One of the earliest and best philosophical studies of the physics of relativity and quantum mechanics, 

The Analysis of Matter was a companion volume to The Analysis of Mind, which had provided a similar service for psychology.  In an attempt to demonstrate the logical structure of the world, Russell develops his views about the philosophy of science out of the theories of scientists such as Einstein, Bohr and Heisenberg.

‘The whole book is candid and stimulating and, for both its subject and its treatment, one of the best that Mr Russell has given us.’  The Times

‘A profound book, the significance of which will increase with the years. 
Not since Helmholz has anyone mastered physics, mathematics 
and psychology as Russell has.’  Herald Tribune


Science; Philosophy
