  • For Dirk Struikby Robert S. Cohen; J.J. Stachel; Marx W. Wartofsky

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 389.00

    It is fitting that Professor Dirk Jan Struik be greeted with this melange of mathematical, scientific, historical, sociological and political essays. The authors are also appropriately varied: different countries, outlooks, religions, generations, and we suppose - of course we did not as- different politics too. Many more would have joined us, we know,... more...

  • Essays in Philosophy and Its Historyby Wilfrid Sellars

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 319.00

    In pulling these essays together for inclusion in one volume I do not believe that I have done them violence. Since they originally appeared at different times and places they constitute a scattered object. Never­ theless, to the author's eye they have unities of theme and development which, if they fail to give them the true identity of the book,... more...

  • Physical Theory as Logico-Operational Structureby Cliff Hooker

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    In two earlier volumes, entitled The Logico-Algebraic Approach to Quan­ tum Mechanics (hereafter LAA I, II), I have presented collections of research papers which trace out the historical development and contem­ porary flowering of a particular approach to physical theory. One might characterise this approach as the extraction of an abstract logico-algebraic... more...

  • Philosophy of Physicsby Mario BUNGE

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 289.00

    This book deals with some of the current issues in the philosophy, methodology and foundations of physics. Some such problems are: - Do mathematical formalisms interpret themselves or is it necessary to adjoin them interpretation assumptions, and if so how are these as­ sumptions to be framed? - What are physical theories about: physical systems or... more...

  • Conceptual Changeby G.A. Pearce; P. Maynard

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 219.00

    During Hallowe'en of 1970, the Department of Philosophy of the Univer­ sity of Western Ontario held its annual fall colloquium at London, On­ tario. The general topic of the sessions that year was conceptual change. The thirteen papers composing this volume stem more or less directly from those meetings; six of them are printed here virtually as delivered,... more...

  • Philosophical Problems of Space and Timeby Adolf Grünbaum

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 329.00

    It is ten years since Adolf Griinbaum published the first edition of this book. It was promptly recognized to be one of the few major works in the philosophy of the natural sciences of this generation. In part, this is so because Griinbaum has chosen a problem basic both to philosophy and to the natural sciences - the nature of space and time; and... more...

  • Theory of Scienceby B. Bolzano; Burnham Terrell; Jan Berg

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 389.00

    The present selection from the Wissenschaftslehre (Sulzbach 1837) of Bernard Bolzano (1781-1848) aims at giving a compact view of his main ideas in logic, semantics, epistemology and the methodology of science. These ideas are analyzed from a modern point of view in the Introduction. Furthermore, excerpts from Bolzano's correspondence are included... more...

  • Correspondence Principle and Growth of Scienceby W. Krajewski

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    This book is devoted to the problems of the growth of science. These prob­ lems, neglected for a long time by the philosophers of science, have become in the 60's and 70's a subject of vivid discussion. There are philosophers who stress only the dependence of science upon various sociological, psycho­ logical and other factors and deny any internal... more...

  • Local Inductionby R. Bogdan

    Springer Netherlands 2012; Not Available

    The local justification of beliefs and hypotheses has recently become a major concern for epistemologists and philosophers of induction. As such, the problem of local justification is not entirely new. Most pragmatists had addressed themselves to it, and so did, to some extent, many classical inductivists in the Bacon-Whewell-Mill tradition. In the... more...
