Reviews

"Franklin successfully demonstrates how experimental work supports and corrects scientific knowledge, making science 'a reasonable enterprise that gives us knowledge of the natural world, based on valid experimental evidence and on a reasoned and critical discussion.' Highly recommended."
--Choice
"Franklin's superb contributions to the history and philosophy of science over many years have provided the foundation for this excellent book, in which he makes the inner workings of science accessible to a broad audience of well-educated nonscientists. By examining wrong experiments as well as correct ones, he shows how scientists make rational arguments and follow reasonable strategies to sort out competing claims. In the process, he answers some of the most serious critics of science."
--William E. Evenson, former editor, History of Physics Newsletter
"Readers not familiar with the literature will learn through Franklin's book a great deal about the history of the electron, the neutrino, the magnetic monopole, and much else. [He] wisely selects his case studies to illuminate the influence that experiments have had in science . . . physicists will find in it a useful epitome of Franklin's past contributions and will be reassured of the legitimacy of their rationalist conception of science."
