9780521078269: Criticism and the Growth of Knowledge

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.

Book Description:

"An important collection of significant papers." American Scientist

From the Back Cover:

This fourth volume follows the editorial policy pursued in the first three volumes: it is a rational reconstruction and expansion rather than a faithful report of the actual discussion. The whole volume arises from one symposium, the one held on 13 July on Criticism and the Growth of Knowledge.
