Philosophy of science and history of science are both interpretations of scientific practice, and the relationship between these two disciplines can take various forms: they may be mutually exclusive, interdependent, or related by inclusion. Much depends on whether philosophy of science is taken to be a prescriptive or a descriptive science. This book is concerned with the nature of the relationship between philosophy of science and history of science, and sheds new light on our understanding of those activities that comprise science.

"Valuable for its lucid discussion of the intricate problem of the relationship between history and philosophy of science. Students will welcome the synoptic accounts of the 'positions' of several major philosophers of science, both ancient and modern."--Isis
