Summary: This collection of essays by a leading philosopher of science presents a defense of integrative pluralism as the best description for the complexity of scientific inquiry today. The tendency of some scientists to unify science by reducing all theories to a few fundamental laws of the most basic particles that populate our universe is ill-suited to the biological sciences, which study multicomponent, multilevel, evolved complex systems. This integrative pluralism is t morehe best way to understand the different and complex processes - historical and interactive - that generate biological phenomena.

This book will be of interest to students and professionals in the philosophy of science. less
