"Legend is overdue for replacement, and an adequate replacement must attend to the process of science as carefully as Hull has done.
I share his vision of a serious account of the social and intellectual dynamics of science that will avoid both the rosy blur of Legend and the facile charms of relativism. . . . Because of [Hull's] deep concern with the ways in which research is actually done, "Science as a Process" begins an important project in the study of science.
It is one of a distinguished series of books, which Hull himself edits".--Philip Kitcher, "Nature"
