“Continental philosophers in Britain and the United States have for the most part ignored the enormous contribution of continental philosophy to the philosophy of science, just as philosophers of science in Britain and the United States have done. Gary Gutting has long been a leading exponent of the importance of this contribution and his superb collection, with its many new translations, should go a long way toward turning the tide.” Robert Bernasconi, University of Memphis


“This masterful collection of original texts and expert commentary demonstrates Continental philosophers’ rich and diverse engagement with science, dispelling the notion that significant philosophical thinking about science is the sole prerogative of ‘analytic’ philosophers.” Daniel Dahlstrom, Boston University


“This book makes a welcome contribution to the secondary literature on the history and philosophy of modern science. Gary Gutting has assembled an impressive gallery of essays, which collectively advance a powerful, if relatively neglected, interpretation of the development of scientific method and practice. The pairing of influential historical figures with leading contemporary commentators is especially valuable.” Daniel W. Conway, The Pennsylvania State University
