Title:New Essays on Leibniz Reception [electronic resource] : In Science and Philosophy of Science 1800-2000
Author(s): Ralf Krmer
Yannick Chin-Drian
Date:2012
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a collection of essays on the reception of Leibnizs thinking in the sciences and in the philosophy of science in the 19th and 20th centuries. Authors studied include C.F. Gauss, Georg Cantor, Kurd Lasswitz,Bertrand Russell, Ernst Cassire r, Louis Couturat, Hans Reichenbach, Hermann Weyl, Kurt Gdel and Gregory Chaitin. In addition, we consider concepts and problems central to Leibnizs thought and that of the later authors: thecontinuum, space, identity, number, the infinite and the infinit ely small, the projects of a universal language, a calculus of logic, a mathesis universalis etc. The book brings together two fields of research in the history ofphilosophy and of science (research on Leibniz, and the research concerned with some major d evelopments in the 19th and 20th centuries) it describes how Leibnizs thought appears in the works of these authors, in order to betterunderstand Leibnizs influence on contemporary science and philosophy but it also assesses that reception critically, con fronting it in particular with the current state of Leibniz research and with the various editions of hiswork

Title:Ultimate Explanations of the Universe [electronic resource]
Author(s): Michael Heller
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:We humans are collectively driven by a powerful - yet not fully explained - instinct to understand. We would like to see everything established, proven, laid bare. The more important an issue, the more we desire to see itclarified, stripped of all se crets, all shades of gray. What could be more important than to understand the Universe and ourselves as a part of it? To find a window onto our origin and our destiny? This book examines how far our moderncosmological theories - with their sometimes auda cious models, such as inflation, cyclic histories, quantum creation, parallel universes - can take us towards answering these questions. Can such theories lead us to ultimate truths,leaving nothing unexplained? Last, but not least, Heller addresses the th orny problem of why and whether we should expect to find theories with all-encompassing explicative power

Title:Particle Metaphysics [electronic resource] : A Critical Account of Subatomic Reality
Author(s): Brigitte Falkenburg
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The empirical successes of atomic, nuclear, and particle physics have not reduced -- and may never fully resolve -- the philosophical controversies about the inner constitution of matter. This book examines these debates byexploring the particle conc ept in physics. Are the particles of modern physics real or are they fictitious entities, their existence deduced merely by the careless application of abstract theories? Or are the philosophers involvedin the debate about scientific realism dedicating th emselves to a problem that has long been solved by physicists? Studies of the experimental basis and theoretical relevance of the particle concept reveal that these questions arefar from easy to answer, because, since the introduction of quantum theory, p hysical science no longer possesses a single unambiguous particle concept. All those interested in the true meaning of such physical concepts will findthis book informative and thought provoking. It is written at a level accessible to scholars, students a nd teachers of science and philosophy
