"SCIENCE, TRUTH, & DEMOCRACY is an outstandingly good book; it flashes with the steel of reason. It is, however, highly condensed, and not always easy to take in at a single reading. Sometimes the dialectic is a little oversprung, and one is unsure where on is in the exchange of point and counterpoint. But Kitcher has almost perfect aim when it comes to what really matters. The book as a whole is a remarkable illustration of the sheer force of thought, the conceptual firepower, conferred by successful training in philosophy."Kitcher, Philip is the author of 'Science, Truth, and Democracy', published 2003 under ISBN 9780195165524 and ISBN 0195165527.
