Science and Selection: Essays on Biological Evolution and the Philosophy of Science
David L. Hull (au)
One way to understand science is as a selection process. Hull sets out 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. Hull aims to distinguish those characteristics that are contingent features of selection from those that are essential. Part 1 focuses on selection in biological evolution. Part 2 contains essays that treat science itself as a selection process. In Part 3, Hull examines the testing of our views about science, arguing that if testing plays such a crucial role in other areas of science, then it must play the same role in the study of science. Brings together many of Hull’s most important essays on selection in one volume.
