Science and hypothesis by Henri Poincaré( Book )

Science and Hypothesis is a study written in 1902, by the French mathematician, Henri Poincar.̌ It was designed with non-specialist readers in mind, and contains information on mathematics, space, physics, and biology. The main theme of this work is that the absolute truth of science is non-existent. It postulates that many scientific beliefs are closer to convenient conventions than valid explanations. The chapters of this book include: "Number and Magnitude", "On the Nature of Mathematical Reasoning", "Mathematical Magnitude and Experiment", "Space", "Non-Euclidean Geometries", "Space and Geometry", "Experiment and Geometry", etcetera. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an available, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author

Newton by Peter Ackroyd( Book )

1 edition published in 1927 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

When Newton was not yet twenty-five years old, he formulated calculus, hit upon the idea of gravity, and discovered that white light was made up of all the colors of the spectrum. By 1678, Newton designed a telescope to study the movement of the planets and published Principia, a milestone in the history of science, which set forth his famous laws of motion and universal gravitation. Newton's long-time research on calculus, finally made public in 1704, triggered a heated controversy as European scientists accused him of plagiarizing the work of the German scientist Gottfried Leibniz. In this third volume in the acclaimed Ackroyd's Brief Lives series, bestselling author Peter Ackroyd provides an engaging portrait of Isaac Newton, illuminating what we think we know about him and describing his seminal contributions to science and mathematics. A man of wide and eclectic interests, Newton blurred the borders between natural philosophy and speculation: he was as passionate about astrology as astronomy and dabbled in alchemy, while his religious faith was never undermined by his determination to interpret a modern universe as a mathematical universe. By brining vividly to life a somewhat puritanical man whose desire to experiment and explore bordered on the obsessive, Peter Ackroyd demonstrates the unique brilliance of Newton's perceptions, which changed our understanding of the world.
