Lara Varpio (@LaraVarpio) and Anna MacLeod (@ammacleod) discuss the recently published Philosophy of Science series. This collection of articles has something for everyone. It includes primers on 7 different paradigms (or collections of ideas about how we see the world) to help readers think about their HPE work in new ways.
