PREFACE

The topic Philosophy of Science [PoS] in the context of modern science has  a history of   more then 100 years and — in the view of the author — this topic has not yet settled in one grand view of science which is globally accepted.[1]-[7] From the many books the one which I like most as a good first introduction is that entitled The Structure of Scienctific Theories edited by Frederick Suppe (1977).[5]  In the German philosophical discourse there exists the distinction between ‘Philosophy of Science’ (‘Wissenschaftsphilosophie’) and ‘Theory of Science’ (‘Wissenschaftstheorie’). [7] In this text this distinction will not be used.
