内容説明・目次

内容説明

In this book, Tullock focuses attention on the organisation of science, raising important questions about scientific inquiry and specifically about the problems of science as a social system. Tullock poses such questions as: how do scientists engage in apparently co-operative contributions in the absence of hierarchic organisation and why are scientific contributions worthy, for the most part, of the publics trust? Throughout The Organization of Inquiry, Tullock answers these questions and many more through a pioneering exploration of the interrelationship between economics and the philosophy of science, much of which had defied then-conventional wisdom. Anyone interested in scientific endeavour will find the combination of Tullocks powerful logic, his sharp forensic skills, and his barbed wit elucidating and helpful.
