An Eighth Day View:

With originality and clarity, Harold Brown outlines first the logical
empiricist tradition and then the more historical and process-oriented
approach he calls the "new philosophy of science." Examining the two
together, he describes the very transition between them as an example
of the kind of change in historical tradition with which the new
philosophy of science concerns itself.
"I would recommend it to every historian of science and to every
philosopher of science. . . . I found it clear, readable, accurate,
cogent, insightful, perceptive, judicious, and full of original
ideas."
--Maurice A. Finocchiaro, "Isis"
"The best and most original aspect of the book is its overall
conception."
--Thomas S. Kuhn
Harold I. Brown is professor of philosophy at Northern Illinois
University.
