Mach, Ernst
Ernst Mach-a deeper look : documents and new perspectives by John T Blackmore( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and German and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernst Mach -- A Deeper Look has been written to reveal to English-speaking readers the recent revival of interest in Ernst Mach in Europe and Japan. The book is a storehouse of new information on Mach as a philosopher, historian, scientist and person, containing a number of biographical and philosophical manuscripts published for the first time, along with correspondence and other matters published for the first time in English. The book also provides English translations of Mach's controversies with leading physicists and psychologists, such as Max Planck and Carl Stumpf, and offers basic evidence for resolving Mach's position on atomism and Einstein's theory of relativity. Mach's scientific, philosophical and personal influence in a number of countries -- Austria, Germany, Bohemia and Yugoslavia among them -- has been carefully explored and many aspects detailed for the first time. All of the articles are eminently readable, especially those written by Mach's sister. They are deeply researched, new interpretations abound, and the bibliography includes recent works by and about Mach from over a dozen countries. The book also contains many articles by or about Mach's contemporaries, including Ostwald, Dingler, Weichert and, especially, Einstein. Finally, and most intriguingly, the original ideas of Japanese scholars are presented, built on Mach's philosophy. These demonstrate how Mach's world view is currently contributing to the solution of contemporary philosophical problems
Ludwig Boltzmann : his later life and philosophy, 1900-1906 by Ludwig Boltzmann( Book )

27 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gives the first detailed record of Ludwig Boltzmann's life and philosophical thoughts during his final years, a period of major change in physics and in the need for a new methodology of theoretical, idealized science. The growing primacy of physical theory over observation and experimentation meant that Boltzmann needed a methodology which went beyond Ernst Mach's phenomenalism and theory of economy. The documentary approach of this book means that historians, philosophers, and physicists can use it as a source and foundation for understanding the development of quantum and relativity theory and the new advances in methodology better. They can also use it as an aid in improving or creating their own contributions to methodology and philosophy of science. Seeds of future linguistic philosophy are also present
Ernst Mach's Vienna, 1895-1930, or, Phenomenalism as philosophy of science by John T Blackmore( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work gives insight into the philosophical influence Ernst Mach (1838-1916) has had on leading Viennese physicists and philosophers of his time by relating the ideas and works of these men to Mach's phenomenalism. The relation between Mach and the University of Vienna Philosophical Society is also examined. In the process little-known documents and correspondence from Mach are presented. Additionally, this extensive research helps clarify the conflict between Mach and most physicists over the reality of atoms and places the claim of Mach and his followers to represent science and philosophy of science against the claim of Planck and Einstein that phenomenalism and positivism were not even compatible with science. Audience: This is an ideal book for both graduate students and scholars in the field of history and philosophy of science

Ludwig Boltzmann : his later life and philosophy, 1900-1906 by John T Blackmore( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After his failure to replace metaphysics by a linguistic approach, Ludwig Boltzmann came to identify the philosophy of science with methodology which, in turn, he considered to be part of science itself, and thus not part of philosophy at all. His definition of philosophy as metaphysics meant that, from his point of view, all philosophers were metaphysiciams, himself included

Causal dialogues, or, What is influence? by John T Blackmore( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blackmore presents six dialogues patterned after those of Socrates in which a leader, an ally, a man of the cloth, a partly educated young women eager to learn, and a vigorous opponent debate a number of questions. They are influence and representation, free-will and self-defense, science and practical reason, the nature of influence, searching for assumptions, and when the forts of folly fall
