Sažetak
Natural Kinds and Classification in Scientific Practice, edited by Catherine Kendig, is a collection of essays on the topic of classification and natural kinds with a special emphasis on actual scientific practice. What distinguishes this collection from various other contributions to the topic of natural kinds is, in the editor’s words, the focus on the question of how natural kinds are ‘used, discovered or made’ (3) in practice. This approach is taken to exemplify the so-called practice turn in history and philosophy of science and in science and technology studies. Kendig holds that the traditional philosophical debate on natural kinds is based largely on an unempirical point of view that relies on a few toy examples such as tigers, gold or H2O and assumes that the a priori metaphysical categories will correspond to the ones that are used in science. This volume aims to compensate for this deficit by focusing on what have been named natural kinding practices.
