Book Description:

Newton deplored speculation in science, Einstein reveled in it. What exactly are scientific speculations? Are they ever legitimate? Are they subject to constraints? This book defends a pragmatic approach to these issues and applies it to speculations within science (e.g., ones in fundamental physics) and to speculations about science (e.g., ones about simplicity, holism, and a "Theory of Everything").
