About this Item

Original cloth with minor wear; smudge on half title, else very clean. With the bookplate of Arnold Thackray on the pastedown. First edition. Based on the Gifford Lectures presented by Eddington at the University of Edinburgh in 1927, according the author's preface, "it treats of the philosophical outcome of the great changes in scientific thought which have recently come about.The aim is to make clear the scientific view of the world as it stands at the present day, and, where it is incomplete, to judge the direction in which modern ideas appear to be tending."Eddington (1882-1944), a lifelong Quaker, was educated at Owens College (now University of Manchester) and Trinity College, Cambridge. He did pioneering work in astrophysics, fashioning "powerful mathematical tools and . . . [applying] them with imagination and consummate skill." Einstein considered Eddington's great book, Mathematical theory of relativity, "the finest presentation of the subject in any language" (DSB). Bookseller Inventory # 14944
