Abstract

This book provides both an extended biographical treatment of Norwood Russell Hanson, and a nuanced and historical approach to his central philosophical concerns. These included the relation of theory to observation, normative and descriptive analysis of science, objectivity, and the logic of discovery. Hanson is noted for his attempts to turn the history and philosophy of science into an integrated field.
