Philosophy & Social Aspects

  • Biology, History, and Natural Philosophyby Allan D. Breck

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    In a world that peers over the brink of disaster more often than not it is difficult to find specific assignments for the scholarly community. One speaks of peace and brotherhood only to realize that for many the only real hope of making a contribution may seem to be in a field of scientific specialization seemingly irrelevant to social causes and... more...

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 239.00

  • 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...

  • Science a Road to Wisdomby Peter Wesly; E.W. Beth

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    A few days before his death my husband requested me to write a few words of thanks on the publication of this collection of articles. He had already prepared the greater part of the volume for the press and had also decided on the title Science a Road to Wisdom. His original selection was somewhat more comprehensive, which is still partly reflected... 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...

  • Scientific Methodby J.K. Feibleman

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    There remains only the obligation to thank those who have helped me with specific suggestions and the editors who have kindly granted permission to reprint material which first appeared in the pages of their journals. To the former group belong Alan B. Brinkley and Max O. Hocutt Portion of chap­ ters I and VI were published in Philosophy of Science;... more...

  • The Justification of Scientific Changeby C.R. Kordig

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 129.00

    In this book I discuss the justification of scientific change and argue that it rests on different sorts of invariance. Against this background I con­ sider notions of observation, meaning, and regulative standards. My position is in opposition to some widely influential and current views. Revolutionary new ideas concerning the philosophy of science... more...

  • PSA 1970by R.C. Buck; Robert S. Cohen

  • 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...
