about

The philosophy of the humanistic sciences has been a blind-spot in analytic philosophy. This book argues that by adopting an appropriate pragmatic analysis of explanation and interpretation it is possible to show that scientific practice of humanistic sciences can be understood on similar lines to scientific practice of natural and social sciences.
JAN FAYE Professor of the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. He has written and edited a number of books in the areas of philosophy of science and metaphysics. Among the English books published areThe Reality of the Future(1989);Niels Bohr: His Heritage and Legacy(1991); andRethinking Science(2002).
