About this product
- DescriptionBas C. van Fraassen presents an original exploration of how we represent the world. He investigates the nature of representation in both science and art; he defends a distinctive position in contemporary philosophy of science; and he illuminates the complex relationship between appearance and reality.
- Author BiographyBas van Fraassen is McCosh Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University and Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at San Francisco State University. His research interests straddle philosophical logic and philosophy of science, with special interests in empiricism, (anti-)realism, probability, foundations of relativity and quantum physics, and philosophy of literature. Born in the Netherlands, he studied and taught in Canada and thereafter in the USA; he is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Science and of the Netherlands Royal Academy of Sciences. Though concentrating on philosophy of science he makes occasional forays into philosophy of literature and the connections between art, literature, and science.
