Essays in the Philosophy and History of Logic and Mathematics

Essays in the Philosophy and History of Logic and Mathematics. (Pozna Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Huma) by Jan Wole Ski
English | 2010 | ISBN: 9042030909 | 328 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

The book is a collection of the author's selected works in the philosophy and history of logic and mathematics. Papers in Part I include both general surveys of contemporary philosophy of mathematics as well as studies devoted to specialized topics, like Cantor's philosophy of set theory, the Church thesis and its epistemological status, the history of the philosophical background of the concept of number, the structuralist epistemology of mathematics and the phenomenological philosophy of mathematics.
Neurosis and Modernity: The Age of Nervousness in Sweden (History of Science and Medicine Library) by Pietikainen

In western countries, paths to modernity created socio-cultural conditions conducive to the dissemination of the language of nerves. This book examines historically the ways in which neurosis became a contagious diagnosis in Sweden, attaining the status of a national malady.
Survey Symbolic Logic (Thoemmes Press - Key Works in the History of Logic and Mathematics)

Survey Symbolic Logic (Thoemmes Press - Key Works in the History of Logic and Mathematics) by Clarence Irving Lewis
Thoemmes; Facsimile of 1918 ed edition | January 15, 2001 | English | ISBN: 185506880X | 416 pages | PDF | 62 MB

Modern interest in modal logic began with this seminal work by the American C. I. Lewis. As well as developing a theory of strict implication based on criticism of Russell and Whitehead’s concept of implication, it contains valuable historical information on the history and application of algebra to developments in symbolic logic.

Picturing Machines 1400-1700 (Transformations: Studies in the History of Science and Technology)uring Machines 1400-1700

Technical drawings by the architects and engineers of the Renaissance made use of a range of new methods of graphic representation. These drawings—among them Leonardo da Vinci's famous drawings of mechanical devices—have long been studied for their aesthetic qualities and technological ingenuity, but their significance for the architects and engineers themselves is seldom considered. The essays in Picturing Machines 1400-1700 take this alternate perspective and look at how drawing shaped the practice of early modern engineering. They do so through detailed investigations of specific images, looking at over 100 that range from sketches to perspective views to thoroughly constructed projections.

Wireless: From Marconi's Black-Box to the Audion (Transformations: Studies in the History of Science and Technology)

Wireless: From Marconi's Black-Box to the Audion (Transformations: Studies in the History of Science and Technology)
Publisher: The MIT Press | Pages: 272 | Publication Date: 2001-10-01 | ISBN: 0262082985 | PDF

By 1897 Guglielmo Marconi had transformed James Clerk Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetic waves into a workable wireless telegraphy system, and by 1907 Lee de Forest had invented the audion, a feedback amplifier and oscillator that opened the way to practical radio transmission. Fifteen years after Marconi’s invention, wireless had become an essential means of communication, as well as a hobby for many. This book offers a new perspective on the early days of wireless communication. Drawing on previously untapped archival evidence and recent work in the history and sociology of science and technology, it examines the substance and context of both experimental and theoretical aspects of engineering and scientific practices in the first years of this technology. It offers new insights into the relationship between Marconi and his scientific advisor, the physicist John Ambrose Fleming (inventor of the vacuum tube). It includes the full story of the infamous 1903 incident in which Marconi’s opponent Nevil Maskelyne interfered with Fleming’s public demonstration of Marconi’s syntonic (tuning) system at the Royal Institution by sending derogatory messages from his own transmitter. The analysis of the Maskelyne affair highlights the struggle between Marconi and his opponents, the efficacy of early syntonic devices, Fleming’s role as a public witness to Marconi’s private experiments, and the nature of Marconi’s "shows." It also provides a rare case study of how the credibility of an engineer can be created, consumed, and suddenly destroyed. The book concludes with a discussion of de Forest’s audion and the shift from wireless telegraphy to radio.
