Science and Partial Truth by Newton C. A. da Costa
Book DescriptionDa Costa and French explore the consequences of adopting a "pragmatic" notion of truth in the philosophy of science-in other words, accepting a theory as valid when it may only be partially true rather than wholly true. Their framework sheds new light on issues dealing with belief, theory acceptance, and the realism-antirealism debate, as well as the nature of scientific models and their heuristic development.
