Philosophy of Science: A New Introduction, OUP USA, 2013, 2013


Offering an engaging and accessible portrait of the current state of the field, Philosophy of
Science: A New Introduction shows students how to think philosophically about science and why it
is both essential and fascinating to do so. Gillian Barker and Philip Kitcher reconsider the core
questions in philosophy of science in light of the multitude of changes that have taken place in the
decades since the publication of C.G. Hempel's classic work, Philosophy of Natural Science
(1966)—both in the field and also in history and sociology of science and the sciences
themselves. They explore how philosophical questions are connected to vigorous current
debates—including climate change, science and religion, race, intellectual property rights, and
medical research priorities—showing how these questions, and philosophers' attempts to answer
them, matter in the real world. Featuring numerous illustrative examples and extensive further
reading lists, Philosophy of Science: A New Introduction is ideal for courses in philosophy of
science, history and philosophy of science, and epistemology/theory of knowledge. It is also
compelling and illuminating reading for scientists, science students, and anyone interested in the
natural sciences and in their place in global society today.
