Review of Depth.

Speaking of TiLPs, Stephan Hartmann and our very own Jonah N. Schupbach (Pitt) have a recent review of Michael Strevens, *Depth: An Account of Scientific Explanation*, Harvard UP, 2008, at NDPR: http://ndpr.nd.edu/review.cfm?id=20248
Because I have not read the book it's hard to say how fair the review is. At 500 pages the book is a bit daunting to start (and being committed to funky causes, I am not very receptive of mono-accounts of causation). Nevertheless, I was struck that the reviews' objections are both methodological in character rather than substantive.
