Pictures and Teleology

Part of the Synthese Library book series (SYLI, volume 151)


Change is one of the fundamental facts with which the scientist deals. The philosopher is also concerned with change. His worries, however, are not those of the scientist. The scientist’s concern can be located in his efforts to construct theories to explain and predict with increasing adequacy the changes which occur in the physical world. The philosopher worries about the conceptual requirements for inquiry entailed by the efforts of the scientist.
