Unsimple truths science, complexity, and policy by Sandra D Mitchell( )
15 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 1,496 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
Biological complexity and integrative pluralism by Sandra D Mitchell( )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This integrative pluralism is the best way to understand the different and complex processes - historical and interactive - that generate biological phenomena." "This book will be of interest to students and professionals in the philosophy of science."--BOOK JACKET
Ceteris paribus laws ( Book )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 54 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

Human by nature : between biology and the social sciences by Peter Weingart( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Representing a wide range of disciplines -- biology, sociology, anthropology, economics, human ethology, psychology, primatology, history, and philosophy of science -- the contributors to this book recently spent a complete academic year at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) discussing a plethora of new insights in reference to human cultural evolution. These scholars acted as a living experiment of ""interdisciplinarity in vivo."" The assumption of this experiment was that the scholars -- while working and residing at the ZiF -- would be united intellectually as well as so
