Philosophy of Science


Samuel Pintuck and Colin Reynolds (Editors)

Series: World Philosophy

The philosophy of science is concerned with the assumptions, foundations, methods and implications of science. It is also concerned with the use and merit of science and sometimes overlaps metaphysics and epistemology by exploring whether scientific results are actually a study of truth. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the philosophy of science including explaining global interactions; Poincare’s enigmatic relationship with logic and the infinite; providing analogous insight regarding ontological issues and a conceptual parallel between Heisenberg’s and Bohm’s interpretation of quantum mechanics.
