Scheibe is one of the most important philosophers of science in Germany. He has written extensively on all the problems that confront the philosophy of physics: rationalism vs. empiricism; reductionism; the foundations of quantum mechanics; space-time, and much more. Since little of his work has been translated into English, he is not yet well known internationally. However, this collection of some 40 of his papers will remedy this unfortunate situation.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This volume contains 38 selected papers by Erhard Scheibe. ... This book is highly recommended to all physicists who like to contemplate about their science. The author ... knows the language of mathematicians and physicists and explains the philosophy in a very readable and illuminating style. The topics of the collected articles meet central points of the philosophy of nature, the theory of knowledge, and the theory of science." (K.-E. Hellwig, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1088 (14), 2006)
