This work was revolutionary in its attempt to give formal philosophical shape to emerging experimental science. It challenged the entire edifice of the philosophy of Bacon's time, and left its mark on all subsequent discussions of scientific method.
by Alon Segev - De Gruyter
This book explores the phenomenon of the Third Reich from a philosophical perspective. It concentrates on how Nazi Germany, the Holocaust and Anti-Semitism are conceived by eight German thinkers, exploring the tension between ideology and philosophy.
