Arguing About Scienceis an outstanding, engaging introduction to the essential topics in philosophy of science, edited by two leading experts in the field. This exciting and innovative anthology contains a selection of classic and contemporary readings that examine a broad range of issues, from classic problems such as scientific reasoning; causation; and scientific realism, to more recent topics such as science and race; forensic science; and the scientific status of medicine. The editors bring together some of the most influential contributions of famous philosophers in the field, including William Whewell, John Stuart Mill, Bertrand Russell, and Karl Popper as well as more recent extracts from philosophers and scientists such as Philip Kitcher, Daniel Dennett, Stephen Jay Gould, Robert Winston, Bas van Fraassen, and Nancy Cartwright. The anthology is organised into ten clear sections: science, non science and pseudo-science race, gender and science are science and religion compatible? scientific reasoning scientific explanation laws and causation science and medicine probability and forensic science risk, uncertainty and science policy scientific realism and anti-realism. The articles chosen are clear, interesting, and free from unnecessary jargon. The editors provide lucid introductions to each section in which they provide an overview of the debate, as well as study questions and further reading.
