Description

This work fights back against figures such as Richard Rorty, Bruno Latour, Michael Ruse and Hilary Putnam who have attacked realist accounts of science. The second part argues that there are some amazing ways in which science mirrors the world. The role of abstraction, abstract objects and "a priori" ways of getting at reality are all explored in showing how science reflects reality. In addition to defending this particular way of understanding science, the text is a defence of science and knowledge in general and should interest those who wish or need to know how science works.
