Observation and theory in science by Ernest Nagel( Book )

9 editions published between 1969 and 2019 in English and held by 32 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)
