Abstract

Sensationalism and Scientific Explanation is a critical examination of the view that scientific statements can be understood only in terms of basic 'atoms' of experience, also called 'sensations'. Presenting different extremes of this view, the book considers whether it can provide an adequate account of science as we find it. It explores in detail the sensationalist account of science set out by Ernst Mach in relation to various aspects of scientific investigation and theorizing, and puts forward an argument for the 'inherent weakness of sensationalism'. Sensationalism and Scientific Explanation will appeal to those with an interest in the history and philosophy of science.
