EDDINGTON, Sir A.S.

Rating

Book Description hardcover. Condition: very good. Cambridge Univ Press 1946. Large 8vo publisher's cloth and incomplete dustwrapper; viii,292pp. First edition. One of the great science books of the 20th century, if not for the usual reasons. Eddington's last book, tidied up by E.T. Whittaker for publication, was his attempt to unify and transcend relativity and quantum physics. He called it 'Bottom's dream'. It was rarely understood and barely tolerated by many who said they did understand it - E.A. Milne who pursued the same grail with his 'kinematic relativity' gave it a particularly cruel and clever review in 'Nature'. So, folly or maunderings, heroic failure, or an unfinished symphony?.
