An exceptional writer, Norwood Russell Hanson writes very potent text that serves as a preliminary guide to some of the most prominent considerations in philosophy of science. These topics include observation, facts, measurement, induction, experiment, causality, explanation, theories, laws, hypthetico-deduction, retroduction, theoretical entities, Craig’s Theorem, verification, falsification, and models. I recommend this to any general student of philosophy who has not encountered a course or book on philosophy of science. There are even elements of this book that will be of use to those fairly well versed in philosophy of science, not having had exposure to Hanson’s philosophy of science. In particular, I highly recommend looking at the sections on observation, facts, retroduction, and Craig’s theorem, a total 25 of the 84 pages.

This extremely dense text reads considerably more easily, depending upon the amount of prior reading in philosophy and exposure to science. I do recommend that someone have read quite a bit of philosophy and be somewhat aware of scientific practice before reading this text. I think Hanson’s project, in writing this book, was to serve those philosophers at the undergraduate level (second or third year) who has studied some first-year science (biology, chemistry, physics, etc.). Certainly, the content included is not technical in this book, so anyone stands a chance of understanding it, but it will be a challenge to those without the proper background.

This book is definitely not for the typical high school student or layperson; undergrads and at-large intellectuals will gain much from it. In general, it’s a great book, on the basis of its brevity, potency, and clarity of thought.
