Reviews

Advance praise: 'This book offers a masterful and comprehensive treatment of the metalogical concepts, distinctions and theorems with which modern philosophy of science is so heavily involved. Both students and professionals in the field can expect to learn much from Halvorson's patient and lucid exposition. Any serious student of general philosophy of science will want to refer to it repeatedly.'
