Book Description

Nobel laureate Erwin Schrödinger's lectures on the history and philosophy of science are legendary. Here the texts of some of his most famous lectures are made available for the first time in many years. As Roger Penrose's foreword confirms, they are as relevant today as when they were first published.

From the Back Cover

Nobel laureate Erwin Schrodinger was one of the most distinguished scientists of the twentieth century; his lectures on the history and philosophy of science are legendary. 'Nature and the Greeks and Science and Humanism' makes available for the first time in many years the text of two of Schrodinger's most famous lecture series. Nature and the Greeks offers a comprehensive historical account of the twentieth-century scientific world picture, tracing modern science back to the earliest stages of Western philosophic thought. Science and Humanism addresses some of the most fundamental questions of the century: what is the value of scientific research; and how do the achievements of modern science affect the relationship between material and spiritual matters? A foreword by Roger Penrose sets the lectures in a contemporary context, and affirms that they are as relevant today as when they were first published.
