Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1954. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine / Near Fine. Item #007306
Orig. maroon cloth. 97 pp. Some minor staining to outer margin of a few pages near front. Dust jacket is cropped to head of front flap but price is intact at tail edge. Some darkening to spine and edges, slight chipping to spine ends, short tear to head of rear cover. This eloquent little book is in itself a proof of the Heraclitean maxim that the way forward is the way back. This is not merely a scientist's antiquarianism, nor a patronizing interest in the 'crudities' of earlier thinkers. Dr. Schrodinger demonstrates that Greek thinkers are worthy of a scientist's serious respect.
