neuroscience, economics, chemistry and mathematics) and general issues in the field, such as explanation, realism, representation, evidence, reduction, laws, causation and confirmation. Featuring a series of indispensable research tools, including an A to Z of key terms and concepts, a chronology, a detailed list of resources and a fully annotated bibliography, The Bloomsbury Companion to the Philosophy of Science the essential reference tool for anyone working in philosophy of science today. This Bloomsbury Companion provides a comprehensive approach to the field with uniformly well-written essays.The study as a whole is an ably drawn compendium of a wide range of problems, together with a forward-looking perspective on emerging trends in the field. This will be an important reference work for all collections in the philosophy of science. Highly recommended. Choice Written with an eye on future developments, the Companion surveys the current state of the philosophy of science. All the articles are new and written in a fresh style by top notch people,many of whom are established figures in the field... Forty years ago, Paul Feyerabend (1970) complained that philosophy of science was "a subject with a great past". Steven French and Juha Saatsi's book gives us every reason to believe that it now has a great future. -- Metascience This anthology is a welcome antidote to both of thesetrends. Collected in this volume are introductions to some of the best new workbeing done in the philosophy of science, written in a way that is accessibleand interesting to specialists and nonspecialists alike. Unlike many of itscompetitors, it also underscores the many deep connections between philosophyof science and other subfields, such as metaphysics, epistemology, and history. -- Notre Dame Philosophical Review, Alisa Bokulich, Boston UniversityNotes on Contributors 1.
