In this book Lawrence Sklar demonstrates the interdependence of science and philosophy by examining a number of crucial problems on the nature of space and time problems that reuire for their resolution the resources of philosophy and of physicsThe overall issues explored are our knowledge of the geometry of the world t. A superb work on the epistemology of geometry The key uestion that Sklar explores is What is the epistemic status of the basic proposition

Ns to make his explorations intelligible to the reader with no advanced training in physics mathematics or philosophy The arguments are set forth step by step beginning from first principles; and the philosophical discussions are supplemented in detail by nontechnical expositions of crucial features of physical theories. This is an incredibly difficult book to read but it is also incredibly thorough and about as precisely written as one might hope for a boo

    A superb work on the epistemology of geometry The key uestion that Sklar explores is What is the epistemic status of the basic propositions of Euclidean and non Euclidean geometries? He provides no conclusive answer instead showing the shortcomings of various approaches

    This is a dense book about space time and spacetime go figure It focuses on uantum theory relativity geometry and the philosophical conseuences of theories within these fields Is used as a textbook for Philosophy of Sciences classes

    I read this as an undergrad As a physics major who became a physicsphilosophy double major this was right up my alley It's essentially a discussion of the intimate interconnections between philosophy physics and math especially geometry from Euclid through Einstein all in the context of space and time If you enjoy reading about math science and philosophy definitely check this out Very interesting stuff
