209 editions published between 1897 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic by the Nobel Laureate is still recognized as one of the best introductions to thermodynamics. A model of conciseness and clarity, it covers fundamental facts and definitions, first and second fundamental principles of thermodynamics, applications to special states of equilibrium, and much more. Numerous worked examples. 1917 edition

The philosophy of physics by Max Planck( Book )

18 editions published between 1936 and 1963 in English and Chinese and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Max Planck, the physicist who originated the quantum theory, turns in this volume to a definition of the philosophy of physics, analyzing the task of that science and scrutinizing its achievements in the light of its goals. He deals most exhaustively with a basic problem common to both physics and philosophy, the problem of causality in nature--not because he hopes to solve it at last, but because he feels he cannot avoid it: "Placed at birth in the middle of life, and in order to find our way through this live which is ours whether we want it or not, we try to introduce order into our experience." He discusses the characteristics of a "scientific" idea, its origin and effect, and in closing makes some extremely shrewd remarks on the familiar subject of science versus faith

Scientific autobiography, and other papers by Max Planck( Book )

33 editions published between 1949 and 2014 in English and German and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this fascinating autobiography from the foremost genius of twentieth-century physics, Max Planck tells the story of his life, his aims, and his thinking. Published posthumously, the papers in this volume were written for the general reader and make accessible his scientific theories as well as his philosophical ideals, including his thoughts on ethics and morals. Max (Karl Ernst Ludwig) Planck was a German physicist and philosopher known for his quantum theory, for which he won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918. Planck was born in Kiel, Germany, in 1858 to an academic family, and he valued education from a young age. He attended the Universities of Munich and Berlin to study physics under the great scientific leaders Kirchhoff and Helmholtz. His early work mainly focused on the study of thermodynamics, and in 1900 he published a paper on his quantum theory that would change the face of modern physics. Planck worked as a professor at Berlin University his entire life, and he also served as the president of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society for the Promotion of Science. During World War II, Planck experienced great hardships while he remained in Germany but openly opposed the Nazi regime. One of his two sons was executed during this time for an unsuccessful attempt on Hitler's life, and Planck's home in Berlin was eventually bombed. He continued to write on physics and philosophy until his death in 1947
