Haphazard reality: Half a century of science

Casimir, himself a well-known health professional, studied and labored with 3 nice physicists of the 20 th century: Niels Bohr, Wolfgang Pauli and Paul Ehrenfest. In his autobiography, the intense theoretician shall we the reader witness the revolution that ended in quantum physics, whose effect on sleek society grew to become out to be time and again greater than the 1st atomic physicists can 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.

E. forced labour for a landowner); it had suffered decades of unjustly heavy taxation and the frequent threats, and realities, of famine; there was poverty and social injustice on a huge scale. So we need to understand, for example, how the pursuit of the ‘correct’ or ‘objective’ proof of the intermediate value theorem, or the ‘proper’ definition of a line, could, without hypocrisy or blindness, be regarded as best promoting the common good. The entire drive and direction of these two goals—the moral and the mathematical— appear, while not directly opposed to one another, yet to be in such tension that it is hard for us to imagine them coalescing and forming part of the mainspring of the life and work of a single individual.

It was a very low point in the history of the Church when, at the Council of Constance in 1415, Jan Hus was condemned to be burned at the stake for heresy. This was taken as a national insult in Bohemia and the subsequent Hussite reform movement, and associated wars, was not an isolated outbreak but a local form of profound revolt that was manifesting itself across the whole of Europe. The Habsburg dynasty first came to power in Bohemia in 1526 through Ferdinand I. By the late sixteeth century two-thirds of Bohemia was still Protestant and Czech speaking, the other third Catholic and German speaking.

It is best understood in the context of Bolzano’s overall programme of reform of the sciences where, as we have seen, he regards mathematics as one of the best examples of wissenschaftlich organization but even here there is much room for improvement and geometry is regarded as in the worst condition (BD Preface). After a summary of the contents of BG, we shall review briefly the situation of elementary geometry around 1800, especially through some contemporary German texts. The work BG consists of three parts: a Preface outlines Bolzano’s motivation and what he regards as original in the work, Part I contains a theory of triangles and parallel lines, and Part II is a sketch of ideas for a theory of the straight line.
