Studies in the Philosophy of Science by Nicholas Rescher
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Since Rescher's earliest publication of the middle 1950's in this field, the philosophy of science has constituted one focus of his interest and preoccupation. Some dozen of Rescher's contributions to the field are published in the present volume, and they combine to convey his favoured way of blending empirical data with philosophical theorising.
