"This revised and extended edition offers a concise and illuminating treatment of major developments in the field over the last two decades, with the same accessible style which ensured the popularity of previous editions. Of particular importance is the examination of Bayesianism and the new experimentalism, as well as new chapters on the nature of scientific laws and recent trends in the realism versus anti-realism debate."--BOOK JACKET

Wege der Wissenschaft : Einführung in die Wissenschaftstheorie by A. F Chalmers ( Book )

Chalmers kritische Reflexion über wissenschaftstheoretische Schulen ist zu einem Standardwerk universitärer Lehre avanciert, das inzwischen in über 15 Sprachen übersetzt wurde. Seine Popularität verdankt das Buch der Tatsache, dass es Chalmers gelingt, die komplexe Thematik in eine auch für Laien verständliche Form zu bringen und mit zahlreichen Beispielen zu illustrieren. Chalmers bietet nicht nur einen hervorragenden Überblick über klassische Ansätze der Wissenschaftstheorie, den Induktivismus, den kritischen Rationalismus sowie den Falsifikationismus und stellt die Theorien von K. Popper, I. Lakatos, Th. Kuhn und P. Feyerabend vor, sondern geht auch auf aktuelle wissenschaftstheoretische Entwicklungen ein. Sein besonderes Augenmerk gilt dabei der Bedeutung des Experiments und dem "Neuen Experimentalismus", dem wahrscheinlichkeitstheoretischen Ansatz von Th. Bayes, dem Wesen naturwissenschaftlicher Gesetze und der aktuellen "Realismus versus Anti-Realismus-Debatte"
