General Philosophy of Science

Edited by Howard Sankey (University of Melbourne) About this topic Summary In contrast with the philosophy of a specific area of science (e.g. philosophy of physics, philosophy of biology), the general philosophy of science deals with questions that span the sciences.  The main questions in this area have been the broad question of the nature and justification of the scientific method, as well as questions about the nature of scientific theory change.  The nature and structure of scientific explanation, as well as the nature and status of scientific laws have also been central questions.  The debate between scientific realist and anti-realist approaches to science is also a topic in general philosophy of science.
