Abstract

For more than two decades the philosopher of science David Hull has been involved with the community of biologists engaged in questions of taxonomical classification and evolution. In this book Hull uses this perspective to good advantage. By narrating the disputes, enmities, and alliances he has witnessed, he develops a theory of scientific change as a process operating according to a kind of natural selection of concepts.
