This book explains the progress of ideas in science. The author tries to answer fundamental questions like "What is science?" and in his journey mentions different philosophers who gave answer to these basic question. The book contains information about Kuhn,Popper, the Empiricist etc.
It's a must read for anyone who wants a basic and comprehensive introduction to this topic.

The author has given an easy to read, short work on the philosophy of science, but his science is not good. For instance, describing the discoverry of Uranus as a "failure of Newtonian Mechanics" is wrong. It was a triumph of Newtonian MechanicsWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
