This book offers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the epistemology of science. It not only introduces readers to the general epistemological discussion of the nature of knowledge, but also provides key insights into the particular nuances of scientific knowledge. No prior knowledge of philosophy or science is assumed by The Nature of Scientific Knowledge. Nevertheless, the reader is taken on a journey through several core concepts of epistemology and philosophy of science that not only explores the characteristics of the scientific knowledge of individuals but also the way that the development of scientific knowledge is a particularly social endeavor. The topics covered in this book are of keen interest to students of epistemology and philosophy of science as well as science educators interested in the nature of scientific knowledge. In fact, as a result of its clear and engaging approach to understanding scientific knowledge The Nature of Scientific Knowledge is a book that anyone interested in scientific knowledge, knowledge in general, and any of a myriad of related concepts would be well advised to study closely.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Nature of Scientific Knowledge-An Explanatory Approach (TNSK)-is a recent contribution to textbooks in Epistemology of Science. While intended for students, this accessible and comprehensive introduction ... is a worthwhile read for both teachers and non-specialists interested in scientific knowledge as it covers a broad range of issues on the subject without assuming any background knowledge. It definitely helps readers gain a clear understanding of what scientific knowledge is and its specific relationship to knowledge in general." (Vincent Ardourel, Metascience, Vol. 26, 2017)
