What Is This Thing Called Science?

Author: Alan Chalmers

This title is currently unavailable for purchase.

This indispensable new edition brings Chalmers' popular text up to date with contemporary trends and confirms its status as the best introductory textbook on the philosophy of science. This revised and extended edition offers a concise and illuminating treatment of major developments in the field over the last two decades with the same accessible style, which ensured the popularity of previous editions. Of particular importance is the examination of Bayesianism and the new experimentalism, as well as new chapters on the nature of scientific laws and recent trends in the realism versus anti-realism debate.

"It is written clearly with a minimal use of technical terms ... it successfully introduces the reader to basic issues, and it does so in a way that captures the interest of the reader and makes the issues seem real." - F. John Clendinnen, Australasian Journal of Philosophy
