By Paul Feyerabend,Stefano Gattei,Joseph Agassi

This number of the writings of Paul Feyerabend is targeted on his philosophy of quantum physics, the hotbed of the most important problems with his such a lot debated principles. Written among 1948 and 1970, those writings come from his first and best interval. those early works are vital for 2 major purposes. First, they rfile Feyerabend's deep drawback with the philosophical implications of quantum physics and its interpretations. those principles have been paid much less realization within the following twenty years. moment, the writings give you the an important historical past for Feyerabend's evaluations of Karl Popper and Thomas Kuhn. even if hardly thought of through students, Feyerabend's early paintings culminated within the first model of opposed to strategy. those writings guided him on the entire key problems with his so much recognized and debated theses, similar to the incommensurability thesis, the rules of proliferation and tenacity, and his specific model of relativism, and extra particularly on quantum mechanics.
