Maureen Christie (au). This volume provides the first thorough & accessible history of stratospheric ozone, from the discovery of ozone in the 19th century to current investigations of the Antarctic ozone hole. Drawing directly on the extensive scientific literature, Maureen Christie, Lecturer in Philosophy of Science at the Univ. of Melbourne, Australia, uses the story of ozone as a case study for examining fundamental issues relating to the collection & evaluation of evidence, the conduct of scientific debate & the construction of scientific consensus. By linking debates in the philosophy of science to an example of real-world science, she not only provides an excellent introduction to the philosophy of science but also challenges many of its preconceptions.
