Foresight and Understanding: An Inquiry into the Aims of Science

 
9780090604418: Foresight and Understanding: An Inquiry into the Aims of Science

What is the purpose of scientific endeavor? Is it to predict, to classify, to diagnose, to benefit technological progress? Stephen Toulmin maintains that it is more than these: "The central aims of science lie in the field of intellectual creation...other activities are probably called "scientific" from their connection with the explanatory ideas and ideals which are the heart of natural science."
