Haphazard reality: Half a century of science

Casimir, himself a well-known health care provider, studied and labored with 3 nice physicists of the 20 th century: Niels Bohr, Wolfgang Pauli and Paul Ehrenfest. In his autobiography, the bright theoretician shall we the reader witness the revolution that resulted in quantum physics, whose effect on smooth society grew to become out to be again and again better than the 1st atomic physicists may have imagined.

Der Aufstieg der Wissenschaftlichen Philosophie

ZUR 2. AUFLAGE DER DEUTSCHEN AUSGABE Warum eröffnen wir eine Buchreihe über Wissenschafts­ theorie verschiedener Hauptdisziplinen mit einer Neu­ auflage von Hans Reichenbachs Buch "Aufstieg der wissen­ schaftlichen Philosophie", dessen 1. Auflage 1951 in den united states erschien? Weil es sich mit seiner präzisen und ver­ ständlichen Sprache nach siebzehn Jahren immer noch so frisch wie damals liest, weil seine Problematik zwischen Rationalismus und Empirismus, seine competition gegen Metaphysik und Ontologie als philosophische Grund­ legung der Naturwissenschaft immer noch in Mittel­ europa aktuell ist.
