PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE
A Contemporary Introduction (Routledge Contemporary Introductions to Philosophy) 4th Edition
(with Alex Rosenberg)

PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE

Now Available!

Any serious student attempting to better understand the nature, methods, and justification of science will value Alex Rosenberg and Lee McIntyre's updated and substantially revised fourth edition of Philosophy of Science: A Contemporary Introduction. Weaving lucid explanations with clear analyses, the volume is a much- used, thematically oriented introduction to the field.

The fourth edition has been thoroughly rewritten based on instructor and student feedback, to improve readability and accessibility, without sacrificing depth. It retains, however, all of the logically structured, extensive coverage of earlier editions, which a review in the journal Teaching Philosophy called "the industry standard" and "essential reading."

Key Features of the Fourth Edition:

  • Revised and rewritten for readability based on feedback from student and instructor surveys.
  • Updated text on the problem of underdetermination, social science, and the realism/antirealism debate.
  • Improved continuity between chapters.
  • Revised and updated Study Questions and annotated Suggested Readings at the end of each chapter.
  • Updated Bibliography.

Praise


"Sets the industry standard. This book is essential reading for any serious student of the philosophy of science....[It] provides a comprehensive, sophisticated presentation of the current state of the field, yet it is clear enough to be accessible to students. [This] text gets my highest recommendation for courses with students who are academically well prepared and motivated."
   —W. Russ Payne, in Teaching Philosophy
