Beschreibung

This collection sheds light on the most important and revolutionary developments in mathematics and physics with far-reaching consequences for the philosophy of science: the geometry of the 19th and 20th centuries based on analysis and group theory.

In the first half of the 19th century geometry changed radically, and withina century it helped to revolutionize both mathematics and physics. It also put the epistemology and the philosophy of science on a new footing. In this volume a sound overview of this development is given by leading mathematicians, physicists, philosophers, and historians of science. This interdisciplinary approach gives this collection a unique character. It can be used by scientists and students, but it also addresses a general readership.

Klappentext

In the first half of the 19th century geometry changed
radically, and withina century it helped to revolutionize
both mathematics and physics. It also put the epistemology
and the philosophy of science on a new footing. In this
volume a sound overview of this development is given by
leading mathematicians, physicists, philosophers, and
historians of science. This interdisciplinary approach gives
this collection a unique character. It can be used by
scientists and students, but it also addresses a general
readership.
