(início)

The subject on which I have been asked to speak today is the relations between the history and the philosophy of science. For me, more than for most, it has deep personal as well as intellectual significance. I stand before you as a practicing historian of science. Most of my students mean to be historians, not philosophers. I am a member of the American Historical, not the American Philosophical, Association. But for almost ten years after I first encountered philosophy as a college freshman, it was my primary avocational interest, and I often considered making it my vocation, displacing theoretical physics, the only field in which I can claim to have been properly trained. Throughout those years, which lasted until around 1948, it never occurred to me that history or history of science could hold the slightest interest. To me then, as to most scientists and philosophers still, the historian was a man who collects and verifies facts about the past and who later arranges them in chronological order. Clearly the production of chronicles could have little appeal to someone whose fundamental concerns were with deductive inference and fundamental theory.
