Search - List of Books by David Stove

David Charles Stove (15 September 1927 - 2 June 1994), was an Australian philosopher of science.

His work in philosophy of science included detailed criticisms of David Hume's inductive skepticism, as well as what he regarded as the irrationalism of his disciplinary contemporaries Karl Popper, Thomas Kuhn, Imre Lakatos, and Paul Feyerabend. Also, he marshalled a positive response to the problem of induction in his 1986 work, The Rationality of Induction.

Stove was also a staunch critic of sociobiology, going as far as describing the field as a new religion in which genes play the role of gods.[1]
