Book description

By focusing on the conceptual issues faced by nineteenth century physicists, this book clarifies the status of field theory, the ether, and thermodynamics in the work of the period. A remarkably synthetic account of a difficult and fragmentary period in scientific development.

Reviews

"This is an interesting and well-written account of the transition of physics at the end of the 18th century as a synonym for natural philosophy to a distinct natural science with definite characteristics by the end of the 19th century." A.S. Crowell, Science Books & Films

"...for each chapter...a valuable extensive bibiliograhic essay...for reference and further reading." A.D. Crowell, Science Books & Films
