9780226051963: Philosophy of Pseudoscience: Reconsidering The Demarcation Problem
Críticas:

""Philosophy of Pseudoscience "is a remarkable contribution to one of the most vexing problems in science: the 'demarcation' problem, or how to distinguish science from nonscience. The well-designed diversity of topics and the collective breadth of knowledge of the authors make this book the most comprehensive and authoritative treatise on a majority of the traditional and current demarcation issues. . . . You have a jewel in your hands." --Francisco J. Ayala "University of California, Irvine "

Críticas:

"In Gary Larson's cartoon 'Scientist Hell, ' a smirking devil ushers an apprehensive man (beard, spectacles, white lab coat) into a room of nattering enthusiasts. The sign on the door reads, 'Psychics, Astrologists & Mediums Eternal Discussion Group.' If a similar room awaits philosophers, the present volume might come in handy."--Martin Curd, Purdue University "Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews "

Descripción The University of Chicago Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 228 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. What sets the practice of rigorously tested, sound science apart from pseudoscience? In this volume, the contributors seek to answer this question, known to philosophers of science as the demarcation problem. This issue has a long history in philosophy, stretching as far back as the early twentieth century and the work of Karl Popper. But by the late 1980s, scholars in the field began to treat the demarcation problem as impossible to solve and futile to ponder. However, the essays that Massimo Pigliucci and Maarten Boudry have assembled in this volume make a rousing case for the unequivocal importance of reflecting on the separation between pseudoscience and sound science. Moreover, the demarcation problem is not a purely theoretical dilemma of mere academic interest: it affects parents decisions to vaccinate children and governments willingness to adopt policies that prevent climate change. Pseudoscience often mimics science, using the superficial language and trappings of actual scientific research to seem more respectable. Even a well-informed public can be taken in by such questionable theories dressed up as science. Pseudoscientific beliefs compete with sound science on the health pages of newspapers for media coverage and in laboratories for research funding. Now more than ever the ability to separate genuine scientific findings from spurious ones is vital, and Philosophy of Pseudoscience provides ground for philosophers, sociologists, historians, and laypeople to make decisions about what science is or isn t.
