Discourse on a New Method

Reinvigorating the Marriage of History and Philosophy of Science

Edited by Mary Domski and Michael Dickson

This volume of twenty-six essays by leading intellectuals introduces, charts, and criticizes the highly original and influential work of philosopher Michael Friedman. While addressing a range of topics from Isaac Newton to Post-Kuhnian philosophy of science, this volume critically examines themes that have been central to Friedman's work. Special focus is given to Friedman's illuminating respect for both history of science and philosophy in his work on Kant, Newton, Einstein, and other major figures. This interaction of history and philosophy is the subject of the editors' "manifesto" and serves to both explain and promote the essential ties between these usually disconnected disciplines.
