Relativity: The Theory and Its Philosophy: Foundations & Philosophy of Science & Technology

Relativity: The Theory and its Philosophy provides a completely self-contained treatment of the philosophical foundations of the theory of relativity. It also surveys the most essential mathematical techniques and concepts that are indispensable to an understanding of the foundations of both the special and general theories of relativity. In…

Western societies have recently entered, wittingly or not, their first post-philosophical age. It's a bold experiment in unassisted history. The long struggle to achieve truth, method, logos, vision, reason, system, structure, etc. has left the making of local and temporary agreements on a neo-pragmatic basis as the only standing pillar of wisdom. The relativist/pragmatist’s perspective grants a poor overall direction, however. In front of the global community of diversities, the relativist faces the future on an impromptu schedule, a risky journey.
Being-to-the-world is what we humans share. It’s a disquieting condition. It allows for all understanding and misapprehension, certainty and doubt. All-encompassing grasp, philosophy's original purpose, is still what we should care about. Yet, no universal knowledge can be found where philosophy lost itself, on local paths to some comforting answer. The demise of philosophy as vehicle of ordainment is a great leap forward. But it leaves a void that we had better fill with a new overall conception, lest anything be true or false, wrong or right at anyone’s whim. A cool, primary convergence of concepts below a seedbed of welcome difference is what prosophy is after.

And when past societies had separately prospered in peace within their local solutions, now that they are melting in one big pot an unbiased vision is due. Common grounds and all sort of difference should be suitably encompassed. This inclusive picture I call prosophy; its hands-on branch, general or elementary biography.
