To that goal, and it is hoped that it will incorporate further works dealing in an exact way with interesting philosophical issues. Zürich, April 1973 Mario Bunge From the Preface to the First Edition It may seem odd that aseries of works devoted to the natural sciences should indude - indeed begin with - a volume on phi losophy. Today, of course, it is generally agreed that philosophy and natural science are perfectly compatible. But to grant the theory of knowledge such a prominent position implies not only that these two fields are compatible, but that there is a natural connection between them. Thus the indusion of this book in the series can be justified only if such an intimate relation of mutual dependence and interpenetration really does exist. Without anticipating what is to come, the author would like first to explain his point of view on the relationship between epistemology and the sciences, and in so doing make dear at the outset the method to be followed in this book. It is my view - which I have already expressed elsewhere and which I never tire of repeating - that philosophy is not aseparate science to be placed alongside of or above the individual disciplines. Rather, the philosophical element is present in all of the scienccs; it is their true soul, and only by virtue of it are they sciences at all

Space and time in contemporary physics; an introduction to the theory of relativity and gravitation by Moritz Schlick( Book )

56 editions published between 1919 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moritz Schlick, the influential German philosopher and leader of the logical positivist school of philosophy known as the Vienna Circle, wrote Space and Time in Contemporary Physics in 1919 specifically to introduce readers unfamiliar with Einstein's theories to the profound importance of the physicist's immense contributions. This is one of the clearest expositions in layperson's terms of Einstein's theory of relativity and its paradigm-shifting implications for philosophy and commonsense notions of reality. Einstein himself reviewed Schlick's work before publication and is thanked in the preface for "giving me many useful hints."" "With a talent for illustrative analogies and a concise, lucid style of presentation, Schlick explains both the special and the general theories of relativity. Beginning with the older Newtonian view of space, time, and the laws governing matter, the author proceeds to show how Einstein's theories solved certain problems inherent in the old view and provided a radical new conception of reality. Separate chapters discuss the special principle of relativity, the geometrical relativity of space, the mathematical formulation of special relativity, the inseparability of geometry and physics in experience, the relativity of motions and the connection with inertia and gravitation, the general theory of relativity, the significance of Einstein's fundamental new law, the finitude of the universe, and the impact of Einstein's ideas on philosophy. Since their original publication, numerous experiments have confirmed Einstein's ideas. Thus, Schlick's work continues to be a valuable and highly accessible explication of one of science's most enduring achievements. Book jacket."--Jacket

Ethics and the will : essays by Friedrich Waismann( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These are a paper on Ethics and Science, which defends the Wittgensteinian view that morality is something one cannot defend, but only profess, and (itself more than half the volume) a treatise on will and motive, where the influence of Wittgenstein is mediated by that of Ryle and where many points in modern theory of action are anticipated with the author's usual sensitivity both to language and to the complexity of the human situation. (Joachim Schulte recently edited these two works in the original German, otherwise they have remained unpublished). This valuable addition to the VCC should illuminate both the history of the Circle and the kind of reflection on language and action which dominates the practical philosophy of our own day

Moritz Schlicks 1904 verfasste Dissertation ""Reflexion des Lichtes"" und sein 13 Jahre später erschienenes Werk ""Raum und Zeit"" verbindet der Gegenstandsbereich: die Physik. Während die Dissertation noch vom angehenden Naturwissenschafter verfasst wurde, handelt es sich bei ""Raum und Zeit"" um das Werk eines die philosophischen Grundlagen der Naturwissenschaften reflektierenden Wissenschaftstheoretikers, eine einflussreiche Studie zu Albert Einsteins Relativitätstheorie. Beide Texte wurden textkritisch bearbeitet und unter Verwendung bisher unveröffentlichter Nachlassdokumente mit Erläuter
