Some Reflections on German Science
German Science and German Virtues

Pierre Duhem

Translated from the French by John Lyon
Introduction by Stanley L. Jaki

Philosopher, physicist, historian, devout Catholic and patriotic Frenchman, Pierre Duhem (1861-1916) is a major influence in twentieth-century thought, a source for key ideas of the Vienna Circle, Karl Popper, and Thomas S. Kuhn. German Science is here translated into English for the first time, along with two shorter Duhem works on the same theme. These vigorously polemical writings well illustrate Duhem's conviction that the insights of common sense are vital for the valid apprehension of reality.
