Psillos (Scientific Realism) and Curd (Principles of Reasoning) have amassed essays by 58 internationally dispersed integrative science and philosophy scholars. Divided into four parts, the book's multipage essays discuss historical and philosophical contexts, explain debates surrounding various isms, unpack broad philoscientific concepts like causation, and survey individual areas that employ scientific approaches, including economics and mathematics. While filled with allusions and field-specific language not accessible to uninitiated readers, the essays illuminate more abstruse philosophical tracts and make carefully measured connections between the higher realms of science and the actual world. Highly recommended for history of science and philosophy collections.
