The logical structure of mathematical physics by Joseph D Sneed( Book )

40 editions published between 1971 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about scientific theories of a particular kind - theories of mathematical physics. Examples of such theories are classical and relativis tic particle mechanics, classical electrodynamics, classical thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, hydrodynamics, and quantum mechanics. Roughly, these are theories in which a certain mathematical structure is employed to make statements about some fragment of the world. Most of the book is simply an elaboration of this rough characterization of theories of mathematical physics. It is argued that each theory of mathematical physics has associated with it a certain characteristic mathematical struc ture. This structure may be used in a variety of ways to make empirical claims about putative applications of the theory. Typically - though not necessarily - the way this structure is used in making such claims requires that certain elements in the structure play essentially different roles. Some playa "theoretical" role; others playa "non-theoretical" role. For example, in classical particle mechanics, mass and force playa theoretical role while position plays a non-theoretical role. Some attention is given to showing how this distinction can be drawn and describing precisely the way in which the theoretical and non-theoretical elements function in the claims of the theory. An attempt is made to say, rather precisely, what a theory of mathematical physics is and how you tell one such theory from anothe- what the identity conditions for these theories are

Notes on intensional theories by Joseph D Sneed( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

RESUMEN: La cuestión de si los lenguajes intensionales son más expresivos que los lenguajes no intensionales surge en el marco de una perspectiva semántica de las teorías. Desde esta perspectiva, la cuestión es esta. ¿Hay clases modelo que se pueden caracterizar mediante teorías que usan conceptos intensionales que no se pueden caracterizar mediante teorías que no usan conceptos intensionales? Se sugiere una formulación precisa de esta cuestión, pero no se ofrece una respuesta. Para aproximarse a esta cuestión, se resume la teoría de modelos de primer orden [II] y se revisa el enfoque semántico de las teorías que emplea incrementos teóricos, no intensionales, de primer orden [III]. Los incrementos teóricos de primer orden se bosquejan pero no se definen rigurosamente [IV]. Este lenguaje intensional proporciona el aparato para atribuir uso del lenguaje y actitudes intensionales a individuos cuyo comportamiento es el objeto de investigación. También proporciona el aparato para hablar sobre traducción del lenguaje atribuido al lenguaje del investigador. La cuestión inicial se convierte entonces en si hay clases modelo que se puedan caracterizar mediante incrementos intencionales de lógica de primer orden que no pueden ser capturados por incrementos teóricos no-intensionales [V]

Micro-Economic Models of Problem Choice in Basic Science by Joseph D Sneed( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Certain representations of basic scientific knowledge can be coupled with traditional micro-economic analysis to provide an analysis of rational research planning or agenda setting in basic science. Research planning is conceived of as a resource allocation decision in which resources are being allocated to activities directed toward the solution of basic scientific problems. A structuralist representation of scientific knowledge will be employed to provide a relatively precise characterization of a basic scientific problem. The main thrust of the analysis consists in describing various ways in which values enter into those decisions. Distinction is made between internal and external values operating in these decisions. The discussion focuses on exploiting this representation of knowledge in a manner which will illuminate the scientific value of solving certain basic problems. A micro-economic approach to the problem of resource allocation suggests that it may be fully understood in terms of values (or utilities) and probabilities attached to the solution of the problems by the decision makers. A bibliography of 12 items is included. (Author/PPB)

An Architectonic for Science : the Structuralist Program by Wolfgang Balzer( )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book has grown out of eight years of close collaboration among its authors. From the very beginning we decided that its content should come out as the result of a truly common effort. That is, we did not "distribute" parts of the text planned to each one of us. On the contrary, we made a point that each single paragraph be the product of a common reflection. Genuine team-work is not as usual in philosophy as it is in other academic disciplines. We think, however, that this is more due to the idiosyncrasy of philosophers than to the nature of their subject. Close collaboration with positive results is as rewarding as anything can be, but it may also prove to be quite difficult to implement. In our case, part of the difficulties came from purely geographic separation. This caused unsuspected delays in coordinating the work. But more than this, as time passed, the accumulation of particular results and ideas outran our ability to fit them into an organic unity. Different styles of exposition, different ways of formalization, different levels of complexity were simultaneously present in a voluminous manuscript that had become completely unmanageable. In particular, a portion of the text had been conceived in the language of category theory and employed ideas of a rather abstract nature, while another part was expounded in the more conventional set-theoretic style, stressing intui tivity and concreteness
