Description
What is empiricism and what could it be? Bas C. van Fraassen, one of the world's foremost contributors to philosophical logic and the philosophy of science, here undertakes a fresh consideration of these questions and offers a program for renewal of the empiricist tradition. The empiricist tradition is t and could t be defined by common doctrines, but embodies a certain stance in philosophy, van Fraassen says. This stance is displayed first of all in a searing, recurrent critique of metaphysics, and second in a focus on experience that requires a voluntarist view of belief and opinion. Van Fraassen focuses on the philosophical problems of scientific and conceptual revolutions and on the t unrelated ruptures between religious and secular ways of seeing or conceiving of ourselves. He explores what it is to be or t be secular and points the way toward a new relationship between secularism and science within philosophy.

Author Biography

Bas van Fraassen is McCosh Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University (Emeritus after July 2008) and Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, San Francisco State University. His research interests straddle philosophical logic and philosophy of science, with special interests in empiricism,
(anti-)realism, probability, foundations of relativity and quantum physics, and philosophy of literature. Born in the Netherlands, he studied and taught in Canada and thereafter in the USA; he is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Science and of the Netherlands Royal Academy of Sciences.

Review

"Van Fraassen, the most influential empiricist of recent decades, combines a penetrating discussion of empiricism in science and philosophy with a sympathetic discussion of religion... An eloquent examination of empiricism and religion." Paul Thagard, Science; "An ambitious, absorbing, iconoclastic, metaphilosophical treatise." Richard Rotry, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews; "This work argues powerfully for a radical redirection of much contemporary thinking in epistemology and other important topics. It should force all of us to rethink the nature of analytic philosophy." Paul Teller, author of An Interpretive Introduction to Quantum Field Theory"
