ABOUT THIS BOOK:
In this book the author endeavors to rethink the old problem of the relationship between philosophy and physical science in the light of existential phenomenology. The book does not present a philosophy of science in the usual sense of the term. This may be noted immediately in a scanning of the table of contents; most of the topics customarily dealt with in a book on philosophy of science are not included. As it stands, this study is intended rather as a preparation for a philosophy of science from the point of view of existential phenomenology. The purpose of the book is to focus attention upon two themes seldom mentioned in the traditional literature, but which in the phenomenological viewpoint precisely constitute the central issue.
