Includes readings from the following leading philosophers: Achinstein, Anderson, Bloor, Earman, Feyerabend, Gutting, Hanson, Hempel, Kitcher, Kuhn, Laudan, Leplin, Mackie, McMullin, Nagel, Popper, Quine, Rosenberg, Russell, Salmon, Schlick, Shapere, Van Fraassen.

Review:

"The essays in this collection, many of them modern classics, illuminate some of the most central and exciting issues in the subject. The editors have provided each cluster of readings with a helpful introduction, study questions and suggestions for further reading, making this volume an excellent way into the philosophy of science."
-Peter Lipton, University of Cambridge
"A remarkable collection with classic and modern selections."
-"Network
"The selections are appropriate both for the topics to be covered and for the intended audience. The entries are good, solid, important pieces that have directed the philosophy of science. The editor's introductions are clear and helpful. This makes a nice companion to "IPhilosophy of Science: A Contemporary Introduction ."
-Peter Kosso, North Arizona University
