According to the received view, mainstream philosophy of science in the s, 40s, and 50s focused on physics and general epistemology, neglecting analyses of the ‘special sciences’, including by: His books include The Structure of Biological Science, Hume and the Problem of Causation (with T.L. Beauchamp), Instrumental Biology or the Disunity of Science, and Economics–Mathematical Politics or Science of Diminishing Returns, for which he received the Lakatos Award from the London School of Economics for the most distinguished.

This book is the apologia of a frustrated reductionist. The frustration derives from Rosenberg's clear perception that the project of physicalist reduction, the reduction of all the sciences of complex objects to physics, is impossible, at least, as he often says, for beings hampered by our limited cognitive and computational abilities.
