Summary

First published in 1996, Science as a Questioning Process offers an intriguing mix of science and philosophy by examining science as a questioning process. The book evaluates scientific theories through from Darwinian evolution to relativity, and from quantum theory to cosmology. It offers an examination of these theories, in terms of a trade-off between empirical questions resolved and theoretical questions left unresolved. The book asks questions that deal with both intellectual and public concern about what science tells us and how reliable it is. Through this novel perspective, the book examines science in the context of everyday culture and the role it plays in everyday life. This book will be of interest to anyone working in the fields of philosophy, sociology and science.
