Forces and Fields: The Concept of Action at a Distance in the History of Physics

Forces and Fields: The Concept of Action at a Distance in the History of Physics by Mary B. Hesse
English | June 17, 2005 | ISBN: 0486442403 | 303 Pages | PDF | 43 MB

This history of physics focuses on the question, "How do bodies act on one another across space?" The variety of answers illustrates the function of fundamental analogies or models in physics, as well as the role of so-called unobservable entities. Forces and Fields presents an in-depth look at the science of ancient Greece, and it examines the influence of antique philosophy on seventeenth-century thought.

Physical Sciences and History of Physics (Boston Studies in the Philosophy and History of Science) by Robert S. Cohen
English | 1984 | ISBN: 940097180X | 260 Pages | PDF | 10 MB

These essays on the conceptual understanding of modern physics strike directly at some of the principal difficulties faced by contemporary philos­ ophers of physical science. Moreover, they reverberate to earlier and classical struggles with those difficulties. Each of these essays may be seen as both a commentary on our predecessors and an original analytic interpretation.

The History of Physics in Cuba (Boston Studies in the Philosophy and History of Science) by Angelo Baracca
English | 2014 | ISBN: 9401780404 | 446 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

This book brings together a broad spectrum of authors, both from inside and from outside Cuba, who describe the development of Cuba's scientific system from the colonial period to the present. It is a unique documentation of the self-organizing power of a local scientific community engaged in scientific research on an international level. The first part includes several contributions that reconstruct the different stages of the history of physics in Cuba, from its beginnings in the late colonial era to the present.

History of Physics by Florian Cajori
English | 1962 | ISBN: 0486209709 | 439 Pages | DJVU | 5 MB

Since the first appearance of this History, many things have happened in the development of physics. To voun!! students of science the discovery of radioactivity and the introduction
of the electron are not happenings of their own time, but are events of the past fully as much as are Galileo's experiments on falling bodies and Newton's law of gravitation. For this
reason it is desirable to present to the young-er students the historic outline which to the older generation is part and parcel of its own intellectual life and experience.
