Science in the Looking Glass

What Do Scientists Really Know?

E. Brian Davies

  • Makes important issues in the philosophy and history of science easily accessible.
  • Uses historical examples, stories, and quotations to illustrate the ideas.
  • Confronts widely held perceptions of science.
  • Engages in debate with Roger Penrose's books.
  • Argues that mathematics was invented rather than discovered.
  • Disentangles those aspects of evolution which are fact from those which are aspirations.
