Einstein : his life and times by Philipp Frank( Book )

72 editions published between 1947 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much has been written about Albert Einstein, technical and biographical, but very little remains as valuable as this unique hybrid of a book written by Einstein's colleague and contemporary. Both rich in personal insights and grounded in a deep knowledge of twentieth-century science, Phillip Frank's biography anchors the reader with a lucid overview of physics and draws an intimate portrait of the Nobel Prize-winner
Philosophy of science; the link between science and philosophy by Philipp Frank( Book )

62 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A main purpose of the present book is to show that one does not need to diminish research and teaching in science in order to enhance interest in the moral and philosophical aspects of the world. The fact is stressed that the deeper we dig into actual science the more its links with philosophy become obvious. In this book, we attempt to start from the way in which science is understood by the scientist in his most creative and critical moods. However, we shall also attempt to establish links with the historical types of philosophy like idealism and materialism that have actually served as supports of moral, religious, and political creeds"--Preface.

Einstein : sein Leben u. seine Zeit by Philipp Frank( Book )

21 editions published between 1949 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Manuskript zu diesem Buch ist unter merkwürdigen Um ständen entstanden. Ich begann die Niederschrift 1939 in New York, setzte sie 1940 in Chicago fort und beendete den größten Teil 1941 in Boston. Das Manuskript war in deutscher Sprache geschrieben, aber begreiflicherweise unter der damaligen Reichs regierung nicht für eine Veröffentlichung in deutscher Sprache bestimmt; 'es sollte ins Englische übersetzt und in Amerika ver öffentlicht werden. Bevor die übersetzung beendet war, wurde die Einsteinsche Relativitätstheorie, die oft als eine spekulative Hypothese an gesehen und unterschätzt wurde, die Grundlage einer ganz neuen Wendung in der technischen Entwicklung der Menschheit: Die Kernenergie des Atoms wurde die Energiequelle der Zukunft, und all die trüben Prophezeiungen über ein Versagen der Energie quellen konnten zum alten Gerümpel geworfen werden. Jm Jahre 1945 fügte ich eine Darstellung dieser Wendung in englischer Sprache hinzu, und dieser Teil ist der einzige im Buch, der aus dem Englischen übersetzt ist. Die amerikanische Ausgabe erschien 1947; große Teile der deutschen Fassung wurden nicht aufgenom men. Daher ist das vorliegende Buch die erste vollständige Wieder gabe meines Manuskriptes
Proceedings of the Boston colloquium for the philosophy of science, 1962-1964 by R. S Cohen( Book )

13 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth volume of Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science consists mainly of papers which were contributed to our Colloquium during the past few years. The volume represents a wide range of interests in contem porary philosophy of science: issues in the philosophy of mind and of language, the neurophysiology of perceptual and linguistic behavior, philosophy of history and of the social sciences, and studies in the fun damental categories and methods of philosophy and the inter-relation ships of the sciences with ethics and metaphysics. Papers on the logic and methods of the natural sciences, including biological, physical and mathematical topics appear in the fifth volume of our series. We have included in the present volume the first English translation of the classic and fundamental work on aphasia by Carl Wernicke, together with a lucid and appreciative guide to his work by Dr. Norman Geschwind. The papers were not written to form a coherent volume, nor have they been edited with such a purpose. They represent current work-in progress, both in the United States and in Europe. Although most of the authors are philosophers, it is worth noting that we have essays of philosophical significance here written by a sociologist, an anthropologist, a political scientist, and by three neurophysiologists. We hope that collaboration among working scientists and working philosophers may develop further
