      The Gay Science by Friedrich Nietzsche (Kaufmann or Nauckhoff translation). You didn’t think I’d lead off with a nineteenth century German philosopher did you? But The Gay Science really is gay, in the sense of free-spirited and joyous. It’s got aphorisms, epigrams, songs, poems and the controversial claim that “God is dead.” Read Nietzsche’s “most personal” work for his. His book on mechanics also echoes Marcet. By young William James was studying Lardner's natural philosophy text. Lardner still reflected Marcet's organization. He expanded her treatment of machinery, which was a regular part of natural philosophy.

    The heart of Aristotle's work in natural philosophy comprises four central works: Physics, On the Heavens, On Coming-to-be and Passing-away, and Meteorology. Spanning eight books, Physics, has little to do with what we know as "physics" and is more properly characterized as natural science. The first book modifies the traditional understanding of first principles. This book embodies the natural philosophy of the eighteenth-century, for instance, Moore regularly mentions Baconian philosophy and ancient writers such as Pliny, illustrating how authors drew on ancient texts during the eighteenth-century.3 Provenance: The most recent book-plate on the front cover appears to be a nineteenth-century.

      Feser’s book adds to a growing body of literature on neo-Aristotelian approaches in metaphysics and the philosophy of science. However, Feser stands out from other analytic neo-Aristotelians with his in-depth knowledge and discussion of 20 th and 21 st century neo-Thomistic literature, and one can learn a lot from reading this book . Pop science and natural philosophy Posted on J by Diane Coyle Partly thanks to having had a few long flights, I’ve been reading some popular science books – I find them bizarrely relaxing & am sure it’s good for me to keep up.
