Abstract

Readers of Bas van Fraassen’s previous work will find his newest book, Scientific Representation: Paradoxes of Perspective (2008), packed with many familiar theses, albeit defended in interesting new ways. Those interested in the debate between scientific realists and anti-realists, in particular, will find this a more satisfying sequel to his first book, The Scientific Image (1980), than any of his subsequent work.
