- Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 180.00
This book contains selected papers from the First International Conference on the Ontology of Spacetime. Its fourteen chapters address two main questions: first, what is the current status of the substantivalism/relationalism debate, and second, what about the prospects of presentism and becoming within present-day physics and its philosophy? The overall... more...

Almost from its inception, Einstein's general theory of relativity was known to sanction spacetime models harboring singularities, which involve a breakdown in the very fabric of space and time and, consequently, a failure of the known laws of physics. Here is where noted philosopher of science John Earman begins this first book-length study of a phenomenon... more...

Universally recognized as bringing about a revolutionary transformation of the notions of space, time, and motion in physics, Einstein's theory of gravitation, known as "general relativity," was also a defining event for 20th century philosophy of science. During the decisive first ten years of the theory's existence, two main tendencies dominated... more...

Thanks to Einstein's relativity theories, our notions of space and time underwent profound revisions about a 100 years ago. The resulting interplay between geometry and physics has dominated all of fundamental physics since then. This volume contains contributions from leading researchers, worldwide, who have thought deeply about the nature and consequences... more...
- Springer New York 2006; US$ 28.83
Specifically traces the impact of Einstein's ideas on astronomy, including the way we interpret observations of stars and galaxies. Includes comments from principals in important discoveries, illuminating the processes behind these results. Presents many applications of relativity that have not been shown in earlier popular-level books and illustrates... more...

A century ago, in 1905, Albert Einstein published, ?On the Electrodynamics of M- ing Bodies,? in which the foundations were laid for the Special Theory of Relativity. Ten years later his relativistic theory of gravitation and the General Theory of Relat- ity appeared. Fifty years ago, Einstein passed away in Princeton. In the 1980s, John Stachel, then... more...

This special double issue is concerned with some of the new theories of space and time. We would wish to express our thanks to the Guest Editors, Leon Feng, B. Paul Gibson and Yi Lin for accepting the invitation of the Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) of this journal to prepare it. The invitation follows the success of workshops and seminars organised... more...
- Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 149.88
The failure of all attempts to unify gravitation with other fundamental interactions has lead to an abandonment of point particles and differentiable spacetime of General Relativity and Quantum Theory, including Quantum Field Theory. While Quantum Superstrings (or M-Theory) and other Quantum Gravity approaches work with a lattice like structure or... more...

Ever since 1911, the Solvay Conferences have shaped modern physics. The 23rd edition, chaired by 2004 Nobel Laureate David Gross, did not break with that tradition. It gathered most of the leading figures working on the central problem of reconciling Einsteins theory of gravity with quantum mechanics. These proceedings give a broad overview with... more...
- Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95
Einstein, Relativity and Absolute Simultaneity is an anthology of original essays by an international team of leading philosophers and physicists who have come together to reassess the contemporary paradigm of the relativistic concept of time. A great deal has changed since 1905 when Einstein proposed his Special Theory of Relativity, and this book... more...
