The History and Philosophy of Science: A Reader (Bloomsbury Academic, 2018) is for students looking to better understand the origins of natural science. Edited by Associate Professor of Philosophy Daniel McKaughan and Associate Professor of the Practice of Philosophy Holly VandeWall, The History and Philosophy of Science brings together seminal texts on astronomy, physics, chemistry, and the life sciences from antiquity to the end of the 19th century and makes them accessible in one volume for the first time. Grouped by topic to clarify the development of methods and disciplines and the unification of theories, The History and Philosophy of Science will enable readers to interpret and critically engage with central problems and ideas from the history and philosophy of science and understand and evaluate scientific material found in a wide variety of professional and popular settings. The editors talked about the book in a video from BC Libraries.
