An original exploration of how we represent the world. Von Frassen defends an empiricist structuralist version of the “picture theory” of science, through an inquiry into the paradoxes that came to light in 20th-century philosophies of science. He concludes with an analysis of the complex relationship between appearance and reality in the scientific world-picture.
