perspectivism in the philosophy of science. The book brings together an
array of essays that reflect on the methodological promises and scientific
challenges of perspectivism in a variety of fields such as physics, biology,
cognitive neuroscience, and cancer research, just for a few examples. What
are the advantages of using a plurality of perspectives in a given scientific field
and for interdisciplinary research? Can different perspectives be integrated?
What is the relation between perspectivism, pluralism, and pragmatism?
These ten new essays by top scholars in the field offer a kaleidoscopic
journey toward understanding the view called “perspectivism” and its
relevance to science. ER -
