The essays collected in this volume show how Fleck's approaches evolved from engaging with rival views on scientific knowledge, while his unorthodox view of the peculiar nature of medical research remained the primary paradigm of science on which he developed his terminology. At the same time, Fleck's writings document a revealing combination of scientific and philosophical thinking, of individual scientific analysis, and of general scientific theory.
