Representation and Invariance of Scientific Structures (CSLI Lecture Notes)

Representation and Invariance of Scientific Structures (CSLI Lecture Notes) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fundamental reason for using formal methods in the philosophy of science is the desirability of having a fixed frame of reference that may be used to organize the variety of doctrines at hand. This book—Patrick Suppes's major work, and the result of several decades of research—examines how set-theoretical methods provide such a framework, covering issues of axiomatic method, representation, invariance, probability, mechanics, and language, including research on brain-wave representations of words and sentences. This is a groundbreaking, essential text from a distinguished philosopher.
