An Introduction to the Philosophy of Science
This book is based mainly on lectures given at Stanford University during
the last eleven years. So the book is a distillation of lectures, but not only of lectures. It also
bears the inﬂuence of innumerable comments, questions, and papers by students over that time,
together with remarks made by col- leagues and friends.
The book is written primarily for students, but it is intended to be ac- cessible to a fairly wide
audience. I assume no background knowledge in philosophy at all in the reader. My primary aim is to
introduce some of the main themes in the philosophy of science, while simultaneously telling an
accessible and interesting story about how the ﬁeld has developed in the last one hundred years or
so. In telling this story I have been led to describe the connections between philosophy and other
disciplines, and the chang- ing intellectual climate in which theories of science have been
offered, in more detail than many introductory books do. I have also tried, in some places, to
capture some of the atmosphere of the debates, and the person-
alities of the protagonists.
