About this product
- DescriptionWhat can come of a scientific engagement with postmodern philosophy? Some scientists have claimed that the social sciences and humanities have thing to contribute, except perhaps peripherally, to their research. Dorothea E. Olkowski shows that the historic link between science and philosophy, mathematics itself, plays a fundamental role in the development of the worldviews that drive both fields. Focusing on language, its expression of worldview and usage, she develops a phemelogical account of human thought and action to explicate the role of philosophy in the sciences. Olkowski proposes a model of phemelogy, both scientific and philosophical, that helps make sense of reality and composes an ethics for dealing with unpredictability in our world.
