The Cosmos Of Science

Essays of Exploration

Edited By John Earman
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.

The inaugural volume of the series, devoted to the work of philosopher Adolf Grünbaum, encompasses the philosophical problems of space, time, and cosmology, the nature of scientific methodology, and the foundations of psychoanalysis.
