Description: This new anthology, which integrates explanatory text, primary source readings, and case studies, provides students of any major (philosophy, science, or other) with an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the philosophy of science. nbsp; The anthology is organized around a unique ldquo;three-prongedrdquo; approach: the metaphysical (what), the epistemological (how), and the axiological (why).nbsp; The coverage of issues builds coherently and logically: from issues of scientific method to ethical issues, to the most current social and political implications of science demonstrating how philosophy of science is relevant in a modern day context.nbsp; The anthology carefully examines the theoretical apparatus of the philosophy of science and applies it to rich case studies from the history of science.
