On Philosophizing—and Some Logical Distinctions

Matthew D. Lund

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Historians of science are more than mere chroniclers. They are not content only to construct a master record of what happened and when—of discoveries, inventions, and scientific personalities, of birthdays and family connections. True, many books on the history of some science read as if the author were designing a kind of periodic table or a calendar or a genealogical tree of the events which have made the science what it is. But this is to history of science at its best as bird watching is to genetic theory.
