Introducing Philosophy Of Science

RRP $12.99

Compact INTRODUCING guide to the theory behind science

Our world is inconceivable without science. Its discoveries benefit us - antibiotics, computers, space travel, gene-mapping - and reveal the secrets of human evolution, the cosmos and our place in it. Science also threatens us with the risks of nuclear holocaust, eugenics and the pollution of our ecosystem. How do we reconcile the advantages of science with its perils? What do scientists actually do? Is science 'value-free'? How has science evolved through history? Where is science leading us?

Introducing Science explores these troubling questions, revealing how science itself and our approach to studying science has changed radically over the last few decades. Zia Sardar and Borin Van Loon trace the development of Philosophy of Science from the origins in the ideas of Thomas Kuhn, Karl Popper, Paul Feyerabend and others. Introducing Philosophy of Science is a clear and incisively illustrated anatomy of science. It is essential reading for students, ordinary citizens and scientists themselves.

Instruction Sequences For Computer Science

RRP $409.99

This book demonstrates that the concept of an instruction sequence offers a novel and useful viewpoint on issues relating to diverse subjects in computer science. Selected issues relating to well-known subjects from the theory of computation and the area of computer architecture are rigorously investigated in this book thinking in terms of instruction sequences. The subjects from the theory of computation, to wit the halting problem and non-uniform computational complexity, are usually investigated thinking in terms of a common model of computation such as Turing machines and Boolean circuits. The subjects from the area of computer architecture, to wit instruction sequence performance, instruction set architectures and remote instruction processing, are usually not investigated in a rigorous way at all.
