The Handbook is the most extensive examination ever published of philosophical issues in the sciences, both basic and applied. As the major reference work in the field, the Handbook of the Philosophy of Science will be essential reading for researchers in all branches of the philosophy of science, as well as graduate students and senior undergraduates. It should also draw a large readership of scientists and their students who are interested in methodological issues that arise in their fields.
