Concepts of Space: The History of Theories of Space in Physics: Third, Enlarged Edition by Max Jammer
English | 1993 | ISBN: 0486271196 | 288 Pages | PDF | 14 MB
Although the concept of space is of fundamental importance in both physics and philosophy, until the publication of this book, the idea of space had never been treated in terms of its historical development. It remained for Dr. Jammer, noted scholar and historian of science, to trace the evolution of the idea of space in this comprehensive, thought-provoking study. The focus of the book is on physical, rather than metaphysical, ideas of space; however, philosophical or theological speculations are discussed when relevant.
