Science and Hypothesis by Henri Poincaré

"Science and Hypothesis" is a philosophical exploration of the nature of scientific inquiry, where the author argues that many elements of scientific theory are based on convenient assumptions rather than empirical evidence. The book challenges the notion of absolute truth in science, asserting that many scientific principles are merely working hypotheses that have yet to be disproven. It also discusses the role of mathematics in science, the limitations of inductive reasoning, and the importance of intuition and creativity in scientific discovery.
