Tim Lewens has a new book, The Meaning of Science (Basic Books) out now!


A philosopher of science examines the biggest ethical and moral issues in science today, and explains why they matter for all of us—scientist and layman alike.


"[An] excellent introduction to the philosophy of science-The Meaning of Science provides not only a compact and accessible survey of the philosophy of science as it used to be, but a glimpse of what it may become."
Literary Review


"[An] accessible and engaging introductory volume."
Publishers Weekly


"The Meaning of Science is a wonderful example of how a so-called introduction can in fact be a brilliant summation of all that matters."
Guardian, Best Books of 2015
