Contemporary Debates in Philosophy of Science by Christopher Hitchcock

Book Description

"Contemporary Debates in Philosophy of Science" contains sixteen original essays by leading authors in the philosophy of science, each one defending the affirmative or negative answer to one of eight specific questions, including: Are there laws of social science? Are causes physically connected to their effects? And, is the mind a system of modules shaped by natural selection? This book brings together fresh debates on eight of the most controversial issues in the philosophy of science. Each question is treated by a pair of opposing essays written by eminent scholars, and especially commissioned for the volume. A lively debate format sharply defines the issues, and paves the way for further discussion. It will serve as an accessible introduction to the major topics in contemporary philosophy of science, whilst also capturing the imagination of professional philosophers.
