Soll Wissenschaftstheorie die Realwissenschaften lediglich korrekt beschreiben oder darf sie sie mit Imperativen traktieren und Normen aufstellen? Deskriptive Wissenschaftstheorien, welche die erstgenannte Option vertreten, haben Konjunktur. Muss das Projekt 'normative Wissenschaftstheorie' verabschiedet werden? In diesem Sammelband soll die skizzierte Kontroverse geführt werden. Dabei wird der Versuch unternommen, bisher oft verselbständigt und isoliert verlaufende Diskurse zwischen kritisch-rationalen, analytischen und konstruktivistischen Wissenschaftstheoretikern zusammenzuführen.

Philip Kitcher is one of the leading figures in the philosophy of science today. Here he collects, for the first time, many of his published articles on the philosophy of biology, spanning from the mid-1980's to the present. The book's title refers to Gregor Mendel, an Augustinian monk who was one of the first scientists to develop a theory of heredity. Mendel's work has been deeply influential to our understanding of our selves and our world, just as the study of genetics today will have a profound and long-term impact on future scientific research. Kitcher's articles cover a broad range of topics with similar philosophical and social significance: sociobiology, evolutionary psychology, species, race, altruism, genetic determinism, and the rebirth of creationism in Intelligent Design. Kitcher's work on the intersection of biology and the philosophy of science is both unprecedented and wide-ranging, and will appeal not only to philosophers of science, but to scholars and students across disciplines.

An analysis of the understanding, classification, and explanation of mental disorders that proposes that psychiatry adept the best practices of the cognitive sciences. In Psychiatry in the Scientific Image, Dominic Murphy looks at psychiatry from the viewpoint of analytic philosophy of science, considering three issues: how we should conceive of, classify, and explain mental illness. If someone is said to have a mental illness, what is mental about it? What makes it an illness? How might we explain and classify it? A system of psychiatric classification settles these questions by distinguishing the mental illnesses and showing how they stand in relation to one another. This book explores the philosophical issues raised by the project of explaining and classifying mental illness. If we are to classify mental illness properly, we must look for causal explanations of what is being classified. Murphy proposes building a methodological framework for explaining mental disorders that lets psychiatry take advantage of, and contribute to, developments in the cognitive sciences. the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - is an impediment to research; it lacks a coherent concept of the mental and a satisfactory account of disorder, and yields too much authority to common-sense thought about the mind. He argues that the explanation of mental illness should meet the standards of good explanatory practice in the cognitive neurosciences, and that the classification of mental disorders should group symptoms into conditions based on the causal structure of the normal mind. If psychiatry is the study of failures of normal human nature, Murphy writes, then it will be on sounder footing if it aims for consilience with the sciences of the normal mind/brain.
