The Reach of Science [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 12 (3):492-492 (1959)

Mehlberg's technically competent work will make an excellent text for introductory courses in the philosophy of science. It moves from a discussion of scientific method to a theory of truth; then, without an appeal to a doctrine of meaning, it argues that every theoretical and practical problem which can be solved at all has a verifiable solution and can be solved by the scientific method.--G. B.
