Opened my eyes
Philosophy of Science: Bolinda Beginner Guides
Not applicable (this is non-fiction - no characters as such)
The problem of induction seems insoluble (mainly because of Hume's argument and the Duhem-Quine problem), yet science is inconceivable without it (as is quotidien reasoning and acting).
Should be read by all thinking people - especially scientists, who are often allergic to philosophical analysis of what they do.
First audiobook have listened to; I will now read another
McEwan is such a clever writer and has a marvellous way with words. I found the book intriguing while I listened to it, and felt very satisfied when I had heard the conclusion. I also my eyes where opened to the way MI5 probably works.
Juliet Stevenson takes the part of the narrator and matches her perfectly with just the right accent, age, and expression.
No, I listened to it in my car as I travelled to and from work (a 30 minute trip each way), which was perfect. I did however find myself sitting in the car for a few minutes after I had reached my destination, eager to hear more.
This was my first audiobook and I am sold! I downloaded another the moment this one was finished.
