Most widely held works by Volker Peckhaus
Ernst Zermelo : an approach to his life and work by Heinz-Dieter Ebbinghaus( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ernst Zermelo (1871-1953) is best-known for the statement of the axiom of choice and his axiomatization of set theory. However, he also worked in applied mathematics and mathematical physics. His dissertation, for example, promoted the calculus of variations, and he created the pivotal method in the theory of rating systems." "This biography attempts to shed light on all facets of Zermelo's life and achievements. Personal and scientific aspects are kept separate as far as coherence allows, in order to enable the reader to follow the one or the other of these threads. The description of his personality owes much to conversations with his late wife Gertrud. The presentation of his work explores motivations, aims, acceptance, and influence. Selected proofs and information gleaned from unpublished notes and letters add to the analysis." "All facts presented are documented by appropriate sources. The biography contains more than 40 photos and facsimiles, most of them provided by Gertrud Zermelo and published here for the first time."--Jacket

The Berlin Group and the philosophy of logical empiricism by Nikolay Milkov( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Berlin Group for scientific philosophy was active between 1928 and 1933 and was closely related to the Vienna Circle. In 1930, the leaders of the two Groups, Hans Reichenbach and Rudolf Carnap, launched the journal Erkenntnis. However, between the Berlin Group and the Vienna Circle, there was not only close relatedness but also significant difference. Above all, while the Berlin Group explored philosophical problems of the actual practice of science, the Vienna Circle, closely following Wittgenstein, was more interested in problems of the language of science. The book includes first discussion ever (in three chapters) on Walter Dubislav's logic and philosophy. Two chapters are devoted to another author scarcely explored in English, Kurt Grelling, and another one to Paul Oppenheim who became an important figure in the philosophy of science in the USA in the 1940s-1960s. Finally, the book discusses the precursor of the Nord-German tradition of scientific philosophy, Jacob Friedrich Fries

Die Berliner Gruppe : Texte zum Logischen Empirismus by Nikolay Milkov( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diese Anthologie versammelt die zentralen Texte der Berliner Gruppe um den Philosophen und Wissenschaftstheoretiker Hans Reichenbach, die in den 1920er Jahren parallel zum Wiener Kreis die Grundsätze einer "wissenschaftlichen Philosophie" entwickelte und die Grundlagen der modernen Wissenschaftstheorie legte. Die Bemühungen um die Etablierung einer "wissenschaftlichen Philosophie", die ab Mitte der 1920er Jahre in Deutschland und Österreich stattfanden und in die programmatische Formulierung des sogenannten Logischen Empirismus mündeten, werden im Allgemeinen mit dem "Wiener Kreis" um Moritz Sc

Eine Kritik des Supervaluationismus >>You do not improve a bad idea by iterating it<< = A review of Supervaluationism : >>You do not improve a bad idea by iterating it<< by Alexander Nowak( )

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Text stellt die formale Theorie des Supervaluationismus vor und kritisiert sie systematisch. Beginnend mit ihren skizzenhaften Anfängen in den 50er Jahren zur Behandlung von Vagheit in der Wissenschaftssprache, über ihre erste Formalisierung für die Zwecke der Freien Logiken bis hin zu ihrer modernen Verwendung zur Formalisierung semantischer Vagheit, werden formale und philosophische Eigenschaften ihrer unterschiedlichen Ausbaustufen diskutiert. Das Ziel der Untersuchung ist das Scheitern jeder supervaluationistischen Semantik für die korrekte Modellierung sprachlicher Vagheit festzustellen, indem auf Basis der von Mark Sainsbury geäußerten Kritik an mengentheoretischen Semantiken aufgezeigt wird, dass entweder letztlich scharfe Grenzen gezogen werden, wo sie nicht sein dürfen, oder die Existenz vager Mengen postuliert wird, für die es keine formale Grundlage gibt.. - The text presents the formal theory of supervaluationism and gives a systematical review. Its sketchy origins in the fifties dealing with the vagueness of the language of science, its first formalization for the aims of the free logic and its modern application in the formalization of semantic vagueness are discussed in terms of formal and philosophical properties of the various versions of the theory. The main intention is to show the ultimate failure of all supervaluationistic semantics in giving a proper formalization of semantic vagueness: With the help of Mark Sainsburys arguments against the use of set-theoretic semantics for this purpose, it is shown that we end up either drawing sharp boundaries where there ought to be none, or postulating so called vague sets without having any formal basis for these kind of objects
