Description

Scientific realists claim that the unobservable entities postulated by scientific theories can be known to exist. Andre Kukla here examines the arguments on both sides of the issue and concludes that neither side possesses the conceptual resources for securing a victory. He asserts that the dispute is irreconcilable - a conclusion that has broad epistemological consequences.show more

Review quote

Clearly written, well-organized and meticulously argued ... Studies in Scientific Realism is essential reading for any research student interested in the realism debate in science as that debate has evolved over the last generation, and for those scientific or philosophical professionals who think the matter was somehow settled in the course of that debate. Kukla does a masterful job of showing why it wasn't. * The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science *show more
