Overview

Originally published as Scientific Research, this pair of volumes constitutes a fundamental treatise on the strategy of science. Part I of Philosophy of Science offers a preview of the scheme of science and the logical and semantical tools that will be used throughout the work. The account of scientific research begins with part II, where Bunge discusses formulating the problem to be solved, hypothesis, scientific law, and theory.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Bunge (U. of Montreal, Canada) describes each facet of the scientific method and demonstrates the continued relevance of this approach for advancing human knowledge. The first volume outlines the scientific approach, then details the first steps of the process<-->from recognition of a problem to its evolution into theory. Topics in volume two include: the application of theories to explanation, prediction, and action; measurement and experiment; the risks in jumping to conclusions from data to hypotheses (as well as the reverse procedure); and the philosophy of technology. The wide range of problems included make this an ideal text for undergraduate students in the natural and cultural sciences, and in philosophy. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
