About this book

Examines the eternal questions of what makes good science and what, if any, is the proper end of scientific activity? Holton's analysis of these questions are shown in the light of their historical roots and the scientific and political controversies of the past century - thus covering the contributions of, and controversies surrounding, Bohr, Einstein and Mach, as well as an excellent analysis of the views of the anti-science adherents.


Ernst Mach and the fortunes of positivism; more on Mach and Einstein; quanta, relativity, and rhetoric; on the Jeffersonian research program; the controversy over the end of science; the anti-science phenomenon.
