Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This Companion to the philosophy of science reflects fairly well the gloomy state of affairs in this subfield at its best-concerns, problems, prejudices, and all. The field is still stuck with the problem of justification of science, refusing to admit that there is neither need nor possibility to justify science and forbid dissent from it.
