A survey of the philosophy of science from positivism to social constr uctivism, this book focuses on the ontological implications of science . An innovative feature is the author's use of immunology as a source of descriptive examples, thus providing lively illustrations from a li fe science with universal appeal and allowing continuity throughout th is volume. The coverage of Quinean holism and supervenience clarify co ncepts which have been often misunderstood, while the discussion of th e Kuhnian model of science rectifies the distortions it underwent due to misuse in the past. Feminist and nonfeminist concepts of science, a s well as social constructivist models are thoroughly investigated by Klee. The book is lavishly illustrated and includes a glossary definin g over eighty key terms.
