Every ten years, Alan Chalmers draws on his experience as a teacher and researcher to improve and update the text that strives to answer the philosophical question in it’s title: What is This Thing Called Science? Identifying the qualitative difference between knowledge of atoms as it figures in contemporary science and metaphysical speculations about atoms common in philosophy since the time of Democritus proves to be a highly revealing and instructive way to pinpoint key features of the answer to that question. The most significant feature of this fourth edition is the extensive postscript, in which Chalmers uses the results of his recent research on the history of atomism to illustrate and enliven key themes in the philosophy of science. This new edition ensures that the book holds its place as the leading introduction to the philosophy of science for the foreseeable future.

This work provides a comprehensive introduction to the issues raised by the interaction of science and religion. It describes the history of their relationship, which stretches far beyond the episodes of Galileo and Darwin, suggesting that contrary to popular myth Christianity provided a helpful context for the rise of modern science. The book also describes the issues raised by the philosophy of science, and deals in some detail with the new discipline of the sociology of science. It includes a brief overview of key areas of contemporary science, discussions of the use of science by theologians and many suggestions as to how theology should respond to the scientific culture in which we live.
