about

Constructive empiricism is not just a view regarding the aim of science; it is also a view regarding the epistemological framework in which one should debate the aim of science. This is the focus of this book -- not with scientific truth, but with how one should argue about scientific truth.
PAUL DICKEN is a Junior Research Fellow in Philosophy at Churchill College, University of Cambridge, UK. He is an Affiliated Lecturer for the Faculty of Philosophy, Director of Studies in Philosophy at Pembroke College and Director of Studies in History and Philosophy of Science at Churchill College.
