Quote

Advance praise: 'Steeped in the history of science and bursting with examples, this book turns a spotlight on the 'theoretical virtues' and their role in determining what the natural sciences reveal about our world. Fearlessly contesting received views of the import of novel predictions and the nature of ad hoc hypotheses, Schindler shows by example how general philosophy of science, and the history and philosophy of science, are indispensable to an understanding of scientific knowledge.' Anjan Chakravartty, University of Notre Dame, Indiana
