Reviews

"A devastating attack on the claims of philosophy to legislate for scientific practice."--New Society

"A brilliant polemic."--New Scientist

"Since it was first published in 1975, Against Method has followed Popper's The Logic of Scientific Discovery and Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions into becoming a classic text in the debate about scientific methodology and scientific reasoning."--The Philosopher

"A powerful critique."--London Review of Books

"Against Method is more than a book: it is an event."--Archives de Philosophie
