From the Back Cover:

Scientific ideas change the way we think about the world and ourplace in it. Nicolaus Copernicus developed a heliocentric view ofthe cosmos that displaced humans from the physical center of theuniverse. Charles Darwin developed an evolutionary theory thatplaced humans firmly within the organismic order of nature. It wasSigmund Freud who saw himself as completing this cycle ofdisparagement by destroying the belief that humans were‘masters in their own house’.

Copernicus, Darwin and Freud: Revolutions in the History andPhilosophy of Science deals with issues in the area ofintersection between history and philosophy of natural and socialscience. Using Copernicanism, Darwinism and Freudianism as extendedcase studies, Friedel Weinert illustrates the profound connectionsbetween science and philosophy and shows how scientific theoriesinvariably have philosophical consequences. Philosophicalcontroversies surrounding ideas of human nature, realism andinstrumentalism, models and theories, laws of nature and scientificmethod are all examined within the context of concrete problemsituations in the history of science.

Copernicus, Darwin and Freud is an engaging and versatiletext suitable for a variety of courses in the history andphilosophy of science or for individual study.
