Biological complexity and integrative pluralism by Sandra D Mitchell( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays by a leading philosopher of science presents a defense of integrative pluralism as the best description for the complexity of scientific inquiry today. The tendency of some scientists to unify science by reducing all theories to a few fundamental laws of the most basic particles that populate our universe is ill-suited to the biological sciences, which study multicomponent, multilevel, evolved complex systems
Unsimple truths : science, complexity, and policy by Sandra D Mitchell( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mitchell draws from diverse fields including psychiatry, social insect biology, and studies of climate change to defend "integrative pluralism" - a theory of scientific practices that makes sense of how many natural and social sciences represent the multi-level, multi-component, dynamic structures they study. She explains how we must, in light of the now-acknowledged complexity and contingency of biological and social systems, revise how we conceptualize the world, how we investigate the world, and how we act in the world. Ultimately Unsimple Truths argues that the very idea of what should count as legitimate science itself should change."--BOOK JACKET
Komplexitäten : warum wir erst anfangen, die Welt zu verstehen by Sandra Mitchell( Book )

Ceteris paribus laws by John Earman( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Natural and social sciences seem very often, though usually only implicitly, to hedge their laws by ceteris paribus clauses - a practice which is philosophically very hard to understand because such clauses seem to render the laws trivial and unfalsifiable. After early worries the issue is vigorously discussed in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mind since ca. 15 years. This volume collects the most prominent philosophers of science in the field and presents a lively, controversial, but well-integrated, highly original and up-to-date discussion of the issue. It will be the reference book in the coming years concerning ceteris paribus laws
