This volume claims to be 'Galilean Class'. What does that mean? In addition to his work on astronomy Galileo is credited with beginning the 'Age of Empirical Science' by demonstrating that heavier objects do not fall faster under the influence of a gravitational field. Greek philosophers said experimentation was foolish, and if one reads the ancient texts as to why a heavier object should fall faster even today knowing better one is inclined to accept it!
Human understanding began in the dark ages of myth and superstition, then progressed to the age of reason and logic, which ended when Galileo founded experimental science. The final tool that completes epistemology is that of the utility of 'Transcendence' in scientific theory formation. Can metaphysics possibly become part of physical science? Before Einstein relativity was considered metaphysical...
It will be profoundly interesting to see how this plays out. A shift from logic to empiricism seems easier even though it was 'preached' against by Greek philosophers.
The test in this volume is the prediction (by transcendence) of three new lines in the hydrogen spectrum hidden behind the uncertainty principle.
There is much more merit to this volume, much in terms of more traditional steps in physical science. But I wanted to address what this reviewer considers the most profound. There has not been an age of discovery for about 100 years. This one may far outstrip prior ages...
