Wittgenstein's Tractatus : an introduction by Alfred Nordmann( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ludwig Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus is one of the most important books of the twentieth century. It influenced philosophers and artists alike and continues to fascinate readers today. It offers rigorous arguments but clothes them in enigmatic pronouncements. Wittgenstein himself said that his book is "strictly philosophical and simultaneously literary, and yet there is no blathering in it." This introduction considers both the philosophical and the literary aspects of the Tractatus and shows how they are related. It also shows how the work fits into Wittgenstein's philosophical development and the tradition of analytic philosophy, arguing strongly for the vigor and significance of that tradition."--Jacket

Heinrich Hertz : classical physicist, modern philosopher by Davis Baird( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first major collection of essays devoted to Heinrich Hertz (1857-1894) brings together an international group of physicists, philosophers, and historians of science. It includes investigations of Hertz's background, his theoretical and experimental contributions, his philosophy of science, and his influence on science and philosophy in the twentieth century. Its central focus is Hertz's Principles of Mechanics of 1894 which develops the methodological intuitions that also informed his earlier discovery of electromagnetic wave radiation (so-called radio waves). Though his proposed reform of mechanics was not adopted, the book proved influential on physicists like Einstein, Schrödinger, Bohr, and Heisenberg, and on philosophers like Cassirer, Schlick, and Wittgenstein. It can be regarded as an ancestor of Thomas Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions, it anticipated current discussions on the role of models in science, and it represents an important chapter in the history of conventionalism. Audience: Philosophers of science, historians of science, Wittgenstein scholars, historians and philosophers of technology, physicists, electrical engineers, and mathematicians
Ludwig Wittgenstein : public and private occasions by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and Multiple languages and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the safety of his manuscripts, Ludwig Wittgenstein was free to endlessly revise, rework and reframe his philosophical thoughts. Thus his published work yields a glimpse of just a small portion of Wittgenstein's philosophical thought; the portion that eventually appeared in print. Yet for Wittgenstein, philosophy was an on-going activity, a process. Only in his dialogue with the philosophical community and in his private moments does Wittgenstein's philosophical practice fully come to light. Those public and private occasions are collected here

Strukturwandel der Wissenschaft : Positionen zum Epochenbruch( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit Robotik, Digitalisierung, softwaregesteuerten Präzisionsinstrumenten und hochkomplexen Simulationsverfahren wird heute Technik zur treibenden Kraft der wissenschaftlichen Forschungspraxis. Gleichzeitig sieht sich die universitäre Forschung wachsenden gesellschaftlichen Einflüssen ausgesetzt und nähert sich selbst immer mehr der Industrieforschung an, woraus sich neue Fragen nach den Werten und der Objektivität der Wissenschaft ergeben. Derartig weitreichende Veränderungen haben zahlreiche Spekulationen darüber provoziert, ob sich in der Wissenschaftsgeschichte gegenwärtig ein Epochenbruch vollzieht. Dieser Sammelband setzt sich aus philosophischen, historischen und kulturwissenschaftlichen Perspektiven mit den Epochenbruchthesen auseinander, bestätigt und bestreitet ihn.

Technisches Nichtwissen by Alexander Friedrich( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and German and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Nichtwissen ist in aller Munde. Von Nichtwissenskulturen in der zweiten oder reflexiven Moderne ist die Rede, von Agnotologie als neuem Forschungszweig, von<i> wicked problems </i>und ihren <i>clumsy solutions</i>. Wo Nichtwissen sich durch Komplexitätssteigerung unwiderruflich im zu Wissenden einnistet, fordert es als Grenze, Schranke und Kehrseite des Wissens die sogenannte Wissensgesellschaft heraus. Vor allem Risikopotentiale und Gefahren kommen hier in den Blick, von denen wir gerade genug wissen, um Wissensansprüche zu formulieren, die sich womöglich nie einlösen lassen.Das klassisch erkenntnistheoretische Problem: "Was können wir wissen?" steht heute in einem Spannungsverhältnis zu der wissenspolitischen Frage: "Was müssen wir wissen?" Was wir wissen müssen, ist einerseits so viel wie nötig, wenn es um Fragen von Sicherheit und Gesundheit geht - andererseits aber so wenig wie möglich, wenn es in Alltag, Wirtschaft oder Wissenschaft darauf ankommt, Wissen an technische Systeme oder Expertenkulturen zu delegieren.Bezeichnet politisch handlungsorientiertes und wissenschaftliches Nichtwissen zunächst ein Defizit, ist technisches Nichtwissen gleichermaßen erstrebenswert und problematisch. Einige, die Technik für angewandtes Wissen halten, mögen darin eine contradictio in adjecto sehen, manche sich um eine dem technischen Nichtwissen geschuldeten Technikfeindlichkeit sorgen, andere daraus die nötige Demut gegen verstiegene Allmachtsphantasien beziehen, während ihre Gegenspieler von Maschinen träumen, die über den Horizont intellektueller Nachvollziehbarkeit immer weiter hinauseilen.Mit Beiträgen von:Suzana Alpsancar, Lars Bullmann, Marcus Burkhardt, Eoin Carney, Pelle Ehn, Stefan Frisch, Gerhard Gamm, Petra Gehring, Till Greite, Hans Hasse, Andreas Kaminski, Gregor Kanitz, Matthias Koch, Christian Köhler, Johannes Lenhard, Alexandre Métraux, Alfred Nordmann, Tanja Paulitz, Tom Poljanšek, Sandra Pravica, Katrin Solhdju, Werner Sombart, Florian Sprenger, Sebastian Vehlken und Rüdiger Zill
