about this item

The book deals with how scientists, especially cognitive neuroscientists, explain phenomena. It systematically analyzes different kinds of experiments performed throughout the discovery process. Against this background, it evaluates contemporary accounts of scientific explanation and supplements them with a new taxonomy of experiments. This marks the beginning of a new era in philosophy of science that takes experimental practice at face value.
