en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 20 Feb 2003
Exploring the central ideas of traditional metaphysics--such as the simplicity of nature, its comprehensibility, or its systematic integrity--this book analyzes looking at such notions from a scientific point of view. It seeks to describe in a clear, accessible manner the metaphysical situation that characterizes the process of inquiry in natural science, aiming to shed light on reality by examining the modus operandi of natural science itself and focusing as much on its findings as on its conceptual and methodological presuppositions. Written by an eminent scholar of philosophy, this book is the culmination of many years of penetrating work. It is the definitive presentation of some of Nicholas Rescher's most fascinating ideas and is an engaging source for philosophers and non-philosophers alike.

Notă biografică

Nicholas Rescher is University Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh. Author of more than eighty works ranging over many areas of philosophy, he was awarded the Alexander von Humboldt Prize for Humanistic Scholarship in 1984.


This is a short book, but it goes very deep.
Nature and Understanding is a valuable book. The number and range of topics benefiting from Rescher's wisdom is enormous. The book is eminently readable (Rescher knows how to write a good sentence) ... I recommend this book without hesitation to anyone interested in philosophy of science, metaphysics, and epistemology
Rescher's latest offering is devoted to some of the most interesting and important issues in philosophy of science.
