It also shows how this episode can shed light on current philosophical notions of scientific practice and how they in turn influence our understanding of the history of science. The book advances the current historical discussion of the Owen Huxley debate by making clear that Owen's anatomical claims had much more support than most historians and philosophers of science assume."--Jacket." ;
