• Tim Lewens's wonderful addition to the excellent Pelican Introductions series, <i>The Meaning of Science</i>, is all the evidence any open-minded inquirer needs to demonstrate the worth of philosophy of science . . . Like the best introductions, this is more manifesto than textbook, making a convincing case for its subject by explaining why it is both important and interesting. There is no better, clearer case for why both science and philosophy matter and why neither can replace the other.
