The article reviews a volume that aims to present, what the editor deems to be, contemporary issues in philosphy of science through a series of eight debates between leading analytic philosophers in the given field. Each contributor argues for or against a proposed motion of the debate, ranging from issues of metaphysics and epistemology of science to specific philosophical questions in physics, biology and psychology. In that they draw on a wealth of techniques from the practice of philosophy of science from conceptual clarificaitons to invocation of examples from scienitifc practice. Nonethless, against the background of philospohical work associated with contemporary scientific practice the topics selected for this volume seem limited in both depth (the fundamental metaphysical and epistemological questions are not backed up by the equally fundamental scientific research) and scope (the ‘ contemporaneity’ of scientific questions presented is not always up to scratch). The volume’ s great worth is in presenting ‘ philosophy of science in action’ by exercising many tricks of the trade in several self-contained chapters.
