One way to understand science is as a selection process. David Hull, one of the dominant figures in contemporary philosophy of science, sets out in this volume a general analysis of this selection process that applies equally to biological evolution, the reaction of the immune system to antigens, operant learning, and social and conceptual change in science.
'This volume is one of the best collections of papers I have read in a long time.' International Studies in the Philosophy of Science 'All the papers collected here exemplify Hull's direct and clear-headed approach to philosophy. The papers include refinements to Hull's views in response to critics, some new theoretical developments and some new examples ! Hull makes interesting and productive suggestions for how to start work in some of these areas.' Biology and Philosophy
