9780262581691: Space from Zeno to Einstein: Classic Readings with a Contemporary Commentary

Learning through original texts can be a powerful heuristic tool. This book collects a dozen classic readings that are generally accepted as the most significant contributions to the philosophy of space. The readings have been selected both on the basis of their relevance to recent debates on the nature of space and on the extent to which they carry premonitions of contemporary physics. In his detailed commentaries, Nick Huggett weaves together the readings and links them to our modern understanding of the subject. Together the readings indicate the general historical development of the concept of space, and in his commentaries Huggett explains their logical relations. He also uses our contemporary understanding of space to help clarify the key ideas of the texts. One goal is to prepare the reader (both scientist and nonscientist) to learn and understand relativity theory, the basis of our current understanding of space. The readings are by Zeno, Plato, Aristotle, Euclid, Descartes, Newton, Leibniz, Clarke, Berkeley, Kant, Mach, Poincaré, and Einstein.

About the Author:

Nick Huggett is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Review:

Robert Pennock has provided a lucid, accessible, sensitive and complete refutation of the latest emanations from the Creationist camp, and all open-minded citizens should be grateful.

(Philip Kitcher, Professor of Philosophy, Columbia University and University of California)

Several very good books have been written responding to the quirky criticisms that biblical creationists tirelessly raise to evolutionary theory. Robert Pennock's Tower of Babel is the most detailed and comprehensive refutation of these criticisms to date. It is also a very good read.

(David L. Hull, Dressler Professor in the Humanities, Department of Philosophy, Northwestern University)

More than just a sophisticated introduction to the historical debates about space, this book will serve as an excellent text for any philosophy of science class, as well as a valuable resource for researchers in the field. Huggett deftly separates the many philosophical issues involved in the study of space, introducing them systematically with well-chosen readings accompanied by clear and philosophically astute commentaries.

(Ned Hall, Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, MIT)
