306 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 2,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Science and Hypothesis is a study written in 1902, by the French mathematician, Henri Poincar.̌ It was designed with nonspecialist 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 nonexistent. 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", "NonEuclidean 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, highquality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author

The foundations of science : science and hypothesis, the value of science, science and method by
Henri Poincaré(
Book
)
37 editions published between 1913 and 2015 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A member of the Académie française, Henri Poincaré (1854–1912) was one of the greatest mathematicians and theoretical physicists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His discovery of chaotic motion laid the foundations of modern chaos theory, and he was acknowledged by Einstein as a key contributor in the field of special relativity. He earned his enduring reputation as a philosopher of mathematics and science with this elegantly written work, which was first published in French as three separate essays: Science and Hypothesis (1902), The Value of Science (1905), and Science and Method (1908). Poincaré asserts that much scientific work is a matter of convention, and that intuition and prediction play key roles. George Halsted's authorised 1913 English translation retains Poincaré's lucid prose style, presenting complex ideas for both professional scientists and those readers interested in the history of mathematics and the philosophy of science
