MASSONI, Neusa Teresinha  e  MOREIRA, Marco Antonio. NANCY CARTWRIGHT'S EPISTEMOLOGY: A CONTRIBUTION TO THE DEBATE ON THE NATURE OF CURRENT SCIENCE. Ens. Pesqui. Educ. Ciênc. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.3, pp.95-120. ISSN 1983-2117.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1983-21172014160305.

This paper brings into discussion some of Nancy Cartwright's ideas about the nature of current science. We believe that her formation focused on Mathematics challenges us to an innovative look at science, especially about the nature of the deepest and the most successful fundamental laws of Physics by reinterpreting concepts as causality, objectivity and realism. The ideas summarized on this paper don't deal with the complexity of her epistemology. The aim is only to keep the course of the epistemological debate and instigate new thoughts, mostly to physics teachers. This is done by suggesting that the philosophy of science, as well as science itself, which does not have final questions, but instead keeps in march and continues its evolution.
