  • 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...

  • Information and Inferenceby Jaakko Hintikka; Patrick Suppes

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 299.00

    In the last 25 years, the concept of information has played a crucial role in communication theory, so much so that the terms information theory and communication theory are sometimes used almost interchangeably. It seems to us, however, that the notion of information is also destined to render valuable services to the student of induction and probability,... more...

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    1. 1. PROGRAM It will be our aim to reconstruct, with precision, certain views which have been traditionally associated with nominalism and to investigate problems arising from these views in the construction of interpreted formal systems. Several such systems are developed in accordance with the demand that the sentences of a system which is acceptable... more...

  • Science is Godby D. F. Horrobin

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    I am becoming increasingly disturbed by the lack of under­ standing of science revealed by politicians, industrialists and the general public. I am also concerned about the widespread mis­ use of the word "scientific" which is more and more being used in situations where it is quite inappropriate. As a result, in some circumstances gross overestimates... 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...
