  • Can Theories be Refuted?by Sandra Harding

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 206.85

    According to a view assumed by many scientists and philosophers of science and standardly found in science textbooks, it is controlled ex­ perience which provides the basis for distinguishing between acceptable and unacceptable theories in science: acceptable theories are those which can pass empirical tests. It has often been thought that a certain... more...

  • Selected Papers on Epistemology and Physicsby B. Juhos; G. Frey; Henk L. Mulder

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 141.52

    It was as a result of having known Juhos personally over many years that I became familiar with his thought. I met him and Viktor Kraft in Vienna soon after the War and through their acquaintance I first came into contact with the tradition of the Vienna Circle. To their conversation .too lowe much as regards the clarification of my own views, even... more...

  • Dialectics of the Concreteby K. Kosík

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 141.52

    Kosik writes that the history of a text is in a certain sense the history of its interpretations. In the fifteen years that have passed since the fust (Czech) edition of his Dialectics of the Concrete, this book has been widely read and interpreted throughout Europe, in diverse centers of scholarship as well as in private studies. A faithful English... more...

  • Surrender and Catchby K.H. Wolff

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 174.19

    Su"ender and catch: give so you can receive, where the giving is your whole self, in a total experience. This is scarcely new on the American scene, and it is ancient knowledge, East and West. The fears of total surrender, the fears of self-revelation and of total abandon, although genuine, are likewise not new. Yet Kurt H. Wolff does attempt something... more...

  • Contemporary Research in the Foundations and Philosophy of Quantum Theoryby Cliff Hooker

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 83.82

    To mathematicians, mathematics is a happy game, to scientists a mere tool and to philosophers a Platonic mystery - or so the caricature runs. The caricature reflects the alleged 'cultural gap' between the disciplines­ a gap for which there too often has been, sadly, sound historical evidence. In many minds the lack of communication between philosophy... more...

Each of the papers has been revised in light of the discussions that took place during this symposium. None of the papers has appeared in print previously.

  • Modern Physics and its Philosophyby M. Strauss

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 83.82

    In selecting the papers for this volume I have excluded all physics papers proper. I have further omitted all book rev.iews. Instead, I have included two papers not published previously; they are marked by an asterisk (*) in the table of contents. Since many of the papers were occasioned by Symposia or similar gatherings their chronological order is... more...
