Beschreibung:

Universally recognized as bringing about a transformation of the notions of space, time, and motion in physics, Einstein's theory of gravitation, known as "general relativity," was also a defining event for 20th century philosophy of science. This book looks at the argument that the path actually taken contributed to the impasse over realism.
Einstein's theory of gravitation, known as 'general relativity', was also a defining event for 20th century philosophy of science. During the decisive first ten years of the theory's existence, two main tendencies dominated it philosophical reception. This book is an extended argument that the path actually taken, which became logical empiricist philosophy of science, greatly contributed to the current impasse over realism, whereas new possibilities are opened inrevisiting and reviving the spirit of the more sophisticated tendency , a cluster of viewpoints broadly termed transcendental idealism, and furthering its articulation.
