Along the way, central topics in philosophy of science, such as the philosopby of science from non-science, induction, confirmation and falsification, the relationship between theory and observation understandung relativism are all addressed.


Important and complex current debates over underdetermination, inference to the best explaination and the implications of radical theory change are clarified and clearly explained for those new to the subject. Find it on Scholar.
