Description - Continental Philosophy of Science by Gary Gutting
Continental Philosophy of Science provides an expert guide to the major twentieth-century French and German philosophical thinking on science. The book refutes the view that twentieth-century continental thought is anti-scientific, and shows how continental thinkers offer distinctive perspectives that both complement and fruitfully interact with analytic philosophy of science. Collected here are primary texts by Husserl, Heidegger, Foucault, Deleuze, Irigaray, and Habermas, along with previously untranslated essays by Bergson, Bachelard, and Canguilhem, and new translations of work by Hegel and Cassirer. Each primary text is paired with commentary by leading contemporary scholars, including Terry Pinkard, Jean Gayon, Michael Friedman, Richard Tieszen, Joseph Rouse, Mary Tiles, Hans-Jorg Rheinberger, Linda Alcoff, Todd May, Penelope Deutscher, and Axel Honneth. Gary Gutting's introduction, moreover, presents a unified interpretative survey of continental work on philosophy of science. Rheinberger, Linda Alcoff, Todd May, Penelope Deutscher, and Axel Honneth.
