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

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 294.32

    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...

  • Method, Model and Matterby Mario BUNGE

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 153.65

    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...

  • Belief and Probabilityby J.M. Vickers

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 141.83

    1. A WORD ABOUT PRESUPPOSITIONS This book is addressed to philosophers, and not necessarily to those philosophers whose interests and competence are largely mathematical or logical in the formal sense. It deals for the most part with problems in the theory of partial judgment. These problems are naturally formulated in numerical and logical terms,... more...

  • Exact Philosophyby Mario BUNGE

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 91.00

    The papers that follow were read and discussed at the first Symposium on Exact Philosophy. This conference was held at Montreal on November 4th and 5th, 1971, to celebrate the sesquicentennial of McGill University and establish the Society for Exact Philosophy. The expression 'exact philosophy' is taken to signify mathematical phi­ losophy, i.e., philosophy... more...

  • Space, Time, and Geometryby Patrick Suppes

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 200.93

    The articles in this volume have been stimulated in two different ways. More than two years ago the editor of Synthese, laakko Hintikka, an­ nounced a special issue devoted to space and time, and articles were solicited. Part of the reason for that announcement was also the second source of papers. Several years ago I gave a seminar on special relativity... more...

  • Scientific Proceduresby David Short; L. Tondl

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 189.11

    For a decade, we have admired the incisive and broadly informed works of Ladislav Tondl on the foundations of science. Now it is indeed a pleasure to include this book among the Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science. We hope that it will help to deepen the collaborative scholar­ ship of scientists and philosophers in Czechoslovakia with the English­... more...

  • Philosophical Problems of Modern Physicsby W. Riemer; Peter Mittelstaedt

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 106.37

    Professor Peter Mittelstaedt is a physicist whose primary concern is the foundations of current physical theories. This concern has made him, through his prolonged, incisive and detailed examinations of the structures and overall characteristics of these theories, into a philosopher of physic- of contemporary physics, to be precise, of relativistic... more...

  • Information and Inferenceby Jaakko Hintikka; Patrick Suppes

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 224.57

    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...

  • Nominalistic Systemsby Rolf A. Eberle

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 91.00

    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...

  • Induction, Physics and Ethicsby P. Weingartner; G. Zecha

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 258.86

    Proceedings and Discussion of the 1968 Salzburg Colloquium in the Philosophy of Science. more...
