Author(s): Peter Achinstein
While the scientist works essentially with what he observes, with the measurable properties of nature, the philosopher of science is concerned to formulate the conceptual foundations of the scientific method. In this systematic study, Professor Achinstein analyzes such concepts as definitions, theories, and models, and contrasts his view with currently held positions that he finds inadequate.
1971. First paperback edition. A very good copy with light rubbing to the wraps, light age tanning to the edges of the text block and a couple of small previous owner name stamps - otherwise the contents are fine and unmarked.
