Cover for SUPPE: The Semantic Conception of Theories and Scientific Realism

The Semantic Conception of Theories and Scientific Realism

"An authoritative account of the semantic conception of theories by one of its chief developers. Suppe has always seen the semantic conception as providing a way of moving beyond empiricist philosophies of science. This book provides the definitive account of his views not only on the issue of realism, but also on a variety of other issues central to the philosophy of science."
-- Ronald N. Giere, author of Explaining Science: A Cognitive Approach
