Foundations of physics by Robert Bruce Lindsay( Book )

59 editions published between 1936 and 1981 in English and Spanish and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A bridge between semipopular works for the general reader and technical treatises written for specialists, this excellent work discusses the foundational ideas and background of modern physics. It is not a text on theoretical physics, but a discussion of the methods of physic description and construction of theory. As such, it is especially valuable for the physicist with a background in elementary calculus who is interested in the ideas which give meaning to the data and tools of modern physics
Einstein's space and Van Gogh's sky : physical reality and beyond by Lawrence L LeShan( Book )

26 editions published between 1982 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lawrence LeShan and Henry Margenau argue that Western culture's precise and literal systems to explain reality were developed to accommodate the human need to control the environment, but that explainations fall short because they do not include non-physical
Theory of intermolecular forces by Henry Margenau( Book )

38 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theory of Intermolecular Forces deals with the exposition of the principles and techniques of the theory of intermolecular forces. The text focuses on the basic theory and surveys other aspects, with particular attention to relevant experiments. The initial chapters introduce the reader to the history of intermolecular forces. Succeeding chapters present topics on short, intermediate, and long range atomic interactions; properties of Coulomb interactions; shape-dependent forces between molecules; and physical adsorption. The book will be of good use to experts and students of quantum mechanics
