Observation and theory in science by Ernest Nagel( Book )

16 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three lectures, presented as the first series of the Alvin and Fanny Blaustein Thalheimer Lectures, concern the logical status of scientific theories in relation to observation. Nagel analyzes some of the attacks on the observational-theoretical distinction, and proposes that the proper way of construing the observational-theoretical contrast is in terms of the way statements actually function within the context of scientific inquiry. Bromberger feels that the essentially formalistic view of theories is "essentially bankrupt" and sketches a possible alternative approach to the analysis of scientific theories in terms of questions raised and of the logical dimensions of possible answers to these questions. In the final lecture Grunbaum discusses Duhem's thesis that it is impossible to test scientific theories by crucial experiments and seeks to present counterexamples to Feyerabend's claim concerning the manner in which terms are "theory laden." Barker's introduction provides an overview of the place of the three lectures in terms of trends in the philosophy of science, and Mandelbaum gives a brief biography of Dr. And Mrs. Thalheimer. (Al)
Geometry and chronometry in philosophical perspective by Adolf Grünbaum( Book )

16 editions published between 1968 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume Professor Grünbaum substantially extends and comments upon his essay "Geometry, Chronometry, and Empiricism," which was first published in Volume III of the Minnesota Studies in the Philosophy of Science. Commenting on the essay when it first appeared J.J.C. Smart wrote in Mind (England): "In my opinion Adolf Grünbaum's paper ... supersedes nearly all that has been written on the logical status of physical geometry and chronometry."
Validation in the clinical theory of psychoanalysis : a study in the philosophy of psychoanalysis by Adolf Grünbaum( Book )

14 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Validation in the Clinical Theory of Psycho-analysis: A Study in the Philosophy of Psycho-analysis contains Adolf Grunbaum's new basic critique of the psychoanalytic theory of transference in its role of an etiologic theory; it turns out that etiologic transference interpretations rest on fallacious causal inferences from so-called "meaning connections" between mental states: moreover, just these unsound inferences are the stock-in-trade of the "hermeneutic" reconstruction of psychoanalysis, which charges Freud with a "scientistic self-misunderstanding."
The Limitations of deductivism( Book )

12 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physics, philosophy, and psychoanalysis : essays in honor of Adolf Grünbaum by R. S Cohen( Book )

10 editions published between 1983 and 1992 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To celebrate Adolf Griinbaum's sixtieth birthday by offering him this bouquet of essays written for this purpose was the happy task of an autonomous Editorial Committee: Wesley C. Salmon, Nicholas Rescher, Larry Laudan, Carl G. Hempel, and Robert S. Cohen. To present the book within the Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science was altogether fitting and natural, for Griinbaum has' been friend and supporter of philosophy of science at Boston University for twenty-five years, and unofficial godfather to the Boston Colloquium. To regret that we could not include contributions from all his well-wishers, critical admirers and admiring critics, is only to regret that we did not have an encyclopedic space at the committee's disposal. But we, and all involved in this book, speak for all the others in the philo sophical, scientific, and personal worlds of Adolf Griinbaum in greeting him on May 15, 1983, with our wishes for his health, his scholarship, his happiness. Our gratitude is due to Carolyn Fawcett for her care and accuracy in editing this book, and for the preparation of the Index; and to Elizabeth McMunn for her help again and again, especially in preparation of the Bibliography of the Published Writings of Adolf Griinbaum; and to Thelma Griinbaum for encouraging, planning, and cheering.

Collected works by Adolf Grünbaum( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays collected in this first volume focus on three related areas. They discuss scientific rationality-the problem of what it takes for a theory to be called scientific, and ask whether it is plausible to draw a clear distinction between science and non-science as was famously proposed by Karl Popper. They delve into the debate between determinism and indeterminism, in both science and in the humanities. Grunbaum defends the position of the Humane Determinist, which then leads to a thorough criticism of the current theological approaches to ethics and morality-where Grunbaum defends an explicit Secular Humanism-as well as of prominent theistic interpretations of twentieth century physical cosmologies."--

Collected works by Adolf Grünbaum( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects Adolf Grunbaum's most discussed essays on scientific rationality. It covers the problem of what it takes for a theory to be called scientific and asks whether it is plausible to draw a clear distinction between science and non-science. It also delves into the debate between determinism and indeterminism both in science and in the humanities, and defends the position of the human determinist. This then leads to a thorough criticism of the current theological approaches to ethics and morality, where Grunbaum defends an explicit secular humanism, as well as to a detailed critique of the prominent theistic interpretations of twentieth century physical cosmologies
