Product description


'In summary, Hacking's book is an extremely valuable contribution … I urge you all to read it and to use it in your courses on the philosophy of science.' British Journal of the Philosophy of Science

' … its refreshingly provocative style and broad sweep will excite readers much more than the usual woodenly written introductions.' The Times Literary Supplement

Book Description

This 1983 book is a lively and clearly written introduction to the philosophy of natural science, organized around the central theme of scientific realism. The first part deals with the different philosophical accounts of scientific objectivity and the reality of scientific entities. The second presents a sustained treatment of experimental science.
