Can science prove everything? Highly recommend this short survey for anyone who wants to understand the power - and limits - of scientific inquiry. site Edition Verified download. By their very nature, books of the "Very Short Introduction" series cannot possibly deliver an in-depth treatment of any of their subject matters. Then again, this doesn't mean an author cannot use this accessible format to stimulate and inform the reader, while maintaining as much rigor as one can expect from books aimed at a general audience.

That is exactly what Samir Okasha manages to do here. The reader will find standard sections on what science is, the basics of scientific reasoning, and the nuances of what counts as an explanation in science. But Okasha also gets into a bit more tricky territory, such as the disputes between realists and anti-realists, and even takes a balanced look at science critics believe me, it's not easy to be fair and balanced there!

Chapter six, on sample problems in the philosophy of physics, biology and psychology, gives the reader a flavor of what actual philosophical investigation looks like.

This is, of course, no substitute for more substantive books on the philosophy of science, but it sure counts as a very good short introduction. See all 99 reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed.
