About the Author:

Brendan Larvor is Lecturer of Philosophy at University of Oxford.


"This is a gem of a book. In 110 pages of text, Larvor gives us a lucid, systemmatic, and original analysis and criticism of Lakatos's writings."
-"Teaching Philosophy, March 2000
"A proper appreciation of Lakatos's unique contribution to both the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mathematics is long overdue. Larvor's work is a perceptive study, and it can only be hoped that it will lead to a better understanding of the importance of Lakatos's thinking about the development and appraisal of his theories."
-George S. Botterill
""Lakatos: An Introduction is very well written. The style is clean and economical, not cluttered by jargon, and flows well. I would use this as a text in an undergraduate course as well as in a graduate level course."
-Mary Tiles, University of Hawaii at Manoa
