Description: Robert E. Butts (1928-1997) was a philosopher andhistorian of science whose central concerns were the distinctionbetween the rational and the irrational. He viewed scientificrationality as our major defence against the various conditions thatencourage witch hunts and similar outbursts of irrationality, with alltheir attendant pain and terror. Butts saw himself as a pragmaticrealist, combining what he took to be the best aspects of logicalempiricism with a historically informed pragmatism, deeplyappreciative of the methods of science, trying to describe a kind ofrationality essential in the struggle to preserve human values.This volume gathers previously unpublished essays and lectures withsome previously published, thematically related essays. It includesessays and lectures on philosophical aspects of the European witchhunt, on scientific rationality and methodology, and on therelationships between science and philosophy exhibited in the writingsof such historically significant figures as Leibniz, D'Alembert, Hume, Kant, Carnap and Kuhn.
