    It is less about the philosophy of physics per se than a history of physics + facsimile of content from physics and math textbooks. I say it is a history of physics because the book is arranged according to chronological emergence of ideas in physics, that is, pre-Newton, Newtonian ideas, classical ideas about electromagnetism and heat /5.   In December, a group of professors from America's top philosophy departments, including Rutgers,* Columbia, Yale, and NYU, set out to establish the philosophy of cosmology as a new field of study Author: Ross Andersen.

From entropy and the second law of thermodynamics to the Big Bang theory and the origins of the universe to quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity, Carroll weaves a lucid, enthusiastic, illuminating and refreshingly accessible story of the universe, and our place in it, at the intersection of cosmology, theoretical physics, information.

), has written as follows: "In former days a physical phenomenon was explained by reducing it to the principles of classical mechanics, by giving to its laws the form impressed by Lagrange on the equations of dynamics. Any introduction to the philosophy of physics must therefore focus on the conceptual development of physics itself.

This book pursues that development from Galileo and Newton through Maxwell and Boltzmann to Einstein and the founders of quantum by: It follows that there is no sharp line to be drawn between philosophy of physics and physics itself. Some of the best work in the philosophy of physics is being done by physicists, as witnessed by the fact that several of the contributors to the volume are theoretical physicists: viz., Ellis, Emch, Harvey, Landsman, Rovelli, ‘t Hooft, the last of whom is a Nobel laureate.
