    • MILESTONES OF CRITICAL THINKING a cura di IL GLIFO
    •  

    A collection of studies about the irrational phenomena and the genesis of specific mythologies that we can recognize in the most unexpected places of twentieth century high culture, and particularly in the science of nature.


    • Philosophy and the Physicists
      Susan Stebbing
      In this 1937 essay Stebbing analyzed the general philosophical conclusions that James Jeans and Arthur Eddington drew from the new quantum physics, as well as the many contaminations of their language with popular culture. The essay is an unitary cultural study about the position of natural science in the context of the twentieth century. Through ill-thought philosophical conclusions, science enters an area of indistinction with respect to the metaphors we build to make our existence justified.

    • Pragmatism and French Voluntarism
      Susan Stebbing
      Pragmatism and French Voluntarism, published in 1914, introduces us methodically into American pragmatism and into the many French anti-intellectualist currents of thought, which culminated in Bergson's philosophy. It is permeated with awareness of the deeply irrational and inconsistent statements which were in the epistemological currents of that time, and this awareness corresponds to a moral discomfort, clearly and strongly expressed, which invites us to further critical thinking.

    • Science at the Crossroads. A Rational Scrutiny of the Clock Paradox in Einstein's Relativity
      Herbert Dingle
      Science at the Crossroads was published by Herbert Dingle in 1972 at the end of a gruelling controversy with the English scientific world about the clock paradox in Einstein's special relativity. It is a seminal text, which allows us to understand and evaluate, with Cartesian clarity, the problem of that paradox. The essay contains a great wealth of philosophical and epistemological ideas and has a classic imprint, rich with sharp and clear distinctions, and very elegant in style.
