Smoke and Mirrors: How Science Reflects Reality



Routledge | 1994-03-15 | ISBN: 0415091810 | 200 pages | PDF | 1,1 Mb

In Smoke and Mirrors, James Robert Brown fights back against figures such as Richard Rorty, Bruno Latour, Michael Ruse and Hilary Putnam who have attacked realistic accounts of science. This enlightening work also demonstrates that science mirrors the world in amazing ways. The metaphysics and epistemology of science, the role of abstraction, abstract objects, and a priori ways of getting at reality are all examined in this fascinating exploration of how science reflects reality.

Both a defense of science and knowledge in general and a defense of a particular way of understanding science, Smoke and Mirrors will be provocative and lively reading for all those who have an interest in how science works.
