This highly regarded work offers them Relativity and the critical philosophy. book rich, "historico-critical" exposition — emphasizing geometrical ideas — of the elements of the Special and General Theory of by: This book starts with a description of the special theory of relativity.

It is shown that Einstein was not the first to derive the famous equation E = mc2, which Relativity and the critical philosophy. book become synonymous with his name.

Next, experimental evidence that cannot be explained by special relativity is given/5(6). Relativity: The Theory and its Philosophy provides a completely self-contained treatment of the philosophical foundations of the theory of relativity.

It also surveys the most essential mathematical techniques and concepts that are indispensable to an understanding of the foundations of both the special and general theories of relativity. This book contains the great physicist's own explanation of both the special and general theories of relativity.

Written for readers interested in the theory but not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics, it presents the ideas in their simplest, most intelligible form.

Relativism is the idea that views are relative to differences in perception and consideration. There are a variety of different interpretations of the concept.

The major categories of relativism vary in their degree of scope and controversy. Moral relativism encompasses the differences in moral judgments among people and cultures. Truth relativism is the doctrine that there are no absolute.

One of the first serious arguments of this kind was published in a monograph by the neo-Kantian Ernst Cassirer entitled Zur Einsteinschen Relativitätstheorie (“Einstein’s Theory of Relativity”).1 This book was also the subject of a decisive critique.

Author: Fritz K Preikschat. From the age of Galileo until the early years of the 20th century, scientists grappled with seemingly insurmountable paradoxes inherent in the theories of classical physics.

With the publication of Albert Einstein's "special" and "general" theories of relativity, however, traditional approaches to solving the riddles of space and time crumbled/5(12).

One is not surprised at Einstein’s then citing Mach’s critical analysis of the Newtonian conception of absolute space as a paradigm of what Mach, himself, termed the “historical-critical” method of philosophical analysis (Einstein, citing Ch. Relativity and the critical philosophy.

Today, Personal Knowledge remains one of the most significant philosophy of science books of the twentieth century, bringing the crucial concepts of “tacit knowledge” and “personal knowledge” to the forefront of inquiry.

The new edition which appeared in consists of two volumes, the first deals with special relativity and the second with generalCited by:   This book pieces together the jigsaw puzzle of Einstein’s journey to discovering the special theory of relativity.

Between andEinstein sat in the Patent Office and may have made calculations on old pieces of paper that were once patent drafts. One can imagine Einstein trying to hide from his boss, writing notes on small sheets of paper, and, according to reports, seeing to it.

In this book and the companion volume The Tenseless Theory of Time: A Critical Examination, Craig undertakes the first thorough appraisal of the arguments for and against the tensed and tenseless theories of time. The discussions range widely over issues in the philosophy of language, phenomenology, relativity theory, philosophy of space.

Other parts of the book are updated to include new observation tests of general relativity (e.g., the double pulsar system) and more recent evidence for dark matter and dark energy. New to this Edition: In this new edition of the book, presentations on special relativity and.

It is very easy to follow. Fairly sophisticated calculations are developed very rapidly. The presentation is logical and the detailed coverage makes this book very readable and useful.

The contents develop Relativity as a modern theory of motion, starting by placing it in historical perspective and proceeding to show its logical necessity. This is a list of important publications in philosophy, organized by field.

This book is an extended argument that the path actually taken, which became logicalempiricist philosophy of science, greatly contributed to the current impasse over realism.

Excerpt The theories of special and general relativity have been essential components of the physical world picture for now more than eight decades, longer than a generous.

This book offers a vigorous and constructive challenge to relativism by examining a wide range of anti-realist theories, and in response offering a variety of arguments amounting to a strong defence of critical realism in the natural and social sciences.

Winner of the Choice Award for Outstanding Academic Title!PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS EDITIONS This is a brilliantly clear introduction (and indeed reframing) of the history and philosophy of science in terms of worldviews and their elements. In addition, the book is incredibly well-informed from both a scientific and philosophical angle.

Highly ific and Medical Network Unlike Author: Richard Dewitt. Einstein's general theory of relativity -- currently our best theory of gravity -- is important not only to specialists, but to a much wider group of physicists. This short textbook on general relativity and gravitation offers students glimpses of the vast landscape of science connected to general relativity.

It incorporates some of the latest research in the field. Some of the famous philosophy books, written by the philosophers themselves, are now even available in ebook format. As you read through the topics on my site, I encourage you to make notes and select books to further pursue your interests.

quotes from Albert Einstein: 'Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.', 'There are only two ways to live your life.

One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.', and 'I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.

Imagination is more important than knowledge. The book begins with an analysis of the persistent difficulties of defining inertial mass in a noncircular manner and discusses the related question of whether mass is an observational or a theoretical concept. It then studies the notion of mass in special relativity and the delicate problem of whether the relativistic rest mass is the only.
