    One thought on “An Introduction to the Philosophy of Science”

    1. I really liked this book because not only it is rather simple but also it is inspiring and kind of answers to many "why"s.

    2. An introduction to many issues in the philosophy of science which is both engaging and as rigorous as needs be. Make sure to check out the chapter on the Magical View of Language - a thoroughly under-explored philosophical concept which Carnap introduces in this book.

    3. Fantastic book on philosophy of science!It's a book purely on the theory but not on the history of philosophy, many people write "introduction" books just as a history book, because they are not that professional in that field.

    4. كتاب اكتر من ممتاز لكن اعتقد ان الترجمة مش على نفس مستوى الكتاب
