Description : In the past decades scholars in the field of Thomistic studies repeatedly expressed the desirability of an up-to-date manual on the philosophy of nature & anthropology of St. Thomas Aquinas. Questions demanding to be discussed concern, for instance, the precise nature of a philosophical & a scientific approach, the place of classical philosophy of nature in our time, the value of the atomic representation of material reality, the relevance of the concept of substance. Is it still possible to speak of the human soul? What is the relation between man & the world? The author, a well-known specialist in Thomistic studies, tries to answer these & similar questions in the light of the principles of Aquinas. The explanations are placed in a historical context; the numerous notes give the relevant texts of Aquinas in Latin. Some 500 authors are quoted. Contents: The book presents the general philosophy of nature (substance, nature, problems of movement, place & time), the special philosophy of nature (cosmology; the philosophy of living beings & anthropology) - The last chapters concern the origin of life & man's place in the world & history.

Description : In Systematicity, Paul Hoyningen-Huene answers the question "What is science?" by proposing that scientific knowledge is primarily distinguished from other forms of knowledge, especially everyday knowledge, by being more systematic. "Science" is here understood in the broadest possible sense, encompassing not only the natural sciences but also mathematics, the social sciences, and the humanities. The author develops his thesis in nine dimensions in which it is claimed that science is more systematic than other forms of knowledge: regarding descriptions, explanations, predictions, the defense of knowledge claims, critical discourse, epistemic connectedness, an ideal of completeness, knowledge generation, and the representation of knowledge. He compares his view with positions on the question held by philosophers from Aristotle to Nicholas Rescher. The book concludes with an exploration of some consequences of Hoyningen-Huene's view concerning the genesis and dynamics of science, the relationship of science and common sense, normative implications of the thesis, and the demarcation criterion between science and pseudo-science.

Description : How do major scientific discoveries reshape their originators’, and our own, sense of reality and concept of the physical world? The Scientist as Philosopher explores the interaction between physics and philosophy. Clearly written and well illustrated, the book first places the scientist-philosophers in the limelight as we learn how their great scientific discoveries forced them to reconsider the time-honored notions with which science had described the natural world. Then, the book explains that what we understand by nature and science have undergone fundamental conceptual changes as a result of the discoveries of electromagnetism, thermodynamics and atomic structure. Even more dramatically, the quantum theory and special theory of relativity questioned traditional assumptions about causation and the passage of time. The author concludes that the dance between science and philosophy is an evolutionary process, which will keep them forever entwined.
