Understanding inconsistent science by Peter Vickers( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Vickers examines 'inconsistent theories' in the history of science - theories which, though contradictory, are held to be extremely useful. He argues that these 'theories' are actually significantly different entities, and warns that the traditional goal of philosophy to make substantial, general claims about how science works is misguided
