Abstract

The author of this article introduces a new column that will explore philosophical issues of concern to nurse scientists. In this initial column, I review the general terrain of philosophy in nursing science and explore some philosophical issues relevant to theory development. One conclusion is that inquiry into philosophical issues may help expand our repertoire of conceptual tools useful in building scientific knowledge and facilitating theoretical progress.
