Critical Reasoning and Science: Looking at Science with an Investigative Eye (Paperback)

Usually despatched in 7-10 days.


Critical Reasoning and Science is an attempt to eliminate or at least diminish the feeling of estrangement that students may feel toward science. It is divided into three parts-a brief introduction to critical reasoning and science, a critical look at philosophical issues related to science, and a critical look at the practice of science. Overall, this work is unique in aim and functionality, as it is the first book to offer students a critical approach both to the philosophy and to the practice of science. Moreover, it aims to do so in a user-friendly manner by introducing material in short, digestible units (called "modules"). Each module has several history-of-science text boxes throughout as well as key terms, text questions, and text-box questions at its end. There are also ample practice exercises to test students on the material.
