Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twenty penetrating essays explore and debate the limits of scientific inquiry.

Book News Annotation:

A collection of 20 essays by prominent philosophers and historians who explore and debate limits of scientific inquiry and their consequences for science in the 21st century. Constraints are addressed that are relevant for the whole of science, and possible limitations of specific branches of science are considered. Subjects discussed include reconciling scientific realism with unending progress, limits to self-observation, and models of error and limits of experimental testing. Most essays are followed by replies and comments. Carrier teaches philosophy at the University of Bielefeld. Material originated at an October 1997 meeting.
