Giere argues for a reconciliation between history of science and philosophy of science on the grounds that philosophy of science must become theory of science, that is, a naturalized theory of how science works. Normative claims about how science should work can flow from a descriptive understanding of how it does work. Giere believes that such a theory of science can emerge from melding cognitive science with sociology of science.
