Though the publication of Kuhn's Structure of Scientific
Revolutions seemed to herald the advent of a unified study of the
history and philosophy of science, it is a hard fact that history
of science and philosophy of science have increasingly grown apart.
Recently, however, there has been a series of workshops on both
sides of the Atlantic (called '&HPS') intended to bring
historians and philosophers of science together to discuss new
integrative approaches. This is therefore an especially appropriate
time to explore the problems with and prospects for integrating
history and philosophy of science. The original essays in this
volume, all from specialists in the history of science or
philosophy of science, offer such an exploration from a wide
variety of perspectives. The volume combines general reflections on
the current state of history and philosophy of science with studies
of the relation between the two disciplines in specific historical
and scientific cases.
