  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Constellations and Conjecturesby Willard C. Humphreys Jr.; N.R. Hanson

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 249.00

    An occurrence is explained by being related to prior events through known laws. Other intellectual activities may also constitute explanation - but this much certainly does. Ideally, an explained occurrence (0) could have been predicted in a connected way - by extrapolation from prior events (e) via the same laws (L). Schematically, 1 Explanation:... more...

  • Theoretical Concepts and Hypothetico-Inductive Inferenceby I. Niiniluoto; R. Tuomela

    Springer Netherlands 2012; Not Available

    Conceptual change and its connection to the development of new seien­ tific theories has reeently beeome an intensively discussed topic in philo­ sophieal literature. Even if the inductive aspects related to conceptual change have already been discussed to some extent, there has so far existed no systematic treatment of inductive change due to conceptual... more...

  • Method, Model and Matterby Mario BUNGE

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 179.00

    This collection of essays deals with three clusters of problems in the philo­ sophy of science: scientific method, conceptual models, and ontological underpinnings. The disjointedness of topics is more apparent than real, since the whole book is concerned with the scientific knowledge of fact. Now, the aim of factual knowledge is the conceptual grasping... more...
