Pressestimmen

' ... a rich work full of fascinating material on the history of the interaction between physics and philosophy.' Lawrence Sklar 'I thoroughly recommend this book ... there is no doubt that Torretti presents a shining example of physics and philosophy intelligently interacting, structured as a sweeping historical review. For those inspired to venture further the comprehensive bibliography will be an added bonus.' Zentrallblatt fur Mathematik
