9780851247403: The Analysis of Matter

The Analysis of Matter is one of the earliest and best philosophical studies of the new physics of relativity and quantum mechanics. Written at the time of major new developments in physics and just when quantum mechanics was being developed, Russell offers an analysis of the concepts and problems that are central to a philosophical understanding of physics, and argues for a revised concept of matter. The Analyis of Matter demonstrates the logical structure of the world and develops Russell's views on the philosophy of science out of the theories of such scientists as Einstein, Bohr and Heisenberg.

About the Author:

Bertrand Russell's many books include Sceptical Essays (1998), his Autobiography (1999), Common Sense and Nuclear Warfare (2000), Freedom and Organisation (2001) and Scientific Outlook (2001), all published by Routledge.

Review:

`It is a profound book, the significance of which will increase with the years. Not since Helmholz has any one mastered physics, mathematics and psychology as Russell has.' - Herald Tribune

`The force of his long training in philosophy and mathematics forces each item in position and cuts it in the closeness of contact. He succeeds in establishing a way to think about physics - by making it, in spite of himself, metaphysical.' - Hound and Horn

`The whole book is candid and stimulating and for both its subject and its treatment, one of the best that Mr Russell has given us.' - The Times --Na
