What makes science different from other ways of investigating the world? In "Theory and Reality" Peter Godfrey-Smith uses debates - such as the problem of confirmation, the new riddle of induction, and the problem of scientific realism - as a way to introduce, in a completely accessible way, the main themes in the philosophy of science.

We might represent them first, in order to change them later. Keywords: John Dewey , representation , knowledge , maps , epistemology.
