The Meaning of Science

  • €11.50


It's easy to think of science as a body of knowledge; a big library of facts that people in lab coats spend their careers adding to. But science is something more than that; it's a process, a way of looking at and questioning the world around you. This book is Tim Lewens' introduction to the philosophy of science, the attempt to answer questions about what science is, and what it's good for. By comparing the arguments of noted science philosophers Karl Popper and Thomas Kuhn, Lewens provides insight into what biology can teach us about humanity, what physics can teach us about reality, and what science as a field can say about truth.
