Realism Rescued: How Scientific Progress Is Possible
Realism Rescued How Scientific Progress Is Possible Author:Jerrold L. Aronson, Rom Harre, Eileen Cornell Way This text presents a defence of scientific realism against sceptical and positivist attacks. It relies on the importance of models in scientific work. Using the "type hierarchy", a technique of knowledge representation drawn from artificial intelligence, it provides an account of these models.
