Synopsis: Eighteen original essays explore the far reaches of the several subdisciplines that the history and philosophy of science have spawned. The topics include Kepler's new astronomy, Isaac Newton on empirical success and scientific method, from constructive to predictive mathematics, Schr÷dinger's cat and other entanglements of quantum mechanics, deterministic chaos and the nature of chance, science without induction, action and autonomy, and explanations involving rationality. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Review: "The Cosmos of Science is an enjoyable, interesting and informative collection of essays. . . . of value to at least three groups of philosophers and historians of science. Experts in a given subdiscipline will find several essays informing them of some of the leading-edge work in their field. Non-experts will be able to see what is happening at the frontier of a variety of fields. Those scholars either searching for a new area of research or just beginning their work will be able to sample a variety of fields. . . . This is a book I will keep on my bookshelf. It not only informs me about my own area of research, it enlightens me about others." -- Allan Franklin, Meta Science
