The science of philosophy by F. H George( Book )

10 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1981, this book was an attempt to bridge the gap between scientists and philosophers by viewing philosophy, at least in part, through scientific eyes. Professor George is not here concerned with the philosophy of science. Rather he is looking at classical philosophical issues from the behavioural, or scientific, viewpoint. Thus, from the perspective of science, he attempts to establish an understanding of philosophy. The author intended it primarily for behavioural scientists, systems theorists and cyberneticians of the time who should have been closely bound up with the philosophical-scientific relationship
