Most widely held works by Alan Musgrave
Criticism and the growth of knowledge by Imre Lakatos( Book )

112 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in English and French and held by 1,411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two books have been particularly influential in contemporary philosophy of science: Karl R. Popper's Logic of Scientific Discovery, and Thomas S. Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions. Both agree upon the importance of revolutions in science, but differ about the role of criticism in science's revolutionary growth. This volume arose out of a symposium on Kuhn's work, with Popper in the chair, at an international colloquium held in London in 1965. The book begins with Kuhn's statement of his position followed by seven essays offering criticism and analysis, and finally by Kuhn's reply. The book will interest senior undergraduates and graduate students of the philosophy and history of science, as well as professional philosophers, philosophically inclined scientists, and some psychologists and sociologists

Rationality and reality : conversations with Alan Musgrave by Colin Cheyne( )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alan Musgrave has consistently defended two positions that he regards as commonsensical - critical realism and critical rationalism. This work discusses themes that are relevant in one way or another to Musgrave's work. It is intended as an examination of topics of interest in philosophy
Popper and the human sciences by Gregory Currie( Book )

12 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Sir Karl Popper's contributions to a number of diverse areas of philosophy are widely appreciated, serious criticism of his work has tended to focus on his philosophy of the natural sciences. This volume contains twelve critical essays on Popper's contribution to what we have called the 'human sciences', a category broad enough to include not only Popper's views on the methods of the social sciences but also his views on the relation of mind and body, Freud's psychology, and the status of cultural objects. Most of our contributors are philosophers whose own work stands outside the Popperian framework. We hope that this has resulted in a volume whose essays confront not merely the details of Popper's argu ments but also the very presuppositions of his thinking. With one exception, the essays appear here for the first time. The exception is L.J. Cohen's paper, which is a revised and considerably expanded ver sion of a paper first published in the British Journalfor the Philosophy of Science for June 1980. We would like to thank Loraine Hawkins and Jane Hogg for their editorial assistance and June O'Donnell for typing various manuscripts and all the correspondence which a volume of essays entails

Secular sermons : essays on science and philosophy by Alan Musgrave( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can we decide what to believe? Why do scientists do experiments and what can their experiments show? Is evolution a scientific theory? Such apparently simple questions are investigated by Musgrave in order to interrogate the worldviews we inhabit - and their consequences. He brings to these questions an expansive historical knowledge, provoking his readers to enter the now-discredited belief-systems of earlier ages in order to compare these with our own."--Jacket
