Observation and theory in science by Ernest Nagel( Book )

16 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three lectures, presented as the first series of the Alvin and Fanny Blaustein Thalheimer Lectures, concern the logical status of scientific theories in relation to observation. Nagel analyzes some of the attacks on the observational-theoretical distinction, and proposes that the proper way of construing the observational-theoretical contrast is in terms of the way statements actually function within the context of scientific inquiry. Bromberger feels that the essentially formalistic view of theories is "essentially bankrupt" and sketches a possible alternative approach to the analysis of scientific theories in terms of questions raised and of the logical dimensions of possible answers to these questions. In the final lecture Grunbaum discusses Duhem's thesis that it is impossible to test scientific theories by crucial experiments and seeks to present counterexamples to Feyerabend's claim concerning the manner in which terms are "theory laden." Barker's introduction provides an overview of the place of the three lectures in terms of trends in the philosophy of science, and Mandelbaum gives a brief biography of Dr. And Mrs. Thalheimer. (Al)

16 editions published between 1968 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume Professor Grünbaum substantially extends and comments upon his essay "Geometry, Chronometry, and Empiricism," which was first published in Volume III of the Minnesota Studies in the Philosophy of Science. Commenting on the essay when it first appeared J.J.C. Smart wrote in Mind (England): "In my opinion Adolf Grünbaum's paper ... supersedes nearly all that has been written on the logical status of physical geometry and chronometry."
Validation in the clinical theory of psychoanalysis : a study in the philosophy of psychoanalysis by Adolf Grünbaum( Book )

13 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Well over one half of this brilliant new Monograph constitutes a major sequel to Professor Grunbaum's highly influential 1984 book The Foundations of Psychoanalysis: A Philosophical Critique, which was labeled "magisterial" by Frank J. Sulloway, and "the most important book ever written on Freud's status as a scientist" by J. Allan Hobson. The importance of the present Monograph lies in the extent to which the author now goes beyond that earlier volume to offer new original ideas on fundamental themes

Collected works by Adolf Grünbaum( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays collected in this first volume focus on three related areas. They discuss scientific rationality-the problem of what it takes for a theory to be called scientific, and ask whether it is plausible to draw a clear distinction between science and non-science as was famously proposed by Karl Popper. They delve into the debate between determinism and indeterminism, in both science and in the humanities. Grunbaum defends the position of the Humane Determinist, which then leads to a thorough criticism of the current theological approaches to ethics and morality-where Grunbaum defends an explicit Secular Humanism-as well as of prominent theistic interpretations of twentieth century physical cosmologies."--

Collected works by Adolf Grünbaum( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects Adolf Grünbaum's most discussed essays on scientific rationality. It covers the problem of what it takes for a theory to be called scientific and asks whether it is plausible to draw a clear distinction between science and non-science. It also delves into the debate between determinism and indeterminism both in science and in the humanities, and defends the position of the human determinist. This then leads to a thorough criticism of the current theological approaches to ethics and morality, where Grünbaum defends an explicit secular humanism, as well as to a detailed critique of the prominent theistic interpretations of twentieth century physical cosmologies
