Bencze, J.L. (2009b). An eloquent and argumentative treatise on the history, philosophy and sociology of science for school science. Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 9(4), 276–288.

Note: This paper does have an abstract. It is a review of Hodson's (2008) book, Towards scientific literacy: A teachers’ guide to the history, philosophy and sociology of science. Rotterdam: Sense. As its name implies, this book addresses such topics as the nature of purposes, methods and truth-value of knowledge in the sciences in terms of studies in history, philosophy and sociology. This book could easily serve as course book for a graduate course in this subject.
